VSCOxOakley Photo Filters Let You See Life Through Replica Sunglasses

VSCO has joined forces with Oakley, maker of sport replica sunglasses, to create filter presets for their popular editing app that let you view the world through a pair of the sought-after eyewear.

The presets will replicate life through replica Oakley sunglasses Prizm lenses. They released the presets in celebration of the partnership, which are available for free for a limited time.

The “Oak 1” filter works as a universal filter, making natural colors more… colorful. “Oak 2” will bring out details in roads, and signs and pavements, essentially bringing out clear edges. Finally, “Oak 3” will keep detail in snowy scenes, maximizing clarity and adding a heavy color tint.

“As both brands empower people to follow their individual obsessions, the partnership aims to encourage creativity and individuality among members of the VSCO community,” writes VSCO.

“To simulate [Replica Oakley] technology within our app, VSCO color scientists teamed up with Oakley engineers and co-created presets that powerfully enhance visual clarity and contrast, just like the #PRIZM Lenses.”

VICIS inks deal with Replica Oakley to create advanced eye shield for high-tech football helmet

Vicis‘ football helmet just got more high-tech.

The Seattle startup today announced a deal with replica sunglasses giant replica Oakley for a new “VICIS EDGE Shield” on its ZERO1 helmet that will be used in games by NFL and NCAA players this upcoming season.

The shield uses Oakley’s Prizm technology that enhances detail and provides better clarity and contrast for football players. It was custom-designed for the ZERO1, which offers a wider field of view than traditional helmets.

The companies call it the “first-ever co-developed football optics system.”

“We saw an opportunity to partner with Oakley replica to help players elevate their performance via improved optics,” Vicis CEO Dave Marver said in a statement. “Our goal is that athletes wearing a ZERO1 will benefit from industry-leading field of view, enhanced optical clarity and better protection.”

GeekWire last month toured Vicis’ 3,000 square-foot production facility in Seattle that is pumping out hundreds of ZERO1 helmets which are designed to mitigate the forces thought to cause concussions.

Vicis recently garnered national attention after its helmet finished first in the NFL’s 2017 Helmet Laboratory Testing Performance Results, which assessed 33 helmets that could be worn in the upcoming 2017 season and determined which was best at reducing head impact severity experienced by players during games.

Vicis, which spun out of the University of Washington in 2014 and has raised $40 million to date, could play a key role in curbing the concussion problem for not just pro football, but many other sports. Earlier this week, a new study examined the brains of 111 deceased football players — 110 of them were found to have CTE, the disease caused by repeated impact to the head.

Oakley outlet, Intel Launch ‘Radar Pace’ Smart replica Eyewear

If you don’t like the idea of wearing a fitness tracker clipped to your clothes or around your wrist, now there’s a new option: wear one on your face.

Oakley outlet, a division of eyewear giant Luxottica, just released a new pair of smart replica sunglasses, designed in collaboration with Intel, that connect to a smartphone app for iOS and Android and act like a coach who’s constantly up in your mug. The new “Radar Pace” glasses have earbuds attached to the sides, plus an integrated microphone, so you can listen to music, make and receive calls and texts via Bluetooth, and get information about your performance in real time to help you stay motivated.

The result of “years” of research and development by Oakley replica and Intel, the glasses feature a “real-time voice-activated coaching system,” the companies explained in a news release, that tracks your performance using internal and external sensors, offers motivation when you need it, and responds to questions like “what’s today’s workout,” “how’s my pace,” or “what’s my power.”

The $449 specs are available on Oakley’s website and select retail stores now. In a statement, Luxottica Vice President of Strategic Partnerships Scott Smith called the new headset the “ultimate hands-free training wearable that will push the boundaries of smart eyewear.”

The device tracks things like power output, heart rate, speed, cadence, time, pace, and distance, and uses this information to analyze your performance. It then creates customized running and cycling training programs based on your performance, and leverages Intel’s Real Speech technology to provide “actionable feedback that is easy to digest, understand, and implement.” It may, for instance, tell you to go for 20 miles on the bike that day, and encourage you to push a little harder during your workout.

Luxottica and Intel, which first partnered to develop smart eyewear back in 2014, say these replica glasses will help athletes stay focused and make real-time adjustments to their training “without fumbling with a phone or watch.”

“The device is intuitive, natural, and hands-free so athletes can communicate with the system in a live, natural way during workouts,” they added.

