One of the most disconcerting pieces of news circulating around Google Glass the past few weeks has been the reveal that it will not work with those who already wear prescription glasses. Today, that news changes as Google has given those of us with glasses some hope.
Seen below is Glass team member Greg Priest-Dorman, and you’ll notice 2 things right off the bat; 1) he’s rocking a sweet beard, and 2) he is using Glass with a custom set of frames and prescription lenses.
From the horse’s mouth itself:
“One of the questions we hear the most is whether there will be a prescription solution for Glass. The short answer is: yes!
The Glass design is modular, so you will be able to add frames and lenses that match your prescription. We understand how important this is and we’ve been working hard on it. Here’s a picture of +Greg Priest-Dorman, a member of the Glass team and an early pioneer in wearable computing, wearing one of the prototypes we’re testing.
We’re still perfecting the design for prescription frames. Although the frames won’t be ready for the Explorer Edition’s release, hang in there — you can expect to see them later this year.”
It sounds like if you’re an early adopter-type and need glasses, you may have to wait a bit longer, but at least this is now a confirmed option!
