Project Glass For Those With Prescription Glasses

Google’s futuristic Project Glass promises a world where augmented reality is commonplace and information is literally right in front of us. The photos we’ve seen of the prototypes show a specialized pair of glasses, which had many people asking how those who already wear prescription glasses could use the device. Well, thanks to Google industrial designer Isabelle Olsson, we learned that Google is working on a version that can be used in conjunction with an existing pair of glasses. Great news for glasses-wearing geeks everywhere!

We ideally want Project Glass to work for everyone,” Olsson said on Google+, “and we’re experimenting with designs that are meant to be extendable to different types of frames.

Check out the high resolution early mockup of how the device might work with prescription glasses after the break.

    How about skipping glasses all togeteher and let the gadget handle it ? The gadget films the surroundings and sends the images to the correct focus point in the eye ?


      Because I don’t want to be driving when my vision needs to reboot causing me to crash into the person in front of me.
