This evening, Google unwrapped a set of four new frames for Google Glass, a group that includes options for prescription lenses. Yes, people who wear real glasses on a daily basis will now be able to wear Glass and actually see the world as they use it. These new frames may also help the product look less super-cyborgy-awkward-nerdgastic-wtfisonyourheadweirdo. Well, one can hope.
All four are made of titanium, so they are ultra-light and “designed just for you.” In other words, they are trendy, work with prescription lenses, and are also there in case you “just want a new look.” Oh, and your vision insurance may even help cover the frames.
The frame collection is being called the “Titanium Collection.” Google Glass Explorers will have access to the new frames tomorrow afternoon, with frames starting at $225.
Here are the four frames:
