AUK Engineering Professor Receives Silver Medal at the 9th International Invention Fair of Middle East

Dr. Seyed Esmaeili of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the American University of Kuwait was awarded a silver medal for his invention at the 9th International Invention Fair of Middle East (IIFME) which took place in Kuwait from the 16th to 19th of January, 2017. Held Under the patronage of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, IIFME is the second largest international exhibition for inventions after the International Invention Exhibition of Geneva. Nearly 200 inventors from 36 countries across the globe participated with 150 inventions.

Dr. Esmaeili's invention, entitled: Reversible Adjustable Eyeglasses with Polarized and/or Prescription Lenses, basically consists of eyeglasses that can be adjusted to provide two different looks. Rotatable side arms and a rotatable secondary frame provide a mechanism to interchange the interior and exterior sides of the glasses which can differ in color, pattern, or both. A correct lens orientation indicator on the secondary frame ensures correct configuration of the glasses. The proposed mechanism is both easy to manufacture and user friendly.

Dr. Esmaeili received both US and European patents for his invention. He had also designed and modeled the glasses using a 3D printer. The invention was well received by the inventors, the judging committee, as well as the public at the IIFME.
