Exolens

AR sport glasses that allow the user to wear them like traditional AR glasses, and also use them while they’re resting on the dock.

Exolens are AR sport glasses that allow the user to wear them like traditional AR glasses, and also use them while they’re resting on the dock. Through my research on fitness apps with VR/AR headsets, I noticed that people don’t always want to put on the headset at home. Sometimes they just want to do the workout without wearing a device. The insight inspired me to design a product that encourages people to do the work out whether they want to have a more immersive experience or a quick exercise.

Most AR glasses are not designed for sport. 
They easily get pretty gross and slippery after exercising.

People don’t always want to put on the headset at home especially when they are working out.

 Sometimes they just want to use the big screen and enjoy the workout.

 

Easy detach 

The headband is made out of stretchable fabric and velcro so it's easy to detach after used.

Use them right after

getting the invite
 


When your friend send an invite, you can just go the the TV and start playing without putting the glasses on

When designing the dock for the glasses, it was challenging to not make it look like a human face. After several trials, I decided to work on the nose part. It was made wider and flatter with a metallic finish, it also turned out to feel more stable with the wider nose stand while putting the glasses on the dock. 

The Challenge

Avoid making the glasses dock looks like a human face.

AR model fitting test 

I created AR prototypes to test on real person before making the physical model

Prototyping 

I used magnets on the 3D printed model to fit the glasses with the dock, and asked friends to do the fitting test so it fits both women and men.
