Last year, HOYA introduced 'Yuniku,' an incredible eyewear system that scans a consumer's face to create and print a customized frame with a perfect fit. Now, HOYA is teaming up with Hoet Design Studio and Materialise to push the possibilities of this forward-thinking eyewear concept, emphasizing that one-size-fits-all styles no longer work for the majority of people.

The collaborators on Yuniku recently released a concept rendering of how the completed scanner system is to look when it is officially launched. The forward-thinking eyewear system is set to be revealed at Opti, the international tradeshow for optics and design that takes place in Munich, Germany.

An innovation like Yuniku serves as an indicator for the role that 3D printing will play in customized healthcare and fashion of the future.
