When it comes to safety glasses there is one clear winner: safety glasses.
Polarised safety glasses are widely used by auto industry and insurance companies to protect drivers against traffic collisions.
They are also widely used to help them spot problems before they happen.
But according to researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) they have some major drawbacks.
One major drawback of the polarised glasses is that they are expensive and not very useful in most instances.
NIST has developed a prototype for the polarisation glasses, which is now undergoing rigorous testing.
According to the NIST, the polarising glasses are safer and more effective than the conventional safety glasses and have a smaller footprint.
“The polarised safety glass is more cost-effective and smaller, but it also has a smaller user footprint compared to traditional safety glasses,” NIST’s Amitabh Kothari told Quartz.
However, there is another significant disadvantage of the new technology: the glasses are only available for two years and cost about $150.
The cost of the safety glasses can be estimated to be $500, which could mean a big loss to consumers who want to switch to a safer glasses, the researchers said.
The NIST team is looking into how to increase the availability of polarised glass for drivers in the coming years.
“In the coming months, we plan to roll out a series of research and development initiatives aimed at further enhancing the availability and usability of polarising safety glasses across the industry,” the NISTS website said.
“The key objective of these initiatives is to enable consumers to take more effective safety actions while driving,” it said.
