ANNOUNCEMENT: LUCYD LOUD FAQ

So, you’ve heard about Lucyd LOUD and want to know a bit more. You came to the right place.

  1. Are there visual graphics?
    No, that will be in the separate Lucyd Lens product we are developing for 2019. LOUD will be available much sooner, in August 2018, and cost significantly less, so it will be a good starter AR wearable for many. There is also an incredible amount of utility with just the audio functions, such as being able to call an Uber, or send money with Venmo, using only your voice.
  2. Who will benefit the most from this product?
    In our opinion, anyone who wants to make their life a little easier. LOUD gives a tremendous amount of smartphone functionality while letting you keep your phone in your pocket and your focus on the real world. The biggest value adds are for people who already wear glasses and want to upgrade them with tech features, for people who need handsfree access to navigation and calling, for people who engage in outdoor physical activities such as cycling where sunglasses are needed and traditional earphones are cumbersome, and finally, for those who want discreet audio at school or work that doesn’t interfere with their hearing or appearance. Additional use cases are springing up every day, including potential use as a gaming headset.
  3. When can I get it and for how much?
    We will begin filling orders for LOUD through Lucyd.co starting in the first week of August, and they will arrive only a few days after ordered. The cost varies depending on sunglass and prescription options, but we’re looking at a basic non-Rx pair around $100 shipped.
  4. Does it only come in black?
    For now. By the end of the year, we plan to have a number of designer styles and size options.
  5. Will this interact with the LCD token?
    Lucyd is developing an LCD token wallet app, which will reside on your smartphone or watch and can be accessed via LOUD. When this app is released (hopefully by end of year), you will be able to send and manage LCD tokens from your LOUD. Additionally, we plan to integrate LCD into the Lucyd eShop so you can get benefits and discounts for holding the token, and perhaps even pay for complete pairs in LCD. This app will also come into play with the tokenized AR app store we are developing.
  6. Will this interact with other wearables and IoT devices?
    Similarly, we are developing an app called LINK that enables more fluid connectivity between Lucyd glasses and other devices. One goal of the LINK app to create a highly functional mobile UX that is built on wearables alone, for example enabling you to get most of the functionality of your smartphone with just a smartwatch and LOUD. Another function will be to bridge Lucyd glasses to IoT devices such as smarthome devices, potentially enabling you to control the lights in your smarthome with your glasses.
  7. How is the overall ease of use and sound quality?
    Pretty good! There are a handful of control options on the LOUD and they are very intuitive and easy to master. The sound quality is slightly below standard headphones, but better than your last pair of glasses! And they don’t obstruct your natural hearing, so they are more useful in social situations. The LOUD uses small over-ear speakers and bone conduction to present audio. The microphone is very sensitive and taking calls on it are a breeze.
  8. What is the battery life?
    On a full two hour charge, the Loud will last for about 8 hours of music/call playback. When on in standby, the life is much longer, but it is best to switch off when not in use.
Comfortable, “Oakley-style” form factor.
