Google Glass x Luxottica Partnership
Google has announced a new partnership with the Luxottica Group, the biggest eyewear conglomerate in the world, to bring Google Glass to the masses. This will bring Luxottica’s expertise on manufacturing, distribution and retail into the Glass mix, allowing Google to make the technology available in more styles at scale. Luxottica’s reach from its 5,000+ optical and sun retail stores in the US will also help make Glass available to more people in more places, hopefully at a more affordable price as well. You’ll eventually see Glass on iconic frames from some of Luxottica’s vast brand portfolio that includes Ray-Ban, Oakley, Vogue-Eyewear, Persol, Oliver Peoples and Alain Mikli.
