London-based eyewear company Kite releases a selection of 3D-printed glasses that have been skillfully tailored to fit the person's face. Dubbed 'KiteONE,' the collection is done in collaboration with design agency Layer. Through this project, the two businesses are able to create a personalized silhouette for each consumer, ensuring the perfect fit for their face both functionally and aesthetically.

The service 3D scans the face of the wearer and prints the eyewear to "fit the size and proportions of any face." The measurements include the "distance between pupils, head and nose width, and ear positioning." The head is visualized in an app and the product is fitted live on-screen.

Kite's 3D-printed glasses are an example of high-level personalization within the industry — something we have been seeing a frequently with the onset of various technological advancements.
