Google Glass, the search engine giant’s attempt at making wearable tech received a boost as reports about a collaboration with online glasses store, Warby Parker have surfaced. The speculated partnership reportedly has a sole purpose, to make the Google glasses stylish and wearable (It seems odd when you are wearing a processor in a frame)
The AR glasses from Google have been the subject of discussion of recent technology discussions. Google is reportedly taking applications to create a sample group for testing the Google Glass. The Mountain View company is planning to sell more devices later this year. The product was first unveiled at a Google event last year.
Talking about the development of Google Glass, a statement from the company read, “We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass. We’re still in the early stages and, while we can’t promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting.”
The concept of Project Glass was envisioned by Sergey Brin and the AR glasses have become one among the top forays in creating a wearable tech. The glasses connect to the Internet through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, which connects to the wireless service on a user’s cellphone. The glasses respond when a user speaks, touches the frame or moves the head.
With Google Glass already in the testing phase, wearable technology is on the rise. Apple is reportedly making a wearable wrist watch and has a team of 100 designers working on the device. What do you think of the Google Glass?
