Good news for those of us with imperfect vision.
We, like everyone else, have a lot of questions about Google's Project Glass. Though Google this month invited people to share feedback based on a video that showed how the product might work, Project Glass is still in development, so we don't know an awful lot about it. Still, it seems the search giant is eager to set the record straight on at least one issue that many people seem to be wondering about, and that is whether or not those who already have glasses will be able to use the Google specs.
Google's Isabelle Olsson today confirmed that it's working on several ideas when it comes to using Project Glass with prescription glasses. Google apparently saw this question regarding compatibility for glasses-wearers more than once following its request for feedback.
"Here's a question I saw a few times: 'I use prescription glasses. Will this work for me?'" Olsson wrote. "We ideally want Project Glass to work for everyone, and we're experimenting with designs that are meant to be extendable to different types of frames," she explained. "Many of our team members wear glasses, too, so it's definitely something we're thinking about."
Olsson posted the photo above to show how the device might work with prescription glasses but it sounds like Google isn't even close to settling on a design for the bespectacled masses. That said, it's nice that the company is thinking of us.
