    Google's New Designer Frames Try to Make Google Glass Cooler


    Google Glass is one of those polarizing products. Some folks like it, while some hate it. We are a bit skeptical it will gain much market traction right now, although some version of the concept will probably eventually go mainstream. Of course, Google is trying their best to help propel Google Glass toward that eventuality, and their latest attempt adds some new designer frames to entice the public.

    While the aesthetic of these designer frames is a big improvement, these designs also carry an even more premium price tag. Getting a new set of Google Glass with these frames is even more expensive than the OG $1,500 price of Google Glass. Here's a quote with a few more details,

    Thanks to a partnership with Diane Von Furstenberg, Google Glass will soon be available in stylish frames and lenses. There are five new frames and eight new shades available. The collection will be available through Net-A-Porter and the Google Glass store starting on June 23.

    This is the first designer mashup with Google Glass. Through a partnership with Italian optical wear giant, Luxottica, Ray-Ban and Oakley-branded frames are also on tap. Google Glass Aviators, anyone?

    The Google Glass hardware used in these frames is unchanged. Itís the same hardware, albeit color-matched with the designer frames, currently available for $1,500. The Diane Von Furstenberg label doesnít come cheap. The DVF-branded shades will cost $1,620.
    What do you guys think? Is the Google Glass concept too far ahead of its time? Is this an idea that would make more sense a few years down the road, or is it something we should push forward now?
