Google has released a digital frame glasses Glass
Google has announced a proprietary line of frames for Google Glass . Frames are made of titanium and are available in several versions. Ability to use Glass with corrective lenses may be the most popular feature on the face of portable computer Google, which was released last year.
The move is yet another attempt to make Google beta own digital points more stylish and consumer-oriented before the massive sales in late 2014. Glass Frames for corrective glasses available on the company’s website, which offers several options and costs $ 225 per copy.
The range called Titanium frames includes four options: Bold, Curve, Thin and Split. In addition, Google offers three options for glasses with sun glasses brand Maui Jim and costs $ 150 for each.
Hardware Glass, which allows you to record video and project content on a small screen in front of the right eye of the user, has not changed. Last update by tapping modular design Google Glass, dated October last year.
However, the modular design does not mean that the user can change the rims for Google Glass as gloves. Although the process of fixing the gadget to corrective glasses do not require much effort, not intended for frequent replacement. Google promises that wearing Glass is so comfortable that users accustomed to the usual points, did not even notice the difference.
Once the time comes, I hope it will happen very soon, when people ask themselves why they need regular glasses. They do not know how to do this and that – said the head of Google Glass Steve Lee.
At the same time bind to the Google Glass corrective glasses can cause a number of difficulties – due to problems with vision correction Glass owners everywhere will not abandon their use. As is known to be connected to the Internet is not always welcome points.
Earlier this month the FBI detained Google Glass user directly in the cinema. As it turned out, a resident of Ohio was suspected in the shooting of a hidden camera during a screening of the film. The situation was resolved when the man explained servants authorities that his wearable gadget is not functioning and has been combined with sunglasses vision correction. He bought a frame for a third-party seller Glass for $ 600.
Many states also an urgent need to use Glass while driving. Last year, the California police fined a woman for the use of digital points behind the wheel. Although its fine was challenged and overturned by the courts, the question of the use of Glass, fastened with corrective glasses in one device, remains open.
In Google confident that these problems will be solved as soon as Glass become a mass product and people will learn to recognize the status of the device. In the current version there is no indicator light points, however, to determine enabled gadget on or off, others may faint glow on the screen.
By the way, there’s an app Glass Drive Safe, which is able to wake the driver, when he starts to fall asleep. And what about the use of augmented reality glasses in cinemas, it is convenient to provide them with movies subtitles. I think there will always be an audience that will appreciate this innovation. After all, this technology has the right to subsistence and development, and people, in turn, should support her, says the Google Glass Chris Dale.

Despite early rumors about a possible partnership with Warby Parker, new frames were developed in-house without outsourcing Google companies. However, Google in the future does not preclude cooperation with an independent third party, which gives hope for the emergence of the market Glass-compatible accessories from other brands.
Even external similarity of new frames with conventional eyeglass frames does owner Glass less noticeable to others. Perhaps in the future and will be able to reduce the wearable computer, but while Google believes that it is not too important for users of the device. More advanced modular design and partnership with third-party companies can expand the range of products for owners of Glass. As a result, the user himself can choose to wear it visibly gadget for others or remain undetected .
