Google partners for Glass prescription, fashion and sports lenses
Google has had plans in the pipeline for a prescription lens version of Glass and now it’s coming to light.
Google has teamed up with Rochester Optical to design and create “custom prescription, fashion, and sports lenses”. The lenses should be ready for early next year, just in time for Google Glass 2 hopefully. The styles will include transitions, tinting and matching colour wire frames.
Google announced that Glass Explorers will be able to swap their current headsets for the new model when it becomes available. It has also become less strict on Explorers selling on their models. We’ve already seen pairs appearing on ebay.
Would custom pair Glass make it more appealing to you? And would be be prepared to pay over a grand for a set? Let us know in the comment below.
