Ray-Ban Graphene Eyewear

Considered a "miracle material" in the nanotechnology world, graphene is set to revolutionize a growing number of industries due to its exceptionally strong characteristics. Graphene is said to be one of the strongest known materials in the world and is hundreds of times stronger than steel. So why not put that into a piece of eyewear? Ray-Ban is taking advantage of the material in a new collection of frames that mixes graphene and resins to create an ultralight and sturdy piece of eyewear. The frames are available now and come in two shapes and a handful of colors.
