Dispatch Eyewear - Dispatch eyewear is an alternative to patches and prosthetic eyes custom designed and rapid prototyped from a 3D scan of the wearer.
Dispatch - The options for individuals with damaged or missing eyes mainly consist of eye patches, pads or prosthetics. Instead of mimicry, this project aims to challenge conventional aesthetics and offer a customizable digital solution that is more akin to a fashionable accessory instead of an object associated with disability. The glasses are designed from a 3D scan of the individual and are rapid prototyped.
Dispatch - Because it designed from a 3D scan, the design enables a fit that contours to the individual's face with customizable styling. Whether an individual is not a candidate for a prosthetic eye, doesn't like the look of eye patches, or is tired of the adhesives and disposability of eye pads, this provides an alternative that reflects individual personality and style.
Dispatch - Roughing out the concept on a 3d print with super sculpey. The print can be heated, so it acts as a great support structure when baking the clay.
