Recent news tell us that the smart devices family will soon welcome a new member, the Meme smartglasses, a pair of common – looking glasses that have the ability to wake us up when they “sense” we are about to fall asleep. This revolutionary device is manufactured by Japanese company JINS and is set to launch in Japan next spring. The good news is that the glasses will cost around $685 and they might actually save our lives, our jobs and even our relationships.
How do the Meme Smartglasses work?
Have you ever experienced the dangers of falling asleep while driving? Did you ever took an accidental nap during a college course or a boring team meeting at the office? And were you ever reproached to have fallen asleep while your partner was about to make a point in the conversation? Well, starting next year, if you want to avoid all these unfortunate occurrences, you may look into the Meme smartglasses. According to the specialists,
the Meme uses eye and motion tracking in order to figure out when you’re tired. Once it knows that you’re a bit sleepy, the Meme will send a notification to your smartphone via a companion app and buzz in your pocket.
Joke aside, the issue of falling asleep while driving is very serious and the Meme might actually be a brilliant way to prevent accidents and even save some lives. One nice aspect regarding the device is that it looks pretty normal and few will know you are wearing a Bluetooth wearable gadget. Some specialists admitted they couldn’t wait for the Meme smartglasses to be imported in the United States, although there is no information regarding this particular subject.
Besides their waking – up skills, the Meme smartglasses also sport some healthy features such as calorie counting and step tracking. The Japanese will be blessed with three different Meme models, varying from traditionally looking glasses to cool sunglasses as well. It may be a coincidence, but it seems that JINS worked hard to make their glasses look as wearable as possible in comparison to the famous Google Glass. Even if the Glass is way more technologically advanced, it can’t elbow you in the stomach every time you doze off, so everybody is waiting for the Meme smartglasses with their arms open.
