Project Glass goes on the catwalk showing it can be both pretty and comfortable, not just futuristic
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?
Today we’re thrilled to collaborate with the visionary and celebrated designer Diane von Furstenberg. For the past week, we’ve been using Glass to capture the DVF creative process from entirely new perspectives.
Soon you’ll get a glimpse into what it’s like to design, prepare and experience the DVF show at New York Fashion Week through Diane’s eyes and a few other views.
The short film ‘DVF through Glass’ will be released on Thursday, September 13 on the DVF Google+ page (google.com/+dvf) and Google’s YouTube channel (youtube.com/google). We will also post exclusive images from Glass to the DVF Google+ page live during the show. #DVFthroughGlass
“I am so excited to introduce Glass to the fashion world and use this revolutionary technology to give everyone a unique perspective into fashion.” – Diane von Furstenberg

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?
