A new Kickstarter project named i90 Tablet Glasses is a pair of glasses optimised for tablet and smartphone usage, allowing users to see down without having to tilt their head forward into an uncomfortable position. The idea behind the i90 glasses is to make it comfortable to use your tablet and smartphones, anytime, anywhere.

The developers note that since the head-forward ‘tech-neck’ position causes pain and even injury in worst cases, they came up with i90 glasses, which enable you to enjoy your tablet and smartphone for hours with your head up straight, looking forward. Just put these on like you would a normal pair of glasses, and you’re good to go. You’re sightline will be refracted 90 degrees downward, hence the name ‘i90’.

Here’s why the developers of i90 think you need a pair of these tablet / smartphone glasses:

“Neck and back pain caused by the head-forward posture we all seem to find ourselves in when we use electronics (often called “TECH-NECK” or “FACEBOOK POSTURE”) is becoming a public health epidemic. Holding your head forward adds severe stress to the spine, which can lead to pain in the neck and upper back, and other problems such as headaches and even respiratory difficulties. Use i90 Tablet Glasses when you’re using a tablet, smartphone or e-reader while you commute by train, when you’re in bed, on long (or short) flights, or in your car seat while your parents are talking amongst themselves in the front seat.”

The glasses have also been designed to be wide at the front to accommodate most reading glasses. So far, the project has raised nearly $8,000 of its $45,000 goal with 35 days still to go. If you’d like to make a pledge ($75 or more), simply head over to their Kickstarter page.

    please guys for the sake of all of our sanity. tell me you’re joking about actually promoting this…

  • It’s a great idea but at the same time…it’s kind of funny. You guys decide whether this is worthy or not.

    fail. fail. fail.

    perhaps it’s lost on them that we’ve gone through centuries looking down at other objects (ie. books) and a product like this has never gained any traction. Asking someone to carry around silly specs that make you look ridiculous is a non starter for 99.9% of the market.

    It’s not a bad idea, but it’s ugly as hell.
