Glasses are strange things these days, simply because they are often worn by people who do not need any help with their vision, they are a fashion accessory! However, now there is a good reason to be wearing a pair of glasses, but only if they happen to be Ion Glasses. The Ion Glasses look like ordinary glasses and they are worn just like ordinary glasses, yet Ion Glasses are much more than just a pair of glasses these are glasses that are connected using Bluetooth 4.0 technology to either a Smartphone or tablet device.
So now not only does the wearer of these Ion Glasses look cool and intelligent, they are able to receive alerts from the Smartphone in their pocket or tablet in their case. These alerts can be notifications of email, sms, calls or social media updates using pre-selected light codes. The LED is on the inside of the arm, so the wearer is only one to see it. The Ion Glasses have a built battery that is charged via a microUSB port, the charge can last up to ten days. There are two remote control buttons and a buzzer for sound only alerts, these are real connected glasses.
You cannot buy Ion Glasses in the stores yet, but when they do become available, they will cost around $129 or £80 a pair. In the mean time, they can be pre-ordered starting at $79 or £50 and that is quite a good saving to think about.
