Digioptix Smart Glasses

Do you know how much easier it is to capture moments in your life without having to pull out a phone or camera every 5 seconds? Well that’s exactly what smart glasses allow us to do. In particular, Digioptix smart glasses are a stylish pair of glasses that allows you to live in the moment and capture it at the same time without missing a beat. We’ll go into more detail on how it works, the style, and how it can benefit you.

What can they do?

Digitopix smart glasses packs a variety of features. Here’s a quick list view below.

  • Capture pictures and videos
  • bluetooth connection for IOS & Android devices
  • make phone calls
  • listen to music
  • voice navigated GPS
  • can be used as usb device and webcam
  • gesture control technology

So basically everything you do on your phone, you can do it hands free with digioptix smart glasses. And when I say hands free, I mean literally hands free. To control your music, take a picture, or start a video, it just requires the movement of your hand with a specific gesture. Don’t worry, In the next section I’ll show you exactly how it works.

In addition to allowing you to connect with your phone through bluetooth, you’ll be able to navigate GPS with voice control through your smart glasses. And when you’re not using them to capture your life, it can be used as an usb or a webcam.

How to use them

The smart glasses are controlled with gestures. A specific gesture will tell the glasses which function to do. This is a short list of the hand gestures and which function it controls.

  • Take pics – swipe backward from front to back in front of the sensor
  • Record Videos – Swipe forward from back to front to begin and end recording. Swipe front to back to pause the recording
  • Make a Call – swipe starting away then towards the smart gesture sensor. Repeat the same movement to hang up the phone

So yes, you can do all of those things without ever having to make physical contact with the glasses. That’s what makes it so convenient when it is time to use them. You won’t have to worry about the hassle of having to stop what you’re doing just to pull your phone out; a simple hand movement will do the trick. Below is a short video showing how to use them

Style Choices

Digioptix has a style for every occasion. You can get them as sunglasses, polarized, or casual depending on your want and needs. The frames are interchangeable so feel free to get multiple styles.

These glasses have a very modern and stylish look. They aren’t bulky and don’t look like you’re carrying a mini camera on your face as compared to some other brands. Below is a picture of one of its style of sunglasses. They have a lightweight look and can complement wardrobes of different taste.

  1. The Digioptix Smart Glasses sound like an awesome idea! Super convenient, instant and from a natural viewpoint when it comes to capturing video, for example.

    They sound like some sort of James Bond gadget with all the things they can do, like Bluetooth, GPS, phone calls, plus the video and camera function.

    Just a question: What is “gesture control technology”?

    • Yes these glasses do fit the James Bond movies lol. It has the look and everything. That’s what I like most about them, the casual look they have.

      Simply put, gesture control is when you do not have to make physical contact with something to control it. It is controlled by movement. With these glasses, you don’t have to touch it at all to use the camera and calling features. The technology in the glasses recognizes the hand movements and does the function that is programmed for that gesture.

  2. Hi, great blog.

    Hey, these glasses look great!

    Could I have my own lenses put in there?

    I would love to be able to film while driving. Sometimes you go over a hill and you see this most magnificent sight and it would be fantastic to just be able to say to the glasses, “Start filming!”, “Stop filming” and then have that clip that you could then later put on Facebook. Maybe soon you could put it on Facebook at the same time while you still driving.

    The swiping sounds a bit more complicated – but I suppose you could get used to it.

    I shall keep an eye on these. (Pun intended!)

    • Hi there! 

      The glasses are customizable,  so yes you would be able to use your own lenses. I think that the hand gestures may take some time getting accustomed to, but once you get the hang of it it’ll become second nature.

      I agree that voice control and automatic facebook uploads would be great features to add. Hopefully that can be implemented sometime in the near future.

      Thanks for reading.

  3. Wow! So interesting stuff this. I have actually tried to use a similar technology for research purposes. To be specific, for eye-gaze detection.
    This is certainly a ‘next’ step in photography. But, I feel there might be some ethical concerns. For example, taking pictures in not so suitable locations. What is your take on that?

    • You’ve made a really good point. I think with technology there are always going to be ethical concerns. I feel that no matter how good a product is someone can find a way to misuse it. 

      So I agree that the glasses can be used unethically, but only the consumer that misuses it is to blame. 

      Thanks for reading!

  4. When I first started reading this article, I thought, “YES, FINALLY!” because since I was little, I’ve always thought this would be the absolute coolest gadget. In the video it shows the guy breaking out into dance and the Digioptix recording it. That is the perfect use for them, because how many times in life do we say, “Man, I wish I had gotten that on video,”? These would be worth the money for that use alone.

    I also see how they could be really useful for bloggers or YouTubers that want to film a tutorial from their perspective. The hand gestures seem pretty easy to learn, so that would be a plus. The charging necklace though? It looks a little scary. I think I’d just take the glasses off for a couple hours to charge them.

    • Hi Alyssa,

      Yes a lot of amazing moments could be captured with these glasses. I like that you can capture the moment while still enjoying it.  Using them to film tutorials sounds like  great idea. The necklace does seems a little bulky but I can see how it is also convenient too.

      Thanks for reading!

  5. Well I have to say that I would love to have a pair of these. How much easier would it be, you would have so much less to carry.

    I liked the fact that you can get them with a prescription and that there are so many different styles. My only query was about the music, does is play out loud or is it like using earphones.

    I am glad I came across this post.

