Sports goggles with removable, tailor-made wind protections. They are manufactured locally using digital technologies.
Our project started with understanding which products may benefit from local production using 3D printing techniques. We found that the current production of frames for eyeglasses is pretty inefficient. According to a study conducted by Eurolens Research, the production of frames for eyeglasses takes on average.
This project dives deeper into understanding how to produce sports glasses sustainably:
Our proposal brings the three points together to build personalised 3D printed sports glasses that perfectly pitch the users’ demand while reducing production impact and consumption. In addition, since we can have glasses that perfectly fit the needs of sportive customers, they may use only one pair of glasses (e.g. for cycling and running) instead of two different pairs. As shown in several research papers, they will be willing to keep them longer since they are personalised.
