Artful Eyewear Apps

The JINS Paint App Helps Users Design Custom Eyewear

— March 2, 2015 — Tech
The JINS Paint app has been introduced as a way for consumers to design custom eyewear exactly to their own specifications, saving them from having to dish out hundreds of dollars for a frame that boasts a brand name.

The JINS Paint app for iOS and Android features stamps and paint sets that can be added to the arms of glasses before ordering. Beyond these basics, consumers can really make a pair of eyeglasses their own by uploading a photo or creating files in Illustrator and Photoshop. This is a perfect way to make sure these wearable accessories match what's already in your closet. For inspiration, the custom eyewear app also includes a gallery of other user-created designs. When ordering in Japan, delivery of the custom eyeglasses is totally free.
Trend Themes
1. Customization Through Apps - The trend for creating apps that offer custom design features to consumers will continue growing, allowing businesses to offer unique products without additional manufacturing costs.
2. Augmented Reality in Eyewear - As augmented reality (AR) technology becomes more advanced and accessible, integrating it with eyewear designs will offer a new level of convenience and entertainment to customers.
3. Crowdsourcing Design Inspiration - Encouraging and showcasing customer-designed eyewear on social media or in-app will not only offer creative input but also foster a sense of community among consumers.
Industry Implications
1. Eyewear Retail - Eyewear companies will continue to invest in innovative apps and technology to provide a more personalized shopping experience for consumers.
2. Mobile App Development - The demand for customizable apps will create opportunities for mobile app developers to work with companies within the eyewear industry.
3. Augmented Reality Technology - The integration of AR technology in eyewear has the potential to disrupt and enhance traditional retail experiences.
