Google Glass has sure caused a stir out on the prairie, what with all that privacy, geekiness, and intrusive stuff flying around. But the fact is that wearable tech is going to happen in one way or another, whether we like it or not. Our only choice is in how to make it all more practical.
For an example of what we mean, this new Wetley GGRX Prescription Frame Adapter for Google Glass shows clearly that people are thinking ahead, to a time when wearing information devices becomes something that people adopt quite readily.
Up till now the problem has been that you’re limited to the frame sets that come with Glass, which means no goodness for folk who suffer from some sort of eyesight issue. Now that’s gone away. This adapter set, which comes without prescription lenses by default, lets you mount your prescription lens set to Google Glass in seconds.
We’re not sure that this will make you look any less geeky, but it should help you avoid lamp poles and other obstacles as you merrily ‘Go Glass’ around your world. The stainless steel lens adapter is hypoallergenic, super lightweight and can be flexed to suit your needs. Note that you need to supply your own Google Glass set.
The basic set without lenses costs $99, but you can also order an adapter with your choice of ‘single vision’ prescription lenses included for $149.00. The cool thing – depending on your religion – about the latter is your whole family can use the same Google Glass set just by switching the prescription lens inserts.
