This is not a joke. After all the wearable tech that we've seen -- from child trackers to whole boutiques devoted to the topic -- we're pretty pumped about this latest venture from Tzukuri: Sunglasses that will send you a text message if you forget them at brunch, if you left them in your apartment or basically anywhere else. Brilliant, right?

The Japanese label, though, didn't just think of function when they crafted these lenses: They thought of style, too. Using 3D technology, Tzukuri analyzed thousands of different faces and developed six designs in three sizes that aim to "fit more harmoniously with a broader range of facial structures." So basically, these babies will fit you -- and look good on you, too.

What's more is exactly how they work, too: Tzukuri glasses are bluetooth-enabled and can connect with your phone, so long as you have your Bluetooth on and you've downloaded the sunglasses' companion app.

Once you start walking away from your beautiful sunglasses, you'll receive notifications on your phone at 16 feet, 32 feet and 50 feet away. And if for some reason you forget where you were when you last had them (which, let's be real, I totally do all the time), you can look on the app's map to see where they are.

Now while a $350 price tag would normally scare us off, we're encouraged by the $100 off you can get right now if you pre-order. And frankly, we can't really put a price on never misplacing our precious sunglasses, either.
