“Instaglasses” coming soon
A new concept in eyewear inspired by the very famous app
Due to reach us soon is the Instaglasses concept, sunglasses with an integrated Instagram.
For anyone not in the know, Instagram is a free app that enables users to take photos, apply filters and share them on numerous social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Tumblr, Flickr, and Posterous. The style in unmistakable and it is very easy to use. The eyewear has a 5MPX camera in the front and two buttons on the side: one for taking a photo and the other for applying the filters.
To "switch on" the eyewear, just press the "Insta" key on the front between the two lenses. But there's more: it will also have Wi-Fi + 4G connection and a 2GB memory.
The project is the brainchild of visual communication designer Markus Gerke who presented the concept with these words: "Many people use Instagram. They all love the effects and they all love to take photos and share them with friends. Wouldn't it be fantastic if you could capture moments of everyday life or an entire life with very beautiful filters? The design concept will give you an idea of what the sunglasses will look like. The eyewear is activated by pressing "Insta" and allows you to choose from different filters. Are you enjoying a special moment? Take a photo with your eyewear and upload it to Instagram. Life is good, with filters it will be even better".
