While ‘traditional’ approaches allow condensation to form then act to remove it, Zoggles™ preventscondensation from ever forming by changing the conditions so that condensation simply cannot and does not exist!
How does it do that?
By using micro-sensors and applying thermodynamics, Zoggles™ is able to determine when fogging is imminent, and when it is, Zoggles™ raises the surface temperature of the object by as little as a fraction of a degree Fahrenheit. By preventing an object’s surface from falling to or below the temperature where condensation is thermodynamically possible, it simply cannot form!
Zoggles™ is small and completely electronic. The entire Zoggles’ technology weighs less than ¼ of an ounce and has a footprint of less than 1 square inch! By preventing condensation from forming rather than allowing it to deposit and re-vaporizing it, energy usage is extremely small – on the order of one-thousandth of that of the ‘traditional’ deposit-remove approach.
Zoggles™ does not require or use any on-board fans, and there are no moving parts that add noise and vibration, or wear out. Zoggles™ does not require any ‘special’ sprays or wipes. In fact no user action is needed other than to turn it on. Zoggles™ Smart Circuit™ technology is extremely energy efficient. When conditions dictate, Zoggles™ places itself in ‘sleep mode’ saving even more energy. Once it senses activity, Zoggles™ immediately awakens and returns to active mode.
Zoggles™ works equally well in hot or cold conditions, it even works under water! An object equipped with Zoggles™ can be completely immersed in water without harming the Zoggles™ electronics. A simple shake to remove the water and Zoggles™ is all set to go once again.
Over 300 separate commercial and military uses have already been identified for Zoggles™ anti-fog anti-frost technology. From eyeglasses to SCUBA masks, ski goggles to motorcycle helmets, and binoculars to astronaut space suit helmets, the list goes on and on.

In early 2006, we were contacted by several National Geographic sponsored professional mountain climbers who asked if our Zoggles™ technology could be applied to ski or mountaineering goggles. Zoggles™ extreme weather mountaineering goggles were the first goggle that didn’t fog or frost on Everest.
Successfully tested in -30° F, 60 MPH wind conditions on Mount Everest, Zoggles™ electronic anti-fog/anti-ice technology was declared the winner of NASA’s international 2008-2009 Create the Future new technology competition in the Safety and Security category.