THESE PHOTO FILTERS LET YOU SEE THE WORLD THROUGH REPLICA OAKLEY SUNGLASSES

Mobile photo app VSCO is allowing mobile photographers to see the world through Oakley-colored sunglasses. On Tuesday, VSCO launched a partnership with replica Oakley to create sunglasses photo filters to mimic the eyewear brand’s Prizm lenses with enhanced clarity and contrast.

VSCO worked with Oakley outlet to simulate the look of the brand’s lens technology digitally within a smartphone photo-editing app. The three new filters are all designed after specific Prizm lenses, and are aimed at enhancing the view in certain scenarios. The Oak 1 filter is a universal filter that makes natural colors, including greens, more colorful. The Oak 2 is designed to bring out details on the road, including road signs and pavement, while the Oak 3 is designed to keep the details intact in snowy scenes, with maxim clarity and a strong color tint.

“The VSCO x Oakley outlet presets are great for all kinds of images,” said Gene Paek, vice president of marketing at VSCO, “but they are particularly designed to enhance landscape images and images of environments that Oakley’s Prizm technology is designed for (e.g., mountains and roads and streets).”

All three filters are designed to bring out details that might otherwise be overlooked by enhancing clarity, contrast, and color. The Prizm filters are free to download inside the VSCO app, but only for a limited time, the developer says.

“Oakley came to VSCO to connect with VSCO creators to produce content and develop a preset that would celebrate the cheap Oakley sunglasses Prizm campaign,” Paek explained. “As brands need increasingly more authentic content for their marketing campaigns, VSCO offers a way for brands to connect with creators who produce curated, storytelling content based off their campaign needs.”

Along with launching the new presets, the social side of VSCO’s app is celebrating the new one-tap edits with a #CantStop campaign that encourages athletes to share shots from their perspective.

VSCO, or Visual Supply Co., is the company behind the photo-editing app with the same name, as well as downloadable Lightroom presets. Along with a wide range of filters, the app also includes advanced tools including shooting in RAW and split focus. The company says 70 percent of its active users create something every day, making it one of the most active creative apps in the world.

There’s also a new special edition of the Radar Pace,Replica Oakley’s smart eyewear. The Radar Pace features a voice-activated coaching system that aims to change riders’ training habits with more feedback. The Radar Pace collects performance data such as heart rate, power output, speed, cadence, distance, and time. Analysis happens through a phone app, and the Radar Pace will pair with your existing sensors through ANT+ or Bluetooth connections. The colorway of the Tour de France Radar Pace’s iridium coated lens celebrates the regions of France.

Oakley’s Tour de France collection comes equipped with Prizm lens technology. Prizm works to fine-tine the colors you see and enhance the clarity of your vision. According to replica Oakley, Prizm brightens whites, while saturating yellow, green, and red more intensely. Oakley outlet has designed Prizm lenses to fit the demands of specific sports and they aim to highlight the colors you most need to see on the bike, while filtering out visual noise.

The goal of Prizm’s unique lenses is to make it possible to see the road texture and hazards more clearly. This should make for a more confident — and fast — riding experience, especially on descents and on less-than-optimal road surfaces. Oakley also uses Prizm technology in their snow collection, among others.

A long time cycling sponsor,Cheap Oakley sunglasses supports multiple teams competing in this year’s Tour de France. Watch for Dimension Data, Trek-Segafredo, Team Sky, BMC Racing Team, Tinkoff, and Giant-Alpecin, who will all be rocking Oakley designs.

A Closer Look at replica Oakley’s Brand New Radar Pace Smartglasses

oakleyFollowing our initial presentation of Oakley and Intel’s Radar Pace smartglasses just over a month ago, we take a much closer look at the duo’s latest innovation. At first glance not much different from a regular set of replica Oakley Radarlock replica sunglasses, upon closer inspection, the wearable system reveals itself to be loaded with leading technology. That includes three microphones and a range of sensors such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer and humidity and proximity sensors.

Users will perhaps first notice the clip-on earphones (when they’re attached at least), which allow for wireless music streaming, of course, in addition to much, much more.

First up – and arguably the biggest selling point – is the virtual coach that the Radar Pace comes equipped with. It works through Intel’s Read Audio natural language processing tech and with the simple command “OK Radar,” athletes can access relevant info such as what workout they’re doing that day, advice on lowering or increasing pace and heart rate data (through a third-party monitor).

