Edison Nation, Inc. a full-service product development company, has entered the multi-billion dollar eyewear market with Smarter Specs, the world’s first patented glasses with concave lenses.
Smarter Specs were invented by Todd Huschka and submitted to Edison Nation through their proprietary innovation search engine, which helps independent innovators commercialize their ideas and inventions. To-date, the Edison Nation platform has received 100,000 idea submissions, resulting in over $250 million in retail sales. Edison Nation is a true full-service product development platform that utilizes a capital-lite, high-reward process that accelerates product development timelines and significantly reduces research and development expenses.
Patented as Huschka Vision, Smarter Specs are the world’s first patented glasses with concave lenses, designed for both essential function and style. Smarter Specs were first introduced to the U.S. market via a recent appearance on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family. Based on the initial success, Edison Nation plans to launch three other styles of the Smarter Spec glasses in the first quarter of 2019.
Smarter Specs’ concave lens shape is functional and stylish, offering the ability to wear them up higher on the nose bridge, and therefore, allowing consumers to look over them without having to tilt their head down, easing neck strain.
“The launch of Smarter Specs marks our first entrance into the massive eyewear market, which is expected to grow to a staggering $177 billion-dollar industry by 2023,” said Chris Ferguson, CEO of Edison Nation, Inc. “As a product development company, it is imperative for us to remain ahead of industry trends and strategically select products that show market demand. Smarter Specs is a great example of Edison Nation’s ability to identify innovative products via our proprietary platform and bring them to market at light speed. Given the strong initial demand, we plan to leverage the success of Smarter Specs and introduce three additional styles in the first quarter of 2019.”
