Sunglasses That Text You If You Lose Them

Always misplacing your sunglasses? Spend every other weekend down the shops picking up a new £10 pair? Then you need the Bluetooth sunnies that text you if you lose them.

Eyewear company Tzukuri has created a pair of shades designed to ping you a message if you misplace them. Yes, really.

The glasses contain Bluetooth technology which connects to your phone. By simply turning on Bluetooth and downloading the corresponding app, you're connected.

So how does it work? Well, you'll start to get notifications when you leave your glasses at least 16 feet from your person (well, phone) and they offer you the power to locate said glasses using a map tool. Genius, no?

Well, kind of. We love the idea but what if you lose your phone? Or you leave your sunglasses on a plane? Or the place you decide to keep your sunglasses happens to be 16 feet away from your phone and you have to put up with constant "hey, you've lost me" notifications?

And for $350 a pair, we're not entirely convinced.

If, like us you don't fancy these techno specs, then check out the gallery below to see our pick of the best and most stylish sunnies to buy right now.
