What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Juic-e, 2 smart glasses designs

Juic-e is a project proposed by 3 partners, Jean, Sébastien and Jean-Paul, based in Lyon,France. We have combined our talents to create the world’s first real intelligent sunglasses, able to adapt the lens colour automatically and electronically to the surrounding luminosity. They do this without needing a battery and in less than one second! Our first model, the Spic••E T, is now available in 2 versions. 

Sporting style or urban lines, which Spic••E T is right for you?
Sporting style or urban lines, which Spic••E T is right for you?

Juic-e, a unique invention!

It is the technology’s performance that is unique. In just 0.8 seconds, the screen changes from dark to clear or from clear to dark. It simply cannot be compared with a standard photochromic lens, which takes more than 30 seconds to darken and many minutes to change back from dark to clear.  

It is also insensitive to temperature; regardless of how hot or cold it is, performance remains the same. Finally, our system is water-tight and needs no batteries, making its use exactly the same as that of a traditional pair of sunglasses. Spic-e T is just much more intelligent.

Spic••E T, glasses for sport, but not only 

Cyclists, runners, motorcyclists, racing drivers, golfers, etc. The technical merits of Spic••E T in terms of light weight and perfect fit fulfil the needs of even the most demanding sportsmen and women. The Urban model is also adapted to the general public, ensuring exceptional comfort and constant visibility in spite of variations in the level of luminosity.

Technical characteristics 

 

  • Electrochromic screen / no battery
  • Perfect fit thanks to an exclusive tip
  • Visual field optimised for user requirements
  • Extremely light weight
  • Enhanced contrasts
  • Adjustable at the nose
  • Robust, ergonomic frames
  • UV protection, UV 400 certified
  • Transformation from a category 1 to a category 3 colour in less than one second
  • 1-year product warranty (a further 1-year warranty extension if you sign up for the newsletter on www.juic-e.fr)

Why we need you  

We need to talk to people who believe in our project and are prepared to invest financially to make this technology available to everyone, throughout the world. 

With the money raised, we will set up the facilities required to start manufacturing the frames and the specific mask, and to launch production of our first stock. Spic••E T is the first product of our adventure, but we are already working on other product categories and variations. 

For the cycling community, we aim to revolutionise the market for protective accessories, creating an ecosystem of solutions to ensure greater pleasure along with a higher level of safety for cyclists, and more generally in the field of alternative mobility.

Juic-e, 2 modèles de lunettes de soleil intelligentes  

Juic-e est un projet porté par 3 associés, Jean, Sébastien et Jean-Paul, basés à Lyon en France. Nous avons mis nos talents en commun pour créer les premières vraies paires de lunettes de soleil intelligentes capables d'adapter automatiquement et électroniquement la teinte des verres à la luminosité. 

Et tout ça sans batterie, et en moins d'une seconde ! Nous déclinons aujourd'hui notre premier modèle, la Spic••E T, en 2 versions.

Style sportif ou ligne urbaine, quelle Spic••E T est faite pour vous ?
Style sportif ou ligne urbaine, quelle Spic••E T est faite pour vous ?

Juic-e, c'est une invention unique !  

La performance de sa technologie est unique. En 0,8 seconde l’écran passe du sombre au clair ou du clair au sombre, c’est incomparablement meilleur qu’un verre photochromique standard qui aura besoin de plus de 30 secondes pour passer du clair au sombre, et surtout de longues minutes pour passer du sombre au clair.  

De même, il n’est pas sensible à la température : quelle que soit celle-ci, les performances sont identiques. Enfin, notre système étant étanche et sans batterie, c’est l’assurance d’un usage identique à une paire de lunettes de soleil standard. La Spic-e T est juste beaucoup plus intelligente.

Spic••E T, des lunettes pour sportifs, mais pas seulement  

Cyclistes, runners, motards, pilotes, golfeurs... Les spécificités techniques de la Spic••E T en termes de légèreté et de maintien permettent de répondre aux besoin des sportifs les plus exigeants. Le modèle Urban convient également au grand public et assure au porteur un confort exceptionnel en maintenant une visibilité constante malgré les variations de luminosité.  

Les caractéristiques techniques

 

 


  • Masque électrochromique / zéro batterie
  • Maintien parfait grâce à un embout exclusif
  • Champ de vision optimisé pour les besoins de l’utilisateur
  • Extrême légèreté
  • Augmentation des contrastes
  • Ajustable au niveau du nez
  • Monture robuste et ergonomique
  • Protection aux ultraviolets certifié UV 400
  • Passage d'une teinte de catégorie 1 à 3 en moins d'une seconde
  • Produit garanti 1 an - extension de garantie d’un an supplémentaire en cas d’inscription à la newsletter sur www.juic-e.fr 

Pour en savoir plus sur les possibilités de la Spic••E T, n'hésitez pas à consulter la foire aux questions ou à nous envoyer un message

Pourquoi nous avons besoin de vous  

Nous avons besoin de parler à des gens qui croient en notre projet, et qui sont prêt à s'investir financièrement pour nous permettre de proposer cette nouvelle technologie pour tous, dans tous les pays. Avec les fonds récoltés, nous comptons lancer la production des outillages nécessaires à la mise en production de la monture et du masque spécifique, et lancer la production du premier stock.  

Spic••E T est le premier produit de notre aventure, et nous travaillons déjà à d'autres catégories de produits et déclinaisons. 
Dans le domaine du vélo, nous ambitionnons de révolutionner le marché des accessoires de protection, en apportant un écosystème de solutions pour prendre plus de plaisir, tout en étant plus en sécurité dans la pratique du vélo, et plus généralement de la mobilité alternative.

Risks and challenges

Juic-e has innovation in its genes and firmly oriented towards innovation of use. We want our technology to be simple and transparent for the user. Spic-e T must be as simple to use as a traditional pair of sunglasses. No extra weight, no connections, no interactions... they must work automatically. What is simple for the user is not necessarily so for the design team, and several years’ research, a global patent, and countless versions have preceded the version presented today: battery-free, electrochromic glasses.

This product is a global innovation on this market. The chip has been industrialised and all that remains is to launch the manufacture and production of the screen and frames that will house it. To ensure real visual comfort, we wanted a spherical screen, not the cylindrical screen proposed by our competitors (a folded LCD screen with a multitude of parasite reflections on the lens), which, again, is a world first. We are confident in our ability to produce this solution, which works perfectly in our laboratories, in large quantities.

Like any innovation of size, we may come across difficulties, but we will do our utmost to overcome them in order to keep our promises to our contributors.

_________________________________________________________

Juic-e a dans ses gènes l'innovation et nous sommes résolument tournés vers l'innovation d'usage. Nous souhaitons notre technologie simple et transparente pour l'utiliteur. La Spic-e T doit être aussi simple à utiliser qu'une paire de lunettes de soleil classique. Pas de charge ni de branchement, pas d'interactions, tout doit fonctionner automatiquement.

Ce qui est simple pour l'utilisateur ne l'est pas pour les concepteurs, et ce sont plusieurs années de recherche, un brevet mondial, et beaucoup d'iterations qui nous ont permis d'être face à vous aujourd'hui, avec cette solution de lunettes electrochrome sans aucune batterie. C'est une première mondiale sur le marché. La puce est industrialisée, et il nous reste encore à mettre en outillage et production l'écran et la monture qui vont l'intégrer.

Afin d'offrir une véritable confort visuel, nous souhaitons l'écran sphérique, et non cylindrique comme les solutions concurrentes (une feuille LCD pliée avec beaucoup de réflexions parasites à l'arrivée du verre), ce qui est là encore une première mondiale. Nous sommes très confiants dans notre capacité à pouvoir produire en nombre cette solution qui fonctionne parfaitement dans nos laboratoires. Comme toute innovation d'ampleur, nous pouvons rencontrer des difficultés, et nous mettrons tout en œuvre pour les surmonter le cas échéant, afin de tenir nos engagements vis à vis de nos contributeurs.
