Google Glass Ray-Bans, anyone?

25 March 2014

How could Google make Glass less, well, RUBBISH LOOKING? The current design of Glass makes everyone look like a robot Sarah Palin, receiving mysterious instructions from the ghost of George Bush Snr.

Well, there is a possible solution for Google – they’ve just signed a deal with eyewear company Luxottica, who make bins for Ray-Ban and Oakley.

They’ve been charged with creating an exclusive range of frames for Glass for the American market, which will apparently ‘combine high-end technology with avant-garde design offering the best in style, quality, and performance.’

It’s the first indication that Google are keen to push Glass into a more mainstream market that doesn’t just involve corporate eejits and Silicon Valley pillocks. But it’s not going to be THAT mainstream.

‘You're not going to see Glass on your favourite Oakleys or Ray-Bans tomorrow,’ said Google. ‘But it marks a new chapter in Glass’s design.’

May I suggest that Luxottica take inspiration from a few glasses wearing British icons? I’m thinking The Pollard, The Mallett and the Great Suprendo could be added to the range…
