We’re all waiting patiently for Google Glass to go on sale. But as we wait, consider for a minute how Google Glass would work for you should you not have perfect 20/20 vision? It’s funny because even though they look like they’re glasses, they’re not. Fear not, Rochester Optical has developed prescription lenses that can be worn with the wearable tech. These ‘digital high definition prescription lenses’ are anticipated to expand into fashion and sport lenses for Google Glass when the product launches.
However, according to recent reports from Google, there is currently no partnership between the two companies. Rochester Optical has reportedly been taking pre-orders at CES2014.
You’ve still got a few months to finesse your prescription as the Google Glass release date is anticipated for April of this year. We’re predicting it will set you back as much as any smart phone, approximately $600. If you really can’t wait until April (this date is not confirmed by Google), it is possible to purchase a sample set on eBay, Craigslist or Amazon for a much heftier price tag.
What do you think? Will Google Glass become the next iPhone?
