We need a pair for the PH kitty, @d0b0 πŸ˜‰
@rrhoover we gotta get the kitty sized then 😺
Here all day answering questions about our new product Focals! πŸ‘“
@d0b0 are these actually real? Looks like something out of a science-fiction movie.
@socialsuite definitely real
@d0b0 can they also record video? That would be icing on the cake.
@socialsuite No camera on these bad boys β›”πŸ“·
@d0b0 will there be an option to have the display on the left lens? As a person who's partially blind (in my right eye), I rely on my left eye for pretty much everything. In the past, I've seen AR products with a reliance on the right eye's peripheral vision... I have a feeling I'm not the only person with a fault in that part of my eye-sight and would love if one of the customization options was to choose which lens is the "smart" one.
Also psst... we're hiring, hit me up if working on smart glasses gets you excited beyond belief πŸ˜‰
@d0b0 congrats on the launch! Looks super slick. How is By North affiliated with Thalmic, if at all?
@alirtariq It's the same company - we rebranded from Thalmic Labs to North this morning πŸš€
@d0b0 woah, big day all round! Congrats and here's to new beginnings!
@alirtariq πŸ‘ thanks!
@matdak25 sent you a DM :)
Feels like this can deliver on the promise of smart watches to provide less disruptive notifications. Despite it being less conspicuous, I still find it disruptive when people I'm meeting with start interacting with their watches. Is there an easy to engage silent mode?
@krisabraun We have a really simple and easy to access do-not-disturb function for just this reason πŸ”•
