Reactolite Rapide – the glasses that darken in 30 seconds!


A brand name that left little to the imagination. Remember my Dad had a pair of these and when we were in the car as a family, my sister and I would watch to see the lenses in his glasses turn darker as we emerged from a road tunnel into the sunshine. 70s science was amazing!
