Google Glass for glasses wearers is becoming a reality
Nearsighted and farsighted early adopters have a date in sight for the first prescription lenses that are compatible with Google Glass.
That's a very small chunk of change compared to the $1,500 (about £906, AU$1,677) that Google Glass Explorers have already sunk into the invite-only gadget.
It's also a priceless add-on given the fact that Google Glass currently doesn't work with normal eyeglasses. It's an investment worth making for a large portion of tech enthusiasts.
Prescription Google Glass release date
A recent questionnaire made the Rochester Optical lenses sound as if they work along the lines of the clip-on clear shield and tinted sunglasses that fasten between the Google Glass nosepieces.
Google's version, meanwhile, is expected to replace the frame entirely but keep the heads-up display, according to leaked photos of the prototype. Sadly, it has no price or release date yet.
While we're not sure which design will be better, pre-orders for the affordable Rochester Optical lenses may very well be the first solution for glasses wearers out there.
