The perfect Combination of Gadget and Gear
Optimize your performance
Light conditions are constantly in flux and your lenses need to keep up. Until now, no glasses could do this. CTRL ONE uses military-grade electronic Tint-on-Demand (e-Tint) technology that can change the tint of your lenses automatically and instantaneously, so you can keep your hands on the handlebar and your eyes on the road.
Protect your vision
CTRL ONE's ballistic, e-Tint lenses will improve your reaction time and protect against flies, rain and rubble. This is paramount for safety in situations where speed and control are essential.
e-Tint Technology: The Optical Revolution
Most sunglasses do not adapt to changing light. Others such as photochromic sunglasses adapt very slowly (several minutes) and are not controllable. The internationally patented electronic Tint-on-Demand (e-Tint) liquid crystal based technology is ultra fast and controllable. This is why the U.S. Army has stated that competition is not applicable in this area.
CTRL Eyewear is specifically established to create the consumer version of innovative eyewear created for the U.S. Special Forces. The company is dedicated to globally launching and selling innovative products powered by AlphaMicron’s e-Tint technology. There is a small team headed by Daf Dubbelman and Indiegogo Campaign Manager Nick Hersevoort (staff number 1).
AlphaMicron is the mother company behind CTRL Eyewear and has a team of over 30 committed staff including 7 PhDs, 5 masters and 5 LC process engineers. CEO Bahman Taheri is also Adjunct Professor of Chemical Physics at Kent State University (Ohio). Bahman has over 70 publications and more than 65 international patents on liquid crystals, optical devices, optics and lasers. He has obtained recognition by amongst others the Thomas Edison Emerging Technology award, Ernst & Young finalist Entrepreneur of the Year award and Crain’s Business 40 under 40.
