Google Glass joins forces with Luxottica Group, makers of Oakley, Ray-Ban, other high end eyewear

I think this is a logical move on Google’s part. Certainly this will improve the look of Google Glass, but there’s only so much you can do without reducing the footprint of the Glass module itself.

And if the module shrinks to become unnoticeable, that’s another problem entirely. Is that where we’re headed? To an invisible Google Glass?

    Of course. And there’ll never be a shortage of assholes to abuse its capabilities.

    yes ultimately the Glass electronics will eventually be able to squeeze into the arm of a pair of glasses. So at some point soon in the future, anyone with eyeglasses or sunglasses could be wearing Glass or something like Glass.

    Luxottica makes over 80% of the glasses in the world.

    it is a logical move. I’m waiting for them to actually reduce the module before I jump on this train fully but if I get hooked up with a pair I sure will use it while I’m out fishing. Lol

    Inexorably and inevitably, yes.

    Get used to the idea now.

    If it’s not Google, it’ll be someone else; it’s not about “Google” particularly.

    Cameras are already small enough to be effectively undetectable in casual environments, and the display portion is – in the case of someone wearing glasses – close if not already there.

    The current vogue – which I cannot understand aesthetically – for thick, bulky frames makes this even easier to accomplish.
