OUR TECHNOLOGY

 

The true beauty about SKUGGA Technology is the focus on design and miniaturization in combination with high quality technical features. If you didn’t know better, you would probably believe our smart glasses are just really good looking sunglasses. The truth is that we just hid all the tech very wisely.

SKUGGA Technology works with technology in several areas. We hold patents in both electronics and mechanical design, and we work with partners in the absolute forefront of technology.

THE TINTING TECHNOLOGY

The tint functionality in SKUGGA Eyewear is made possible with sophisticated liquid crystal (LC) technology from the Swedish company LC-Tec. Their electrically controlled switchable filters are highly suitable for use as tint technology. A low voltage applied to the filter defines the amount of light that is passed through it, and the amount of tint can be changed from one level to another within a few milliseconds. Due to the novel flexible LC-filters, SKUGGA Eyewear has curved lenses, corresponding to a base curve up to 4-6.

LC-Tec is today one of the leading suppliers of 3D projection technology for the world-wide cinema industry with over 2 000 installations of the patented and Disney-approved PolarSpeed®/DepthQ® polarization modulator. LC-Tec is a publicly traded company, listed on the NGM Nordic MTF stock exchange market.

“We are always looking for novel applications in which our technology can add value, and the SKUGGA Eyewear project enables us to enter a new exciting field. We look forward to a close collaboration with the talented people at SKUGGA.”
– Dr. Jesper Osterman, Managing Director at LC-Tec

ELECTRONICS & SOFTWARE

The main focus regarding the electronics is to keep everything small and sleek, without compromising on prestanda and power. The temples of the SKUGGA eyewear is only a couple of millimeters thick, but holds powerful electronics and battery pack.

SKUGGA is controlled by the CC2640 from Texas Instruments, a wireless microcontroller targeting Bluetooth Smart applications. The CC2640 contains a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 processor for the SKUGGA control and the Bluetooth Low Energy controller is embedded into ROM and run partly on an ARM Cortex®-M0 processor.

Mechanical Design

Apart from electronics and software, SKUGGA Technology develops specific design functionality, focusing smart eyewear. This partly includes a patented hinge solution. If you are interested to know more about the design possibilities for Your eyewear, please contact us and we will tell you all about it.
