Lightweight and durable Monte Cool glasses lets have interchangeable arms.

There is now a more modern and more flexible way to match your eyewear with your mood or outfit. Self-crowdfunding project Monte Cool has come up with sunglasses with patent pending magnetic hinges that allow you to mix and match different-colored frame and temple arm to create your own designs.

The sunglasses have polarized lenses and are made of scratch-resistant anodized aluminum, which make them more lightweight and more durable than the plastic types.  The magnetic hinge technology, which the company calls Mag Connect, allows you to swap out temple arms any time. You can simply align and snap the temple arm in place. The magnetic hinge is made from neodymium magnets, a strong type of magnet, so you won't have to worry about your sunglasses falling apart on your face.