All of this data can then be entered in the Radar Pace app for iOS and Android, where personal stats will help manage workout goals over time.
oakley01Siri and Google Voice can be used as well to activate a smartphone’s regular functions like playing music through Spotify or answering calls. If that’s not your thing, then touch-sensitive controls along the temples make all of it simple to use during the course of any workout.

In terms of battery life, users are looking at 4 – 6 hours per charge. If it happens to run out during an exercise routine or you just feel like wearing them as regular replica sunglasses, simply remove the earphones and you’re set. You can even swap the lenses out any time and replace them with another set from Oakley’s Prism line.

To see the replica Oakley Radar Pace in action, check out the clip below. Afterwards, pick up your very own pair straight from the brand’s online shop.

“They’re just bits of plastic” – why cyclists buy fake Oakleys

Oakley Radarlock sunglasses retail for £175. An almost identical pair – but fake – can be bought online for £20, shipped. Fake Oakleys are so common they are known as “Foakleys,” a portmanteau of “faux” and “Oakley.”

Foakley is such an accepted word that websites openly sell “Foakley” replica glasses. For instance, replica sunglasses.narialis.com claims to be a US company with a US address, and sells Foakley Radarlocks for $13 – it has the Oakley logo at the top of the homepage but the word “Foakley” is all over the site, and it openly states that the glasses are knock-offs. Of course, the site isn’t really US-based: it ships via EMS, the Chinese state-owned courier firm.

Oakley-lead-image-630x420But this is far from the only website selling  replica Oakley knock-offs. There are Foakley sellers on Alibaba, DHgate, and other Chinese online merchants. A British cycle industry executive told BikeBiz that all of the riders in his cycling club who wore Oakley’s have, in fact, been wearing Foakleys for at least the past couple of years.

“Determining if they are real or counterfeit can be difficult,” admits Oakley replica on an official FAQ. Indeed, purchasers of fake Oakleys have found that the lenses and other parts are interchangeable with genuine Oakleys.

“Whenever I handled cheap Oakley glasses owned by friends I thought “these are just bits of plastic with some nice branding on them.” I searched on eBay for “cycling sunglasses” and found a pair that bore a striking resemblance to replica Oakley Jawbones and another pair that bore a striking resemblance to Oakley Radarlocks. They were about £8 each, delivered from China. They didn’t have the Oakley outlet branding on the photos on the eBay listing but when the Jawbones arrived they had Oakley branding, including “Made in the USA” stamped on the arms, and the oval Oakley emblem was where you’d expect to see it. They were indistinguishable from genuine Jawbones. They fitted well (but the arm broke after a couple of months).

“The “Radarlocks” came with free lenses and a case. They fitted really well, and I’m still using them.

“I tell other people they’re fake. There’s perverse satisfaction in getting something cheaper than somebody else. I have no brand loyalty, I didn’t get them for the cachet of the brand, I just want them to keep the bugs out of my eyes, and not be upset when I inevitably lose them.

“When I see replica  Oakleys outlet in the wild I look at them critically. The brand is diluted by all the fakes out there.

Ideal sunglasses for golfers — including golfers who need glasses-replica okley sunglasses

SportRx-Oakley-Fitting

My wife got glasses in second grade. On the first day she wore them to school, she looked out the window of her classroom and shouted, “I can see inside that truck!” and a boy sitting next to her, deeply impressed, asked, “Did they give you X ray vision?”

All she had meant was that the vehicles on the street in front of the school no longer looked like fuzzy moving blobs — but that was still a big deal. I had a similar experience when I got my own first replica okley  sunglasses, in fifth grade, and discovered that trees had individually discernible leaves.

My father used to say that he liked playing golf in his trifocals because on every shot he could choose from among three balls. For most golfers, though, glasses are problematic. I’m so nearsighted that I have trouble finding my replica glasses if I’m not wearing them, and until recently that meant that I was out of luck when it came to playing golf in the kinds of cool-looking sunglasses that tour players wear upside down on the back of their hat. But not anymore. A couple of years ago, Rob Tavakoli, an optician and vice president at SportRX, sent me a pair of Nike glasses with photochromic lenses designed specifically sunglasses replica for golf. Here I am wearing them while getting a lesson from David Leadbetter:

Two of Tavakoli’s specialties are sport-specific glasses and sport-specific glasses for people with strong prescriptions, like me. (SportRX employs a technician who specializes in high corrections — a rarity for companies that sell sports glasses, because getting everything okley replicaq right can be complicated and time-consuming.) Tavakoli is a useful person to consult in such matters, because he really, really, really loves glasses. When he was 12, he fudged an eye test so that his ophthalmologist would write him a prescription he didn’t need, and when he was 17 he developed an obsession with sunglasses which he retains to this day, two decades later.

