Eyewear that sees your everyday
Built into our classic and versatile Wellington frame are three types of sensors – our three-point
electrooculography sensors, the accelerometer and gyroscope sensors – which detect changes in your mind and body.
From the moment you rise, to the minute you go to bed at night,
these remarkable glasses have the ability to look deep within you, just like a life-long companion.
For instance, JINS MEME can ensure your driving safety by monitoring your level of drowsiness.

What is electrooculography sensing?
The six-axis (accelerometer and gyroscope) sensors track your body movements

A NEW PLATFORM OF EVERYDAY BEAUTY
Satoshi WADA (SWDesign) spearheaded the JINS MEME product design. Watch the video to find out how he created a cutting-edge design that seamlessly becomes part of our everyday lifestyle.
I’m Satoshi Wada. I am a car designer.
I am a product designer, but I mostly work in car design. To tell the truth, this was my first time designing eyewear.
I think people initially expected that the car designer Satoshi Wada would come up with some crazy design. But at the first meeting, I remember saying that I wanted to create just a standard pair of glasses.
Doing otherwise would damage what JINS had worked so hard to build. If you go to a JINS store, you will see people of all ages choosing glasses, and you can really tell that they are truly enjoying the process.
JINS’ glasses are products that support everyday life, so customers generally don’t visit a JINS store in search of a very specific design.
Based on the JINS’ product lineup, I felt the key was a good standard design; a dependable, basic design that is highly adapted to everyday life.
Although we aimed to create a standard design, we approached the project with a world-class eye for detail, craftsmanship, and innovation.
My goal was a beauty in utility. I feel that electrooculography is a wonderful technology with the potential to add new dimensions to our everyday lives. I wanted to create functional style. How could I create synergy between the merits of the device and the glasses?
Then I thought, in essence, glasses are already a complete design, without any embedded devices. In this day and age, we also have to think about mass production. So I decided that the best solution would be to create a platform; a base upon which you could build a wide variety of glasses.
Once we make this the basic platform, we can attach different lenses – in this case an aviator sunglass lens – to create a variety of looks and styles. This means we don’t have to redesign the device every time the shape of the lens changes. We can base variety on the platform.
The proportions of the lens will create cuteness, beauty, or other impressions, changing the look.
To successfully merge the glasses with the device and market them as one combined product, the most logical solution was to create a basic platform upon which various kinds of glasses could be based. So the overriding design concept is a Platform.
This is what I wanted to propose to JINS.
