Google’s augmented reality Google Glass project is amazing: it’s wearable technology that will allow us to learn more about the world around us simply by viewing it through a small lens that hovers over our eyeball. There’s been concern that it won’t work well with people who require prescription glasses, however, and Google is laying those concerns to rest.
“The Glass design is modular, so you will be able to add frames and lenses that match your prescription,” the Google Glass team said today. “We understand how important this is and we’ve been working hard on it. Here’s a picture of +Greg Priest-Dorman [see above], a member of the Glass team and an early pioneer in wearable computing, wearing one of the prototypes we’re testing.”
Google is also allegedly working with Warby Parker, the now famous prescription glasses company, on creating fashionable designs for its project.
