Glasses Hide Health-Tracking Sensors In Their Stylish Frames
JINS MEME can track the wearer's mental and physical conditions.
At first glance, these stylish glasses produced by Tokyo-based eyewear designer JINS seem like an ordinary pair of glasses. However, the JINS MEME glasses offer more than style and comfort: these frames have been specifically designed to monitor your health.
The MEME is the product of a collaboration between industry designers and academics with a particular focus on tiredness. The MEME operates by tracking the correlation between eye-strain and fatigue, and offers up-to-date data on the wearer’s mental and physical tiredness by linking the MEME to a smartphone feed. Users can then keep track of their daily energy levels, ideally taking a break when their MEME notes their tiredness, or avoid dangerous situations, such as driving while exhausted, thanks to the MEME’s monitoring system.
