Case4Glass Looks Like a Great Google Glass Case, Assuming Its Kickstarter Goal can be Met

Should you already own Google Glass, like the rest of us, I’d be that you have probably complained out loud a time or two about its storability and portability when not on head. The headset itself doesn’t break down, collapse, or do any other typical glass movement to make it easy to store, so owners of the $1,500 contraption are left either using the oversized and inconvenient soft-hard case that comes with Glass, or risking setting them down on a table. To remedy the situation or at least provide another option, a Glass owner/engineer has taken to Kickstarter (of course they have) to create the Case4Glass

Case4Glass is a molded clamshell-style case that fits precisely around the most important pieces of Glass; that would be the prism side which houses the battery, camera, and all other internals. Should you damage that side of Glass, you’d simply be out $1,500. It flips open and close to give you access to Glass, acts as a gripped handle when transporting Glass that isn’t on your head, and should provide plenty of protection, something the current Glass case hardly is capable of.

Obviously, this will appeal to very few people at this point, unless the new Google Music invite system works out. In other words, the Kickstarter goal of $22,050 might be hard to hit unless just about every Glass Explorer on the planet signs up. Thankfully, we are only looking at a starting price of $33 to back this project. If you own Glass and can afford the $1,500 price tag, I’d imagine you’d be willing to spend $33 to protect it, right?

    Yes you are right, it was a big issue to carry glasses in bags or in other cases. Thanks for suggest me this product, I will definitely purchase this. On which store I can purchase it?

    what if Google drastically changes the Glass design before this case hits the market?

  • Herb_Eaversmells

    Yeah that doesn’t look like a penis at all…

  • a) youth.in.asia

    Should be called “case½glass”

  • Agunimon

    I assumed it would be a whole case when i read the title of this article on twitter.

  • Mike Aurin

    “Honey, where’s my Glass case?”

  • fauxshizzl

    If people thought wearing them looked stupid wait till they see you pull out your half case for them.

  • Eric Meadow

    For me, id much rather store them like this; the other half is reasonably solid and not going to get totally wrecked so easily, the only thing im really concerned about are the internals. im funding this.

  • LSH99

    Um… It looks like something I’d find in my wife’s nightstand. *shrug*

    • JD

      This was my thought exactly….

  • Adrynalyne

    Useless for those who actually have it built into their prescription glasses.

  • Paul

    Looks terrible. What is the point when you can completely destroy the other half of it.

    • Patrick Jewell

      The other half is pretty durable. If your going to destroy the titanium portion, whatever protection you have on the prism, isn’t going to cut it anyways. I am interested seeing whole case though too. This is providing minimalistic approach to protection.
