Our Featured Guest for Sunday, June 23rd, is Sahir Zaveri
Sahir Zaveri is the Co-Founder and CEO of King Children – a custom eyewear company which aims to give everyone unique, custom designs made for them, by them. Harnessing the power of 3D scanning and printing technology, in addition to augmented reality, King Children celebrates the diversity of every face by offering customized eyewear that fits your face perfectly. Maintaining no inventory, King Children creates each pair of glasses to order by utilizing 3D printing technology and their app that appears like you’re using Snapchat or Instagram sunglasses filter. Rather than a filter though, you can swap out different styles, sizes, colors and shapes to shop a pair made for you. With King Children’s values being diversity, inclusivity, creativity and self-expression, King Children aims to create a community that provides a platform for people of all artistries to express their crafts.
