The Future Is Here: Listen to Music With these Snazzy Sci-Fi Glasses

A cross between traditional sunglasses and a personal portable speaker, the Lucyd Lyte is a revolutionary product that allows the user to listen to music, podcasts, and even take calls through the glasses using bone conduction technology. Weighing less than two ounces, these futuristic frames allow you to interact with the world around you while discreetly listening to audio via Bluetooth. If sunglasses aren't your thing, you can purchase a variety of swappable lenses through Lucyd's website

I love the look and feel of these glasses. The fit and finish of these durable designer glasses offer a sleek and stylish design that can be worn no matter the occasion. The narrow left and right temples of the glasses executed a custom feeling fit to perfection around my ears that at times it felt as if they weren't on my head. The high-quality UV polarized lenses obstruct the right balance of light and dark in a variety of environments.

Setting up the Lytes is as easy as it can get. Simply take them out of the folding case, turn them on pushing both buttons on the front of the glasses, and turn on Bluetooth via your enabled device. The glasses will connect and you can play your audio from there. A voice message will play through the glasses notifying you that they are now connected. The Lytes also features hands-free controls, allowing the user to pause/play their audio, adjust the volume, answer/decline calls, and talk to Siri directly through the glasses.

I compared these to the recently released Bose Tenor, and the Lytes was the clear winner. The Tenors felt bulky and uncomfortable wearing, while the Lytes felt snug and well-fitting on my face. The Lytes has a stunning battery life of over six hours of listening time, but the Tenors drastically fall short at just over five hours. I tested the sound quality of both glasses and while the Bose was slightly superior in acoustics and tonality, there isn't a substantial difference in quality between the two. The only category that the Tenors exceed in is that they are much quieter, meaning that due to the placement of the internal speakers, others are less likely to hear the audio being played. However, with the Lytes being only $119 as compared to Tenor's hefty price tag of $249, it is easy to see past this tiny flaw. Both glasses were easy to operate, had crisp microphone quality, and had great use of touch controls.

I hope you learned something about this exciting new type of eyewear. If you would like to learn more about Lucyd, please visit their StartEngine campaign.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.

198227

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.

Going To College During COVID-19 Has Caused Some INTENSE Burnout, And It's Not Just Me

Graduation doesn't even feel like the light at the end of the tunnel anymore.

2422

When my college announced that we would be having the fall 2020 semester on-campus, I was pretty excited. After six months of living at home with my parents with nothing to do, my study abroad trip in May canceled, and my 21st birthday plans down the drain, going back to campus meant that I would regain some of my individuality and see my friends again. But since we've returned, it has not been as fun as I had hoped my senior year of college would be.

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.

127554

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).
