Industrial designer and tinkerer Markus Kayser spent the better part of a year building and experimenting with two fantastic devices that harness the sun’s power in some of the world’s harshest climates. The first he calls a Sun Cutter, a low-tech light cutter that uses a large ball lens to focus the sun’s rays onto a surface that’s moved by a cam-guided system. As the surface moves under the magnified light it cuts 2D components like a laser. The project was tested for the first time in August 2010 in the Egyptian desert and Kayser used thin plywood to create the parts for a few pairs of pretty sweet shades. But he didn’t stop there.

Blackbird By Han Wolf Sun In Tortoise Sunglasses

One of three new Han sunglasses for Seattle’s Blackbird. By the way, they’re great. “Blackbird presents our dark and dapper take on classic American shades. The large, semi-transparent tortoise frames are complimented by thick and sturdy, black temple arms. Perfect for everyone’s spring look.” Priced well at $165 and damn good looking.
