What are pixels? Simply put, pixels are the building blocks of our digital images.  In our technology driven world pixels are everywhere, and the more pixels, the better the image quality.  One could say that pixels are finally getting the credit they deserve since they are showing up on the runway shows and eyewear fashion.

Deal With It Eyewear (2014) goes back to the basics of pixelation with these quirky transparent glasses.  No need to separate the frames from the lens in this design, but do notice the “glare” effect offered in the placement of the opaque pixels.

Just how pixels come together to create a larger image, Stickem In via Cloudfactory  gives you the option of creating your own wearable image design. These fun filled frames demonstrate all the merriment that can be had when retro toy company Ministeck meets 3D printing technology.  The best part about these innovative sunglasses is that even when using only two tones of blocks the possibilities are endless.
