Epiphany Eyewear’s frames are built using a high-quality versatile state-of-the-art material often referred to as "plastic titanium" in the eyewear industry.
This beautiful organic material is a thermo-polymer that is soft yet strong; it is resistant to breaking, keeps its shape under extreme conditions, doesn't fade from sun exposure and yet is still incredibly comfortable and light-weight, up to 20% lighter than other eyewear materials. Epiphany Eyewear’s incredible light weight and flexibile frames make for a perfect pair of glasses you will wear every day without worrying about durability. The frames’ superior material is high-temperature resistant, to retain its shape, and its resistance to fading from UV exposure ensures a long-lasting color and finish.
Your frames also feature the highest quality spring-loaded hinges, to fit comfortably on the vast majority of various face shapes and sizes. The spring-loaded hinges add a level of worry-free security, comfortably hugging your face with a soft contour above your ears to always fit well and stay with you even through life's most adventurous and exciting moments.
Slide your right finger across the smooth soft-touch side until you feel the tactile Epiphany Eyewear button, and gently press against your temple to turn the computer on. Capture your experience in HD video, knowing that you're wearing one of the highest quality designer frames in the world.
Epiphany Eyewear’s glasses are “smart” because inside of each is a mobile computer, up to 32GB of solid state storage, plus a sophisticated HD digital video camera with beautiful wide-angle optics, and a simple and intuitive one-button tactile "on" control -- all of this comes cloud connected & bundled with cross-platform web software designed to help keep you connected to your family, friends and followers across the globe.
Only a few years ago, fitting this much computing power in such a compact form was unimaginable. Epiphany Eyewear contains technology that in the past would have required three separate devices: a clunky digital camcorder, a laptop computer and an external hard drive. Our glasses contain all of this, while integrating easily with included web, video streaming and cloud file sharing software services, as well as all of the popular social networks.
To start a point-of-view video, simply press the “easy-to-feel” tactile Epiphany Eyewear logo that is on the right temple. The computer inside the glasses turns on and boots up. A tiny blue indicator light will blink in your peripheral vision, letting you know the glasses are on and are currently recording. To finish recording, simply press the button once more, and the indicator light will disappear.
It may seem incredible that so much computing technology can fit inside of the temple of Epiphany Eyewear’s stylish frames -- but this is just the beginning. The glasses can record and stream HD video and audio, and can be configured to contain an impressive amount of onboard solid-state storage (up to 32GB). The glasses also contain a powerful and long-lasting rechargeable lithium ion battery similar in structure to the batteries used in modern electric vehicles. To recharge your glasses, and to transfer data, simply plug in using the special tiny built in micro-USB plug found on the bottom of the right side of the glasses temple.
Plug your glasses into your laptop, desktop or a compatible Epiphany-qualified mobile device to view and share the your videos from the YouGen.TV application and sync your files to cloud while rapid-charging faster than real time.
As Mark Zuckerberg recently stated, “The very definition of what a computer is, and what our relationship with it should be, hasn't been set for the majority of the world… and when it is, I think a lot of that definition is going to be around people first. So we're about to see the most empowered generation of people in history.” Epiphany Eyewear is proud to be part of that empowerment.
APPS & DEVELOPERS
Epiphany Eyewear software has been built with the ability to integrate apps from a compatible mobile device, or any laptop or desktop computer. Apps must be authorized by the user, and can then access recorded videos, post new edits of videos, receive live frames from a livestream, and display the app's embedded UI on a dedicated app section. The enabling capabilities of the API, together with developers’ creativity, create bold possibilities for new interactions and experiences using point-of-view video with computer vision, and more. The YouGen API, code named "SunRise" is currently in closed Alpha and is coming soon to be open for 3rd party developers.
Anyone can apply to be an app developer for Epiphany Eyewear by emailing us at email@example.com today. We're still accepting applications for developers that want to write apps for our glasses and one of the qualified mobile devices.
Epiphany Eyewear’s on-board HD camera features advanced optics technology with an unprecedented quality and wide-angle field of view -- wider than any smartphone camera on the market. These unique optics are able to record and stream video of your world as you actually experience it. When people watch the first-person point-of-view videos from the Epiphany glasses, they feel “as if they were there” – thanks to the superior lens optics contained in the HD camera inside of the glasses.
Epiphany Eyewear’s eyeglass optics are also designed to protect your eyes better than any other pair of sunglasses on the market. They contain multiple layers of clarity-enhancing protective coatings to block glare and harmful rays, allowing only safe wavelengths of light into your eyes for the clearest possible vision. The lenses’ shatter resistance and remarkably light weight let you take your pair with you on the go. Your eyes are protected from all wavelengths of harmful UV rays, and your lenses’ multiple layers of AR (anti-reflective) coatings reduce unwanted reflections.
A lens-fitting groove on the inside of the glasses lets your optometrist install prescription lenses, and meets the lens-mounting standards used in the eyewear industry by professional lens-cutting labs so that you can have your corrective prescription lenses installed with ease. With the built in video and cloud technology, plus the option to fit prescription lenses, Epiphany Eyewear is designed to be the only pair of real-world life-style glasses you’ll ever need.

