LC-Tec Displays AB and SKUGGA Technology AB demonstrate prototypes of the next generation automatically dimmable sunglasses at the AWE exhibition in Santa Clara (USA) on June 1-2. The patent-pending SKUGGA® glasses are based on LC-Tec’s patented and patent-pending PolarView® filter, which enables electrical control of the light transmittance of the lenses.
The PolarView®-ND(14)-F uses liquid crystal (LC) technology; the adjustment from one gray level to another is very fast while the power consumption at the same time is low. Manufacturing on flexible plastic substrates minimizes the weight and allows bending of the filter. LC-Tec is currently preparing for volume manufacturing of the PolarView® filter.
SKUGGA is planning for product launch during 2018. The glasses will then be offered with sensors for self-adjusting light transmittance, have Bluetooth control as well as inductive charging.
