Glass Story– These Sungasses really block screens around you they came in to existence by Scott Blew, once he was standing in line at a food truck in Los Angeles he caught the glare of Fox News on a television out of the corner of his eye. This is ridiculous, he thought. He couldn’t even ignore the deluge of the news, or the presence of screens, on a journey outdoors to get lunch. You can put your phone away but if some other screen pops up around you, it may draw your attention.

Blew wondered if the same might work on a pair of glasses, to block the screens that seemed to be everywhere. He than ordered a sample from company that made the Casper screen-blocking film. Then he replaced the film from the sample in a pair of cheap sunglasses. astonishingly, it worked: Blew could look through the lenses and see everything—except for screens, which turned black.
Now with a lot of team work he launched the glasses on Kickstarter this week, it block the wavelengths of light that comes from LED and LCD screens. when you put them on the TVs, billboards blinking ahead seem to go blank. Within three days of launch, the project had surpassed its funding goal of $25,000.

That’s what the glasses are for: continuing the conversation about how much screen time is enough. Stay tuned with Alloftop for more!
