SunSafe Drive is an attachment that fits on your sunglasses to prevent lateral sun incidence on the eyes. Due to its planar surface design, it can also serve as a publicity platform. The design has two hooks in the non-visible side which allow the piece to sit on the sunglasses leg. By sliding the piece back and forth the length of the leg, the user can adjust to the desired position.
This is a joint project with my dad. From many years of driving, he has struggled with a surprising common problem. At certain times of the day, the sun comes from a diagonal angle and hits you directly in the eyes. He tried different sunglasses designs but none of them would manage to completely block the sun and allow for comfortable driving. One day he had enough and sketched out his conception. I used my experience on design to 3D print a few prototypes and test the idea. Shortly after proving the functionality and concept, we got a patent and started contacting different companies.
While this is a simple solution, the innovation is on including advertising information on the front face of this piece so that different companies could distribute this as a marketing platform. Designs can be printed on the face or even the shape of the piece can be altered to meet the company's specifications. The models can be mass-manufactured by plastic injection molding or cardboard stamping.
This project is on-going, if you would like to learn more please contact me directly.
