Dragon Eyeglasses with Wearable Tech

A WORKING INNOVATION

Level™ is the first wearable product to seamlessly integrate health-tracking technology into an optical frame with the ultimate goal of personalizing and enriching traditional medical records with context from daily living.

Level was created by VSP's bi-coastal innovation lab THE SHOP.  From the front, the device appears to be a pair well crafted, designer eyewear from Marchon. However, upon closer inspection users will find a circuit board—containing a gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, Bluetooth radio, and battery—embedded in the left arm, or “temple,” of the glasses. The electronics are thin and light. Data derived from the device automatically syncs with a smartphone app, which tabulates steps, calories burned, activity time, and distance traveled.
