It would appear that Google has plans to make Google Glass look a little less nerdy, the company has announced a deal with the Luxottica Group who are the makers of Ray Ban and Oakley sunglasses.
Google will be working with Luxottica to design a new range of Google Glass frames, although when these will be released, has yet to be announced.
Luxottica understands how to build, distribute and sell great products that their clients and consumers love – something we care deeply about at Glass, too. They’ll bring design and manufacturing expertise to the mix, and, together, we’ll bring even more Glass style choices to our Explorers. In addition, Luxottica’s retail and wholesale distribution channels will serve us well when we make Glass available to more people down the road.
You’re not going to see Glass on your favorite Oakleys or Ray-Bans tomorrow, but today marks the start of a new chapter in Glass’s design. Excited? Because we definitely are.
It isn’t clear as yet from the announcement by Google, whether Luxottica will be integrating Google Glass into future Ray Ban and Oakley sunglasses, or whether they will develop a completely new brand for Google.
