Tzukuri sunglasses use iBeacon to make sure you never lose them

Sunglasses can be easily misplaced and we’re sure there are more than a few of us out there who have lost multiple sunglasses in the past. We could have left them in a restaurant, in school, at the office, or they might have fallen behind a table at home, and so on. Replacing sunglasses can be pretty expensive but a company by the name of Tzukuri is planning on making sunglasses replacements less frequent.

So far, the need for Apple’s new iBeacon technology has been debatable. Surely it’s cool for your phone to give you an enhanced experience of any Baseball game when you take a seat, but that can get annoying when unwanted ads kick-in. We’ve seen Apple expand the technology to retail stores and other services, but probably the most genius use for the technology, is in helping you track something that’s valuable. A company called Tzukuri is planning to launch a crowd funding project to build sunglasses that include iBeacon technology to help you track them. These glasses are compatible with Apple’s Made-for-iPhone/iPad/iPod (MFi) program are coming soon.
