Crafted from titanium, Google has a line of frames built for those that wish to equip Google Glass with their prescription lenses. Priced at $225 a pop, these frames go alongside the $1,499 beta tester price that Google Glass Explorers are already accustomed to, a high price tag which will be drastically reduced come the consumer launch later this year.
Google says that the frames were designed in-house, and that the four of them — Curve, Thin, Split, Bold — were meant to be simple, but also attractive and functional. Attaching the frames take several screws, but otherwise, that seems to be the only inconvenience. VSP, the largest optical health insurance provider in the US, is working with Google to offer subsidized frames and lenses for those who qualify.
So that settles that for Glass. Now, onto making it more streamlined, less expensive, and publicly available, while also refining the operating system. Video after the break.
