Background is from prescription ski goggles. We have developed this product and were wondering with the need for eye protection for caretakers if it there was a need for a new product for them. In the hack the crisis belgium hackathon we saw that 75% of all glasses wearers are hindered by condensation during their caretake activities. There is thus a clear need for something new!
What it does
Integrated prescription solution for eye protection + online platform for PPE's.
How I built it
Through 3D printing and rapid prototyping.
Challenges I ran into
Finding production capacity for a new product that is also economical to scale. Building a team that can cover all the requirements for a product launch.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The fact that we are bringing together people from very different continents and background to work together on this.
What I learned
That is crucial to ask yourself constantly if there is a real need for your product and how once you have the product you will do a successfull product launch.
What's next for Eye protection for health care workers
Develop a platform to match supply and demand for eye protection in corona times. Where new products like ours but also standard PPE's can be sold.
