    Just going to drop some images of the latest prototype. I will discuss this in more detail in the next episode of "Don't Ask When". The painted ones below were originally meant for Earl D. and Kyle L. but due to a minor wiring issue we're gonna keep these and send them out an improvement. The eyewear you see below are latest iteration and serve as more of a fitment test. The black piece that looks like it holding the lenses is actually a frame cover. The next iteration will have this piece be brought in closer to he actual frame front (this will reduce visual mass). The temples are pretty much set design-wise, we are very pleased with how these came out. We are going to make them a little longer so they aren't as tight on the ears. These samples represent content that was custom designed by the LAFORGE team in California (our previous prototypes were a combination of exiting eyewear, custom components, and some off-the-shelf stuff). The frames are laser cut stainless steel (production will probably be laser cut titanium). Everything that is painted black was 3D printed (production will initially be injection molded plastic and later down the road some parts will be made from acetate). With exception to the laser cut, 3D printed parts, and the PCB, this was handbuilt. The lenses were hand cast & hand cut, this was hand painted, hand wired, and the frames were hand formed (shaped). These took a bit longer to assemble than I would have liked and future version will feature some hand welds to simplify assembly. LMK your thoughts. Thanks for the support thus far!

    is it possible to use single lens not as a current product line but as a inexpensive way to get to future costumers, for my invention I need single lens that displays icons I come today across your glass, it will work fine without internet inside glasses ( much cheaper) wired to pocket device ( small computer with long life battery) But technically I have no idea if your lens work as mono display

    The other options are too square but I always find a way to lose a lens with the half frame glasses (the frame that only holds in the lens on top with fishing line).
