Google reportedly talking to Warby Parker to make Glass more fashionable

Sooner or later, Google Glass is going to leave the sphere of developers and enthusiasts and enter the sphere of more casual consumers. When that day comes, it seems reasonable that Google might want to either make Glass a bit more fashionable (though we have grown to like the design), or at least offer different designs from which to choose. With that in mind, there are new reports that Google is in talks with eyewear startup Warby Parker to make Google Glass more fashionable...

If you want to buy them now. When they come out to the public, they should cost less.

That fine lady in that picture, or any of the models in Google Glass ads, by no means looks like a robot...what have you been smoking? Glass is merely another wearable gadget just like a watch or a pair of headphones or what not. Wearing it does not make you look like a robot...

There would be far too many people complaining about privacy infringement if the device were too concealed. It has to be blatant that the person is wearing it.

I know, but I'm talking about the reflex, the way you behave when the camera is pointed at you, the pure physical aspect of a lens of the camera. What I am trying to say is that people act differently when they've been told that they are being recorded and don't see the camera, and when they see it staring at their face. I can tell you for sure that people wouldn't feel comfortable in a room with a guy wearing that all the time. Maybe future generations and their concept of privacy would, but now...
