Google Glass Makes Fashion Runway Debut, Looks to Make Funny Looking Glasses Cool?

It’s funny to think back about how many people said Google Glass looked silly. Not so much the design itself, but how it made a human being look. Dumb. Nerdy. Geeky. Whatever you want to call that look above, I’ll take it. Recently, fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg added the high-tech eye wear to her 2013 spring collection runway show and also used the devices backstage to record video of the event to make a film that gives an inside look at putting on a show such as this.

With Google Glass still not becoming available to even developers until next year, this is a pretty awesome way to get non-Android fanboys into technology such as this. Can’t say I feel the same for the other sunglasses pictured above. Plus one, Furstenberg.

  • This seems like a good way to troll a Google Glasses user (until I get some myself):


  • jambo

    I like what I see. The glasses look pretty cool too.

  • ddevito

    Google Goggles should make their debut in porn.

    think about that for a minute

    • MonkeyWork

      It worked for VHS and Blu-ray, so it will HAVE to happen.

    Lame. Google Glasses should be used the RIGHT way, and not the WRONG way, and using ’em at some lame fashion show is the WRONG way.

  • JulianZHuang

    those models were paid to wear it. if google paid me to do it, i dont mind being laugh at and tears on.

  • If I can see throu cloth I am buying one 🙂 lol

  • MichaelFranz

    Looks very “Fifth Element-ish”

  • A picture of the “runway debut” would be nice =P

    The person responsible for designing the aesthetics of these should be put in prison without the chance of parole. Seriously though, I know they aren’t on the market yet, but if I was Google, and I was going to make them publicly visible, I would’ve invested some cash into making them look ultra sleek, to help build the hype for them. Give me about a day on cad, and I’ll design something much, much better looking.

    • TheWhiteLotus

      Except CAD =/= real life prototype possibilities.

    • Mgokeefe

      Prison with no parole, exaggerate much? If all you need is a day on cad, well you get two whole ones off every weekend, get crackin’! 😉

      • Adam Steiner

        Except I don’t work for Google… and I don’t spend my weekends parked away at a computer doing CAD drawings for products I don’t have control over for fun. The point is, their design is atrocious and it wouldn’t have been difficult to improve it, except they haven’t yet. If you noticed, after my initial sentence, I used the phrase “seriously, though,” indicating of course, that my prefacing comment wasn’t serious. Although, your overreaction highlights the sad fate of humorous exaggerations on internet message boards.

          Geez get over yourself. Google may not be the best company for hardware design but I don’t see you doing anything other than making lousy comments on a blog. At least Google has a “working” prototype.
          So please, enlighten us all as to how you would design this and still be functional so that we may all be enlightened by you.

          • Adam Steiner

            Geez, get over yourself. And you’re adding a lot by defending Google on a blog…. Google is probably my favorite company out there, I just think they should’ve spent more time on the design. Apparently, that’s beyond indefensible.

          • RB

            I agree with you. I also think that Google should start making some elegant designs instead of playful. I’m no designer but I can see that elegant has more success when comparing other companies (for example Apple).

  • Maybe would be better if they didn’t take the worst shot of those models possible for the front page. I like the slouching model. “Ugh, get these nerd models away from me..”

    • Trevor

      agree a non flattering picture she looks like a fish

      • socalrailroader

        She looks like a corpse, they all do.
