ACTON Unveils ACE EYEWEAR with a Hands-Free Camera to Shoot Photos and Videos On-the-Go(December 19, 2017)
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading up to the 2018 International Consumer Electronics Show, ACTON, the leading designer and manufacturer of advanced and innovative electric skateboards, skates and outdoor connected devices, is unveiling ACE Eyewear. With a built-in, hands-free camera, the glasses prioritize style, so users can look fashionable while taking photos and videos that they can instantly stream to their social media pages.

“Tech-enabled sunglasses have so much potential, but haven’t fully taken off yet because they haven’t been designed with style in mind to look like glasses that people actually want to wear,” said Peter Treadway, ACTON’s co-founder and CTO. “Competitors have shown us that it’s not enough to have glasses that can just quickly take a picture or video. We created ACE knowing they had to look cool, in addition to providing users with a high-quality camera with great resolution, long battery life and instant streaming capabilities.”
Perfect for travelers, athletes, concert-goers, bloggers and all types of adventuring-seeking millennials, ACE lets users easily share their unique perspective on day-to-day activities and adventures. Finding your phone and prepping your camera is time consuming and takes you out of the moment, so ACE was designed to capture memories with a single touch of an inconspicuous button to keep users engaged in their surroundings. One long click will turn ACE on and off while one short click captures photos using its 120-degree wide angle lens. Users can double click to start and stop shooting a video, and then simply connect to WiFi to download photos and videos to their phone and easily post on any social media site.
Users can log into the ACTON app to edit photos and videos and manage storage and streaming capabilities. ACE’s battery life lasts up to 10 hours, with constant video recording lasting for more than two hours. ACE connects to mobile devices through Bluetooth to provide users with information on battery power, memory usage and more. It is compatible with the Apple iPhone5 and above, the Samsung Note 3 and above, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and above and most of LG’s HTC phones.
ACTON will also be showcasing its newest electric skateboard, BLINK QU4TRO, at CES. QU4TRO is the only eBoard that boasts four-wheel drive and a four hub motor system for ultimate climbing power. Its advanced regenerative braking allows for a powerful, torquey and smooth riding experience. QU4TRO’s unprecedented engineering, made of aircraft-grade carbon fiber and aluminum, is much stronger than other boards and boasts a range of 22-miles per charge.
Users can pre-order ACE on actonglobal.com for $99. Regular retail price following pre-orders will be $199. Users can also purchase the BLINK QU4TRO for $1,699.
