Retro-cool sunglasses put pixels on your face
Startup Protos, which specializes in 3D-printed eyeglasses, makes Lego-looking shades a fashionable accessory.
Fortunately, the glasses don't crumble easily like those Lego sets my friends would accidentally step on.
The San Francisco-based startup, which formed in August of last year, specializes in 3D-printed eyewear. If you scoff at the price of the Lego-inspired shades, some lesser-priced 3D-printed options by Protos (with more conventional designs) start at $180. Am I the only one who sees this as the calm before the storm of 3D-printed fashion accessories?
In related news, Protos plans to launch custom-made eyewear created using the individual's facial measurements, thanks once again to the magic of 3D printing. I hope Protos continues the trend of geek-inspired glasses, because aspiring Gordan Freemans everywhere need their fix.
