These sunnies sync with your phone to alert you when you leave them behind

Women (and men) the world over share a common problem: The inability to hold onto a pair of sunglasses for more than a season. You sit on them, you leave them in a friend’s car, you drop them in the dressing room, you forget them at the beach. You spill teh ais on them at the mamak. Have no fear, Tzukuri is here – and they can solve at least one of those problems.

Tzukuri has created solar-powered technology that they’ve embedded in their (very stylish) sunglasses, which will sync up to your phone and alert you when you’ve left your sunnies behind. If you find yourself at distances of more than 5m from your Tzukuri sunglasses, your phone will buzz you – and the app intelligently turns itself off when you’re at home or in the office. And conversely, the app can also recognise when you’ve left your phone behind, and will let out an extra-loud alert. The integrated solar cell means it will never run out of battery, and the app doesn’t even need to be running in the background to work.

The sunglasses are due for release later in the year at an introductory price of $349. You’ll never lose sight of your sunnies again.
