    3D Printing Company Protos The Next Big Thing in Design & Fashion


    3D printing is all the rage. Now a silicon valley startup is providing custom fitting eyewear and big headlines. The company Protos Eyewear is based out of San Francisco, California and is the first company to create custom fitting eyewear based on the metrics of ones face based off of 3D printing technology.


    With plans to expand around the world with great innovation, along with ready, willing, and able buyers in Europe the future is bright.


    Custom fitting eyewear has been done but never successfully. Forbes article detailed about eyewear and the benefits as well as the drawbacks for those who have tried.


    Of course this all came pre 3D printing and pre Protos Eyewear and thus the ability to move further and faster thanks to technology is once again triumphing and disrupting yet another marketplace.


    One day Protos' grandeur idea is to have applications for you to custom fit right from your desktop, phone, or tablet. From there you pick out the Protos 3D printed frame and can either go right to the store to pick it up or you can have it delivered in the mail to you.


    Either way you come out happy and delighted that you are getting something strictly customized to your liking and to your face.


    Thanks to 3D printing this will all soon be possible. Silicon valley continues to lead the way of the future with bright minds and bright ideas. Luckily we will have custom fitted sunglasses to protect us!
