Google Glass 2 Will Be Compatible With Prescription Glasses


A new version of Google Glass is coming and current ownerswill be eligible to "swap out" their existing Google Glass units for the new version.

Later this year "Glass Explorers" will have a one-time option to swap out their existing Glass for a new one. This hardware update will allow your Glass to work with future lines of shades and prescription frames, and Google will also include a mono earbud.

Google will be offering a one-time optional swap out for Explorers who purchased their device before October 28, 2013.

In addition, Google has been experimenting with ways to expand the Explorer Program. So over the next few weeks, the roughly 10,000 Glass owners who began testing the device earlier this year will have the opportunity to invite three friends to join the program. They'll be able to buy Glass online and can have it shipped to their home.

The recipients of the invitations will have to pay $1,500 apiece for Glass, which works like a smartphone except that it's worn on the head like a pair of spectacles. The device includes a speaker, a hand-free camera and a thumbnail-sized display screen attached to the frame above the right eye.

Google also plans to release a less-expensive model of Glass next year. The precise pricing and timing of the mass-market version still hasn't been determined.

Glass has generated concerns among critics who worry that its hidden camera could invade the privacy of people who don't realize that video or pictures are being taken of them. Others are concerned that Glass will thrust more technological distractions into society by making it even easier for people to be online at all times.

Google says it believes Glass will promote more meaningful interaction by giving people less reason to glance down at a smartphone screen every few minutes.