    • Hey Cheryl,

      There is a port on the glasses where you can plug headphones in. I think you’ll be able to play it out loud as well if you don’t put in the head phones.

      Thanks for reading!

  6. Thanks for an interesting review on the Digioptix smart glasses. I’ve heard of this technology before but didn’t know it was available and the price is lower than I expected. Does $159 include the prescription? Have you personally tried these smart glasses or any of the competing glasses? I must admit that it looked kinda goofy for the guy to take pictures with a backward hand motion but it is arguably less conspicuous, and more convenient, than taking out your phone.

    • Hey Justin,

      I can only assume that the price includes the prescription. I’m not completely.  I haven’t tried these glasses or any of its competitors but I have done research on the product.

      I agree the hand movements would have to take some getting used to, But it definitely is more convenient when you’re not able to grab your phone.

      Thanks for reading!

  7. Hi: I appreciate your well written and well organized post, but I think, as a great grandmother, these glasses are not something I would be able to get used to…but thank you for great reading anyway.

  8. I watched the video along with your article and I am truly impressed! At $159 they are also very affordable!

    I can see these as a great replacement to the “go pro” cameras.  Instead of wearing the camera on a helmet , just wear the glasses!  These are really cool!  The only down side I see it the waving of the hands, there should be some kind of voice command like a cell phone, or is there some kind of function like that that I missed?

    • I agree that voice commands would be a great, but as for now the features are controlled by gestures. Maybe that is something that they could focus on implementing in the future.

      Thanks for reading!

  9. Wow, these digioptix glass are cool.   My first thought was what one of the other commenters mentioned.   They reminded me of a James Bond gadget.  And, then I thought about the security/privacy concerns that someone else mentioned.   But, as you alluded to, I suppose the same privacy issues already exist with our smart phones.   To me, the action camera is the best feature along with the charging necklace.   

    By any chance have you had the chance to try out a pair yourself?   I am wondering if the extra weight on the one side of the glasses would make them a little bit uncomfortable to wear any length of time.  

    • I have not tried a pair for myself yet, so I’m not exactly sure how the extra weight affects how it feels. But I have done my research and compared to other brands of smart glasses these seem to look less bulky.

      Thanks for reading!

  10. Those smart glasses are freaking awesome! I thought that a smart watch was awesome but this… this is another level. I can not believe I can you use them without my hands. 

    Isn’t that annoying? Just using your eyes…

    Thanks for your answer beforehand. I will get a pair of them anyway. I think they will worth the money

  11. These Digioptix Smart Glasses certainly look great and with all the function they do provide it is a must have for a busy life, which we all do have.

    I do wonder if they are also available as “cover” glasses over prescription glasses. I have to wear glasses myself and I have sun glasses which I can wear over my own glasses.

    Can I get these smart glasses as “cover” glasses or are they also available as prescription glasses?

    My other question is, and this came up watching the video, can it malfunction when I do too many different hand moves?

    You know, sometimes we do “accidentally” a hand motion and can turn on a function we just don’t wont right now. Would that be possible to happen?

    Thank you for the clarification.

    • Hey Sylvia,

      These are all great questions. The digioptix glasses can be used as cover glasses, or you can get them as prescription glasses.

       As for your other question, I’m not sure what would happen if someone used too many hand motions at one time. Hopefully it has been tested for that possibility. As a guess, maybe it does nothing at all until a clear hand gesture is understood. I will try to research this and will come back to give a more definite answer if I can find one.

      Thanks for reading!

  12. I am in love with these glasses! 

    My only problem, is that I wear a specific type of prescription glasses. Is there a way to get them specially made, and how would that affect the price range I’m looking at? I would absolutely love to wear them, but it won’t help much, if I can’t see where I’m going. 

    Other than that, I love the different styles I can get. There’s definitely one to suite every preference. 

    • Yes the glasses can be customized with your prescription in the lenses. I’m not sure if that has any affect on the price though.

      And I love the styles too. The casual look they have is what caught my attention.

      Thanks for reading!

  13. Hi there,

    I am impressed! I feel like in the James Bond film:) I would never think this is going to happen and I am so glad it did!

    This is the kind of glasses I would like for the whole family and me, in fact:) I do have some questions, though. Ok, my first one is. Is it available in sunglasses? Is it possible to customize the lenses with my own prescriptions? And my last question. Is the Dibioptix release radiation? When I think about it, it’s a bit scary.

    Thank you!

    • Yes, the digioptix glasses can come as sunglasses and your prescription can be added into the lenses.  As far as releasing radiation, I’m not so sure about that. I don’t see anything about it on their website. That is a great question though and I will look further into that.

      Thanks for reading!

  14. Wow, I never heard of these glasses before. Amazing technology behind it. Not only for convenience aspects these are impressive, these glasses also would solve the issues of text`n`driving which is a great contribution to the safety in traffic. 

    How long have these glasses been around? And is Digioptix the company that is behind the technology? This will surely be the biggest upcoming smart device. Thanks for an interesting article.

  15. These glasses are really super cool.  I really like the sunglasses as I don’t use normal glasses all of the time just when I need them for reading things.  These really are smart glasses.  I love the way that they are so easy to use and always available, right there in front of you without having to get your phone for pics and video.  It is great that there is also a smart necklace to charge your glasses.  You would not want to realize that you are out of battery when there is a perfect photo op.

    I had never heard of these smart glasses they are really amazing!
