Bloomberg Businessweek challenged us to create our interpretation of Google GlassWhile remaining true to the technical components of Glass, we opted for a more aesthetic driven design. We wanted people to feel comfortable both wearing the glasses and in their interactions with others. 

Here’s how we did it:

  • Moved the battery from behind the right ear to the body of the left temple to create a more comfortable/balanced eyeglass frame.
  • Used a combination of wood, steel and angular lines to bring the classic into future form.
  • Designed the frame brow to hide the bulk of the viewfinder, making the technical components less demanding. 
  • Added a lens cover to mask the in-your-face camera.
  • Built speakers into the design of each temple for optimal sound.  
  • Replaced the bulky viewer with a translucent film display that can be mounted to any Rx lens. A small projector under the right temple would illuminate the display.
