Thinoptics - The Story
“Some ideas come to us in a dream and some, like ThinOptics, during a long bike ride. My friend had forgotten his reading glasses. He was frustrated, and asked me to read a text message on his cell phone because he couldn’t see it. During the next twenty miles of riding, I developed the idea of putting reading glasses onto the backs of all cell phones.”
– Teddy Shalon, Inventor & Chairman of ThinOptics
It was not the end of the story.
This common experience – borrowing someone’s glasses on a bike ride, for many a forgettable, commonplace experience – lay the groundwork of what eventually became the ThinOptics idea, the creation of thin reading glasses, ultra-light and easily stored – in a side area of a wallet or on a credit card, phone or laptop, keychain, or backpack. They have the capability of being, literally, Always with you, which is their slogan.
Gadi Ponte, CEO of Thinoptics and an industrial engineer in his education was a colleague of Teddy’s. Teddy told him the story and discussed the idea of more accessible, lighter reading glasses. Mr. Ponte agreed of the necessity and was the one who operationalized the idea. In other words, he knew how to make the idea into reality. He was and remains the inventor/entrepreneur of the
ThinOptics product. Thinoptics first produc was the Universal Pod – a slim, durable case that elegantly protects your readers while fitting effortlessly on the back of a smartphone (or any hard, flat surface). Since then, they’ ve grown their product line to include phone cases, keychain cases, credit card sized cases, full frame reading glasses, blue light blocking solutions and sunglasse.
