Where Google failed in putting a computer on your face, the innovative technology company North — with startup funding from Amazon — picked up the pieces to create something far more refined. North’s Focals are Augmented Reality eyeglasses with a display only you can see and operate from the included ring.
A pair of Focals look just like normal eyeglasses, yet they enhance your vision in more ways than one. Relying on a light that filters through a holographic lens, these eyeglasses showcase a display appearing at arm’s length. They come with a paired ring dubbed the Loop featuring a small four-directional joystick, allowing you to click through texts, navigation directions, and Slack messages. These groundbreaking eyeglasses also feature Amazon’s Alexa so you can play music, hear the news, check the weather, and control your smart home. Each pair comes with a case with a convenient built-in battery, juicing up your eyeglasses while protecting them so you can stay on top of your to-do list. You can reserve a pair now.