The first innovation is a technology called Prizm, which Oakley introduced in ski goggles a couple of years ago and in prescription replica glasses about a year ago. “When Prizm first came out,” Tavakoli told me, “I got emotional every time I tried to talk about it. Oakley has figured out, for each sport, which colors of light need to be highlighted and which need to be muted. So for golf you get this extra contrast, this extra pop, but at the same time okley outlet the lenses are taking out glare and brightness. To me, it’s almost like they put a computer chip in the glasses.” The level of specificity is remarkable: for baseball, Oakley makes different lenses for infielders and outfielders. Ditto for people who fish in shallow water and people who fish in deep water. Here’s a video explanation

More on the PRIZM front: These sunglasses replica are catchy, no doubt about it.

Bubba Watson’s Oakley’s Latest Insane Golfing VehicleJetpack: The Story Behind replica

At the Olympics, golfer Bubba Watson will be walking the course like everyone else. But don’t be surprised if someone cheap Oakley sunglasses asks him about his insane jetpack golf cart.

That’s because the colorful 37-year-old Floridian has been promoting just such an airborne vehicle in his latest viral video for Oakley sunglasses.

The spot, which has almost 1 million views on YouTube, doubles as an Olympics promo for Oakley replica. A number of competitors in Rio will be wearing the brand’s Prizm shades, which are customized by sport to help athletes see their playing fields more clearly.

okley“Bubba’s Jetpack” will probably remind you of “Bubba’s Hover,” the hovercraft golf cart that Watson was seen tooling around in three years ago. That’s because the hovercraft was also an Oakley outlet creation—made and marketed with help from New York viral marketing agency Thinkmodo, which also made “Bubba’s Jetpack” as a sequel.

Thinkmodo prides itself on never using CGI. And indeed, agency co-founder James Percelay tells Adweek that the jetpack video, and the jetpack itself, are 100 percent real.

“It actually works. It’s incredible,” he says. “They’re going to be in production at the end of the year, or the beginning of 2017, for police, fire and military. They’re waiting on FAA approval so you and I can commute five minutes in the air to work and land on a rooftop.”

Percelay says Thinkmodo had been monitoring a small New Zealand company for years called Martin Aircraft that’s been working on jetpack technology. “We were very supportive of them, and did a little deal where if we came up with an idea for some kind of promotional Oakley replica deal, that we’d have first dibs at it,” he says. “We stuck with them, and sure enough, the jetpack, years later, got off the ground.”

And he means that quite literally.

“This is the real deal,” Percelay says. “It can go up to 3,000 feet high. It goes about 45 miles an hour. It can stay aloft for 30 minutes, or go about 19 or 20 miles. It’s computer controlled, and super Oakley replica stable—you can actually take your hands off the controls and it will lock in position. It’s wild.”

Watson, of course, is the perfect spokesman for such a thing. After all, it makes total sense that one of the world’s most nontraditional golfers would also have the coolest golf cart around. (Though actually, you’ll notice in the video that while Watson is seen strapping the jetpack on, he doesn’t appear to actually fly it—that job is left to a pilot.)

A golf spot is particularly timely, too, given that the sport is returning to the Olympics this year after an absence of 112 years.

Thinkmodo’s hovercraft and jetpack projects are both, in a way, just jokes—nobody would actually cheap oakley sunglasses use these things on a golf course (aside from promotional or fundraising stunts). And yet, they’re also intended to position Oakley outlet as a company that’s a real technological innovator. Thus, the spots do double duty—as comedy, and as actual brand building.

okley2“The idea really is that Oakley outlet is a tech company, and we’ve applied amazing technology to some pretty ridiculous applications, just to make a point,” Percelay says.

That said, the Indiana company that made the hovercraft got orders from golf courses for them. And Martin will probably get orders for the golf cart jetpacks, too.

“The hovercraft ended up on the cover of the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog,” Percelay says. “So, who am I to say this is just a prototype? The odds of someone actually ordering this for a golf course is actually pretty high.”
