Rochester Optical will be joining the growing list of fashion companies to work with Google Glass, with the most recent developments coming from designer Diane von Furstenberg with her DVF | Made for Glass collection which contains both frames and sunglasses. Rochester Optical produces sun lenses that attach to Google Glass when combined with Rochester Optical’s smart frames. The non-prescription tinted and mirrored lenses aim to add more style and function to Google Glass, and continue the growing trend of making smart glasses more fashionable and accessible to a larger demographic.
The Glass accessories come in 14 tinted colors and mirrored finishes, and when combined with Rochester Optical’s smart frame variety provide a wide amount of customization for each customer. Patrick Ho, CEO of Rochester Optical goes on to explain “The wearer can customize our sun lenses to his or her liking and express individuality – bringing style and art to the technology.”
