Receipt of Notices of Allowance on Smart Safety Eyewear


Tekcapital Plc (AIM: TEK), the UK intellectual property investment group notes that Innovative Eyewear, Inc.

Innovative Eyewear also has announced receipt of notices of allowance on three smart eyewear design patent applications (patent application Nos. 29/806,204, 29/806/207, 29/806/209). Receipt of a Notice of Allowance indicates that claims in the patent applications are patentable, and Innovative Eyewear expects design patents to be issued from these three allowed applications after payment of issue fees. 

The two new patent applications are directed to the Innovative Eyewear's new Lucyd Armor smart safety glasses product, planned for introduction in mid-2024. The new utility patent application is directed to functional aspects of product, whilst the new design patent application is directed to the ornamental design of the product. The Company developed Lucyd Armor to meet the needs of industrial and medical safety glass users.

Innovative Eyewear CEO Harrison Gross said:

"Lucyd Armor smart safety glasses are a unique product and the culmination of rigorous in-house R&D, which we are thrilled to bring to the personal protective equipment market. We believe these products will deliver a cutting-edge experience to safety glass users around the world, making it easier than ever for industrial workers to communicate handsfree in a wide range of environments. We are commencing testing to ensure our smart safety eyewear meets US Occupational Safety and Health Administration Agency's  standards and expect to have the glasses available to consumers in the coming months. In addition to our direct-to-consumer channels such as Amazon and, we look forward to launching Lucyd Armor in hardware and home improvement stores, developing an entirely new vertical for the company."

Safety glasses represent an important segment of both the personal protective equipment and eyewear markets, which is expected to grow to US$4.18bn by 2030[1].  Safety glasses are required equipment for a multitude of occupations, from construction sites and warehouses to operating rooms and research facilities around the globe. By combining the safety features of this class of eyewear with Innovative Eyewear's open-ear communication and AI features, the Company believes the product will make it easier and safer than ever for teams to collaborate in a variety of work environments.
