Google Glass Arrives with Four Prescription Options

Google has always been about thinking big. The Granddaddy of Search Engines truly goes for the moon-shot. Well, have we got news for you. Its Google Glass has come up in an exciting series of prescription frames which can be yours for a mere $225 each. The adaptive lenses are part and parcel of these spectacles. 

The Google Glass itself will cost you a lot more than the $225 though. It will put you back by at least $1500. That would be pricey or affordable depending on the thickness of your wallet. All four of the frames are composed of titanium. That means that they are made of strong stuff. 

Slight in structure and featherweight, the four prescription lenses are very stylish indeed. They have been chosen after examining hundreds of models and peeling away the excess dross thereby revealing the cool, classic look. It is all ultimately about the shape and form of the frames. 

Although they are not exactly accessories to Google Glass, these pairs of glasses don’t work by themselves. The reason is their mismatched structures. They are meant to go well with Google Glass. They slip on to Google Glass and the beautiful thing is it all takes place so naturally without any hitch. 

The solid interface of the two doesn’t feel like construction blocks. And one more thing: Google is not about to sell them at an optometrist’s prescription. It doesn’t work that way. They’re good to wear and they come with the main product. It’s as simple as that.

How do you make a computer that people will want to wear on their face? “You have to make it light,” says Isabelle Olsson, the lead designer of Google Glass, the computer-equipped eyewear. “You can’t expect people to wear goggles all day long.” Over years of trial and error, Olsson guided Glass through hundreds of bulky prototypes to its current sleek (if not necessarily stylish) look.
