We’ve got new eyewear technology and plenty of style inspiration this week. Read on to find out more…

More huge advances in eyewear technology this week. It’s impossible to tell where science will take the industry next. The Royal National Theatre have been trying and testing their new Smart Caption Glasses. The design gives a revolutionary new way for people with hearing loss to watch theatre. The headset is manufactured in partnership with Epson and is slightly heavier than a normal pair of reading glasses but still comfortable to wear throughout an entire show. When wearing the glasses, you will see a transcript of the dialogue and descriptions of the sound from the performance displayed on the lenses of the glasses. Now, people with hearing loss can enjoy theatre to the full. The Royal National Theatre plans to make the glasses available for all of its performances for the 2019 season.

As with anything Gucci, it’s creative, quirky, and glamorous. The vintage inspired styles are already immensely popular. See the men’s pair above and the women’s below for a sneak peak.
