LIFESTYLE - INTERVIEW
by Beren Dere
Our life is so comfortable thanks to the inventors' designs. Tim Hsu designed the Ztylus Revolver product to get rid of the problem he discovered about optical lenses attached to smartphone cameras. In addition to the Revolver lenses, the Ztylus brand offers different optical lenses and solutions to its users. I talked to Tim Hsu, Founder and CEO of Ztylus Innovation, about his designs and brand.
Tim, how did you first interested in smartphone solutions and optic lenses?

Since everyone has a smartphone, and the smartphone is not limited to just a phone, actually it gives revolution to a lot of industries, including the camera industry, the best camera is the one with you every day.
How did you decide to establish Ztylus Innovation?
When I started the company, I actually want to build a unique Stylus Pen for the iOS system, that is why we named our company Ztylus, since I believe based on different user experiences, people may need a stylus for better performance than using their fingers on the touchscreen. Of course, as you can tell, we are no more limit ourselves on stylus pen products and now we expanded to many other industries.
What inspired you to design Revolver Lens? What are the features of Revolve Lenses?
Since I use some other existing smartphone lens system, and I hate the lens caps, since it is complicated to put it on and take it off, and they are so easy to get lost, that's why I want to design a uniques system, which doesn't require any lens cap, and quick to install and use. As you can tell, the revolver lens actually combines several different lenses into one rotatable unit, and you no more need any lens cap.
Which smartphone models are compatible with Revolve Lenses?
At this moment, we are focusing on the iPhone ONLY. We tried a few Samsung and Huawei phones before, the iPhone is always our favorite.
Could you tell us about your newest lens Z-Prime?
The Z-Prime lens is a new approach to high-end smartphone lens, which we team with experienced optics engineer to design the professional level lens groups for a smartphone.
In a sense, they are proof of your success. Could you briefly tell us about the design awards that you won?
We proudly won the 2016/2018 CES Innovation Awards.

While we are continuing with our current smartphone lens lines, we are exploring other products like Apple Pencil Case, Emergency Escape Tools, and recently we are working on a new type of Smart Gun Control Device to avoid misuse of a firearm.
Social media is based on smartphone and photo. How do you use social media for Ztylus Innovation? How can our readers follow Ztylus Innovation?
