While this might do a lot to make Glass more palpable, it will undoubtedly allow wearable tech to advance, and take away from the stigma of “geeky technology.” “We live in a world where technological innovation has dramatically changed the way in which we communicate and interact in everything that we do. More importantly, we have come to a point where we now have both a technology push and a consumer pull for wearable technology products and applications,” Luxottica said in a press release yesterday. “We believe it is high time to combine the unique expertise, deep knowledge and quality of our Group with the cutting edge technology expertise of Google and give birth to a new generation of revolutionary devices.”
We won’t be seeing any of these styles soon, but by the time we do, chances are good that we’ll actually want to grab one. Or two. But we can’t be the only ones—would the option of a stylish Google Glass entice you to pick one up when they become available?
