The use of sun visors is known in the related art. Sun visors are customarily used in vehicles to shield the eyes of drivers and front seat passengers from the harsh brightness of incoming sunlight. Especially for the driver, the incidence of sunlight on the eyes inhibits vision. This poses a serious safety hazard on the driver and any other occupants of the vehicle, as reduced visibility severely impairs the driver’s ability to safely navigate roads and avoid possible collisions. Harsh sunlight incident on the eyes also been known to cause physical discomfort and permanent eye damage or blindness.
Sun visors of the related art are generally rotatable in two directions. The first rotation allows an operator, either the driver or front seat passenger, to swing the visor from the interior roof of the vehicle to the windshield and cover up an upper portion of the windshield. The second rotation allows an operator to swing the visor from the windshield to the adjacent side window and cover an upper portion of the adjacent side window. In effect, an operator can shield his or her eyes from head-on sunlight or lateral sunlight. However, current sun visors are restricted to these two rotational degrees of freedom. Sunlight is imposed at a more direct angle with a driver or front passenger’s eyes when the sun descends below the bottom visor during sunset. Likewise, sunlight is also imposed at a more direct angle before the sun ascends above the bottom of the visor during sunrise. Current sun visors cannot generally be extended to low enough positions to shield the eyes of many drivers and passengers from low-level sunlight, which causes the previously discussed safety hazard, physical discomfort, and potential eye damage.
Therefore, it is an object of the present invention to provide an adjustable sun visor which is vertically extendable to low enough positions to shield a person’s eyes during times of the day when light from the sun is more directly in the field of vision necessary to operate a vehicle. It is another object of the present invention to overcome the deficiencies of the related art related to safety, comfort, and vision preservation, by providing an adjustable sun visor which is vertically extendable. It is yet another object of the present invention to protect a driver and front passenger’s face from ultra violet radiation and intense temperatures associated with the transfer of energy from sunlight to the skin.
The inventor of the ADJUSTABLE SUN VISOR is seeking a third party licensee to manufacture, market and distribute the product for him under a royalty agreement. Potential licensees in the appropriate industries are currently being targeted as candidates to eventually commercialize the Adjustable Sun Visor on a worldwide basis.
According to a comprehensive university study brokered by World Patent Marketing, there is a strong likelihood of this product being successful in the marketplace.
Potential licensees interested in obtaining more information about the Adjustable Sun Visor and discussing licensing opportunities with respect to the product can contact the Licensing Department of WorldPatentMarketing.com at firstname.lastname@example.org or 646-412-5985.
