Google Glass also comes with Prescription Solution

When news of Google Glass hit the market, it seemed that as if this magical and futuristic device is only for fun loving youth with no problem as for their eye sight.

But thanks fully, Project Google on Google+ has come up with the news that the Google Glass is also for people, young and old, with an eye sight prescription.

The clarification at Goog le+ reads:
The Glass design is modular, so you will be able to add frames and lenses that match your prescription. We understand how important this is and we've been working hard on it. Here’s a picture of +Greg Priest-Dorman, a member of the Glass team and an early pioneer in wearable computing, wearing one of the prototypes we’re testing. 
We’re still perfecting the design for prescription frames. Although the frames won’t be ready for the Explorer Edition’s release, hang in there -- you can expect to see them later this year.

Well that said, the readers of the post are already apprehensive and have asked some pertinent questions:
  • Is Glass going to be integral to the frame -- so that you are limited to the frame style(s) and costs that Google endorse -- or will it be something that can be added on to any prescription frame?
  • Can we use the explorer edition with frames after the frames come out? Or would we need to get another Glass unit?
  • Every version I have seen has the screen on the right eye. will the "modular design" allow it to go over the left eye instead?
We will wait a response form Google on this.

So if I have the money to buy the Google Glass as and when it hits the shelf, I am happy that I can have it and still read the newspaper or else type this post. But for that I must be $1,500 rich!!
