LOOK OPTIC: Cool Reading Glasses That Provide Clean Water

LOOK OPTIC reader glasses
Glasses have gone from the accessory of nerds to something so trendy almost everyone wears them. It might have something to do with the fact that staring at screens all day everyday is terrible for our eyes so more people are in of need them and need them at earlier ages. Most companies are realizing that we want stylish, sophisticated frames– except, it seems, the makers of readers. LOOK OPTIC is changing all that by allowing you to look damn cool while reading, plus, they are partners with Charity:Water.

Readers are cheap but as a result fantastically ugly. Still, for people who have trouble seeing small print (thanks, computers) but who don’t need a full prescription, this was the only option. LOOK OPTIC burst onto the scene with quality, stylish readers designed by industry veterans from places like Oliver Peoples.

LOOK OPTIC’s pairs are a bit more than you’d pay at your drugstore ($68/pair) but they last longer: made of lightweight materials that will never leave a dent in your nose and Italian springs that adjust to your handsome face. These are glasses you’ll be excited to wear and careful about keeping. Interestingly, they look nothing like traditional, end-of-your-nose readers. These are traditional designs with a sophisticated, modern twist. Choose from colors like yellow, grey, or red or opt for black or tortoise shell. Plus, if you find you do need a prescription at some point (again, thank you computers), you can just pop out the lens and use your LOOK OPTIC frames for the prescription lenses from your doctor. They offer a generous one-year warranty and if you should ever lose the felt case they come in, LOOK OPTIC will send you a new one for just the cost of shipping!

The company doesn’t just stop at making you look awesome while you read: they give 1% of their profits to Charity:Water, the non-profit started by former photojournalist Scott Harrison. Harrison saw firsthand the easily preventable, fatal results of contaminated water while working in Liberia. “I have known Scott [Harrison] for years,” LOOK OPTIC founder Andrew Leary says. 

“And have been to Africa with him a few years ago. …Knowing unsafe water is the number one cause of preventable blindness, it was an easy choice. We are donating $10 per sale for the first 1,000 online sales, as well as 1% of all profits. Charity: water is very unique as 100% of all donations go towards projects (they raise the admin separately) and projects can be tracked using Google Earth.”

It’s easy to see LOOK OPTIC is a game changing company.

The Sound Caddy Bluetooth Speaker Looks Just Like a Golf Club
sound caddy

Golf is a normally a quiet sport of concentration and precision, but what about those times you just want to unwind, relax, and play a few holes with your buddies? In those moments, it'd be nice to have some music scoring the fun. Then again, hauling around a portable speaker can be annoying, especially one with enough oomph to really get the most out of your music, so it needs to not only give you good sound, but integrate into your golf game as well -- provided your course of choice allows for such a thing in the first place. In that case, the Sound Caddy wireless speaker, may be exactly the thing you're looking for.

The Sound Caddy is a Bluetooth speaker that resembles a driver club, so it can seamlessly fit in with the rest of the clubs in your golf bag. However, instead of the usual wood or metal that club heads are made of, the Sound Caddy is built with rubberized plastic. The body is rated IPX5 waterproof and weather proof, making it safe to take on the course. Rain, sprinklers, or the accidental dunk in a pond wouldn't hurt it. However, Sound Caddy stresses that the speaker is not a golf club, despite its durability, and should not be used as such, no matter how much you want to play "Enter Sandman" while hitting a 250 yard drive.
