The first collection of prescription frames for Google’s entry into wearable technology is on sale at google.com/glass.
The first version of Glass, Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display, originally unveiled in September 2012 at Diane von Furstenberg’s spring 2013 runway show.
Google’s new Glass offering includes titanium optical frames, with round, square and nearly rimless versions, as well as non-prescription sunglass styles. The frames are lighter than most sunglasses and are intended for existing users, who can attach their Glass devices.
The frames are also available in four designs and are sold separately from Glass. This means they can be worn with or without the clip-on high-tech element.
The move sees Google positioning Glass as a customisable lifestyle accessory for the first time, as well as making it available to people, who already need to wear glasses.
Google has partnered with VSP Vision Care. A list of VSP optometrists will be provided to Explorers during the ordering process.
