CORE77: "Become one of the first lucky nu-ravers to get your hands on a pair of sweet new specs for the summer."
Hello everyone! Thanks for checking out Spectracles, your newest pair of sunglasses OR diffraction glasses! You can pre-order a pair by pledging $25 or more (click the green button on the right). We're keeping prices below retail for Kickstarter backers.
Spectracles are glasses with two sets of lenses. The front lenses flip up like the DeLorean (or Lamborghini) with just a flick of the finger. (Spectracles are patent-pending.)
What you see in the video and style shots are prototypes. To take Spectracles to the next level, we need your help.
If we reach our goal, we'll invest in an injection mold, which will allow us to put Spectracles in your hand by June. Your Spectracles will feature lasercut lenses, and flex hinges for an ultra-comfortable fit. Here are the three standard models.
For a little bit more, you can opt for custom lenses.
UPDATE: we've added 3D red / blue lenses!
Just pick a frame: yellow, turquoise, or brown, and a lens from the grid, and we'll install them for you. You can visualize the options at coolbeams.com. UPDATE: we've added the white / turquoise frame from the cover photo!
Also, note that all of our diffraction glasses are made with double-diffraction -- much stronger than a typical diffraction lens.
We'll send you a survey once the glasses are ready, for you to tell us which scheme you want. Thanks for helping us get Spectracles off the ground, and hit us up anytime with comments or questions: firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the kickstarter ends, you'll be able to keep up with us at coolbeams.com or at facebook.com/coolbeams.
