Google Glass to be integrated in prescription frames
29 January, 2014
Google Glass is being integrated into prescription frames from the US tech giant, a move that could broaden the appeal of the Internet-connected eyewear.
Google announced on Tuesday it was making a version of the eyewear for people who wear prescription glasses, addressing one of the concerns about the new product. "If we had a nickel for every time someone has asked about prescription lenses for Glass, well, we'd have a lot of nickels," said a Google Glass blog posting.
"So we want you to be the first to know that the Titanium Collection is here, with a handful of new styles for Glass so you can make it your own. Whether you wear prescription glasses or just want a new look, we've got four feather-light titanium frames designed just for you."
Google Glass is currently being tested by a small number of "explorers" who paid $1,500 each for the eyewear. It is expected to get a wider release sometime this year.
