South Korea and China – South Korean eyewear brand Gentle Monster is launching a collaborative collection of smart glasses with technology brand Huawei.
The 12-piece collection takes a stylish approach to smart technology, delivering a means of communication and entertainment that is comfortable and convenient. With three styles of optical glasses and two types of sunglasses, the wirelessly chargeable frames connect to a smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth for music playback and voice calls.
The glasses feature subtly integrated technology in the arms and wearers simply double-tap the frames close to their temples to answer or hang up a phone call, to play or pause music or interact with an in-built voice assistant. Huawei’s AI voice noise reduction technology is also integrated to effectively reduce noise pollution from the surrounding environment as well as interference on calls.
Technology continues to tap into fashion as a way of bringing innovations to our everyday outfits. Combining functionality with a style-conscious approach is likely to ensure greater adoption of Automated Apparel.
