CES 2016: Velodyne Lidar
Well, at CES2016 I found the company, that will make all those who need reading glasses, very happy. I sat down with Darren Lancaster, co-founder at ThinOptics, to discuss their line of reading glasses.
First thing I noticed was how thin they were and then how flexible but the best thing of all is that they can fit in a wallet or on the back of your smart phone and then there is the quality of their optics which are better than most readers I have seen, and I have seen a lot of them.
More of ThinOptics below, and don’t forget to keep listening to Craig Peterson’s Tech Talk.
