Ampere’s Dusk sunglasses have built-in audio and adjustable tint

|

Dusk sunglasses are a new and interesting flavor of smart glasses that have popped up in the tech space. Smart glasses have been an ongoing tech project for many companies, including Google. Google Glass attempted to put a screen and computer on your face, but since Glass’s epic failure, projects like Dusk sunglasses have taken their place.

Dusk sunglasses take a different approach, which isn’t entirely new either. Ampere, the company responsible for Dusk sunglasses, has integrated an audio experience with the ability to change the tint of the sunglasses. The company uses Electrochromic lenses and app connectivity to achieve the ability to change the shade on the lenses.
