Google reportedly talking to Warby Parker to make Glass more fashionable
Warby Parker is an eyewear startup that gathered $38 million in Series B funding back in September of last year, and is in the business of selling trendy eyeglasses. Neither Google nor Warby Parker have commented on the rumor, but this would make sense for Google. While Google has been getting much better at software and hardware design, wearable fashion is a completely different game than designing hardware that goes in your pocket, so it couldn't hurt to get some outside assistance.
The word is that Google is experimenting with different styles for the frames of Google Glass as well as adding on sunglass lenses or even prescription lenses to the product. After seeing the new demo video for Google Glass, and learning that Google is opening up another round of sales to enthusiasts (meaning $1500 for a pair of Glass), it would be interesting to see some variation in styles.
