Introducing the sunglasses with adjustable tint control

Imagine being able to adjust the tint on your sunglasses to suit your surroundings. That’s exactly what one company has done with the Skugga Dynamic Eyewear which can adapt to the light around you.

The Skugga Dynamic Eyewear uses an ambient light sensor to automatically set the tint on the lenses.

Users can also adjust the shades with the Skugga companion app to manually set a comfortable tint level via Bluetooth.

Unlike other photochromatic lenses that adjust for to compensate for UV-exposure, the Skugga sunglasses can be adjusted when the brightness of the light is the issue.
