Project Glass goes on the catwalk showing it can be both pretty and comfortable, not just futuristic
Google’s Project Glass arrived with a splash at Google’s I/O 2012 a couple of months ago, but since then we’ve heard little about the wearable glasses prototype. That is until now when chief dreamer executive at Google, Sergey Brin, appeared on the catwalk at the New York Fashion Week along with designer Diane von Furstenberg who showed the glasses on her models.

Project Glass is basically a display you wear on a frame much like glasses and operated with a tiny touchpad on the side, and it comes with a camera so that you can capture all kinds of moments you wouldn’t otherwise be able to catch.

Nay-sayers have criticized the glasses for their unconventional design and for the weirdness of wearing the frame at all times, and probably that’s one of the reasons that pushed Google to feature Project Glass at no other place but the catwalk with actual fashion models wearing them and proving the point that it’s not against aesthetics.

"Beauty, style and comfort are as important to Glass as the latest technology," Brin said in a statement. "We are delighted to bring Glass to the runway together with DVF.”

Check out pictures of the event and how the glasses fit the models and let us know how do you like the Project Glass idea?

Hey this is looking more & more positive. To make this tech look good at the same time makes this to me more viable. Good job Google. It looks like Google/Project Glass will be a staple in 2013!

naw they still have a long way to go with the design... it still looks very odd...

still great innovative product; very futuristic... but it has to look like glasses which it doesn't...

I don't meant to pour cold water, but don't most items that appear on the runway hardly make it to retail?