There are apps that can work with the glasses allowing you to record point of view videos of your life's moments, livestream video to the web, share your recorded first-person point of view experiences, and utilize your glasses as file storage with online cloud sync.

- Can Epiphany Eyewear glasses act as a stand-alone storage device?

- How long have you been working on Epiphany Eyewear?
Started working on company's product/business plan in early 2011, and filed our first patent in May 2011. Unofficially started the company (Vergence Labs) in Sept 2011. Officially became an incorporated Deleware C Corp. on the mark of 2012.
- What is your founding story?
The founders Erick Miller and Jon Rodriguez both started working on Epiphany’s technology while still in school, Erick for an MBA at UCLA and NUS, and Jon for a Computer Science thesis at Stanford University. Erick set out to build a company that would create the first fully functional computer inside of glasses, with a software platform for reality. Jon had an epiphany that they could make a volumetric display that perfectly matches reality. They met through social media - a tweet from Hacker News, to be precise - and decided to combine their visions and create Epiphany Eyewear together.
- Can Epiphany Eyewear have prescription lenses?
Yes, your optometrist can install any prescription lens. The frames can accommodate almost any prescription lens.
- How are you different from Google Glass?
Glass appears to have a few more “electronics features” and we have more “eyewear features”.
Epiphany Eyewear is designed with plastic titanium frame material to be both comfortable and durable. Overall, Epiphany has an emphasis on design, fit, & feel, and works very hard to blend nicely with your own personal sense of style.
Glass: Consumer electronics for your face.
Epiphany: Great designer glasses, that also contain a computer and some great new powerful features.
- Was Google Glass public when you started?
No! At the time, not even the X Lab was public and Sergey wasn't even leading it yet.
- Is there more than one way to control the glasses?
There is one button. We firmly believe that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. You can control some aspects of video streaming, sharing and photos from the app.
- Can you see things inside the lenses of the glasses?
The base-model glasses were specifically designed to be easy and stylish, and to not block your view with obstructive data; but the computer inside the glasses does show you a little blinking LED heads-up-display indicator light in your lens. We are currently exploring the user experience for an elegant display feature-set and developing a detachable smart-display add-on called "Glance" for the display of smart-phone and connected web data.
- What resolution of video is recorded?
- Do the glasses also record audio?
- How many hours does the storage last?
8GB model: Approximately 2 hours. 16GB model: About 4 hours. 32GB model: About 8 full hours.
- How many hours does the battery last?
Depending on usage, the power can last all day when combined with a tablet and frequently uploading data. When turned on and recording straight, it lasts between 1 - 2 hours, depending on usage.
- How do you address privacy concerns? Can other people tell if you are recording?
There is a subtle blinking indicator light. We are branding our product as glasses that have a computer inside and beautiful wide-angle HD camera optics. We expect people to record POV experiences at their own discretion and to respect others' privacy just as they would with any other camera.
- What information do you see when you wear the glasses?
You see indicator lights in your right-side peripheral vision on the glasses lense that gives you the status of the onboard computer: While the glasses are recording, the light is blinking blue. While the glasses are live streaming, the light is blinking purple.
- How will I look in the glasses?
You will look great. No matter your head size, the sturdy spring hinges will keep the glasses comfortably fit to your face. Combined with an adjustable silicon nose piece for all different bridge shapes, and a unique aesthetic take on a timeless classic design, Epiphany Eyewear looks great on everyone of all shapes and sizes.
