What Would Google Glass Look Like If It Was Designed By Prada?

In a script that could have come out of “The Devil Wears Prada”, German tech site Curved.de has come up with an interesting thought: What would Google Glass look like if it had been designed by Prada? Trust those Europeans to think such a thought.

Curved thinks “Google Glass is unquestionably the queen of wearables – but the spacey design makes it equally the Holy Grail of nerds.” Indeed it does!

Perhaps that’s why Google recently signed a deal with Luxottica – the world’s largest manufacturer of eyewear – which counts the following as clients: Bvlgari, Burberry, Chanel, D & G, Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY, Emporio Armani, Giorgio Armani, Miu Miu, Polo, Ralph Lauren, Paul Smith, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, Versace and many more.

Curved decided to come up with a few ideas of their own. The result was based on an actual Prada design, the “Absolutely Ornate”.


However, they think they’ve made some improvements:

• Wireless charging through the glasses case
• A more symmetrical design with a camera in the middle of the glasses
• Batteries are integrated into both temples, not just one side
• A Pico projector used as the display screen
• A ‘Lattice design’ for the menu

Personally I could totally see myself wearing these around town…
