google glass reimagined by sourcebits

after receiving a trial pair of google glasses, sourcebits, a software development firm, felt the aesthetic of the wearable device was lacking. a team of designers, illustrators, and 3D modellers adapted the original design into a fashionable frame that they believe will have mass appeal. their take on the lenses could be easily incorporated into a contemporary wardrobe, calming critics who think the existing version is alienating and dorky.
currently, google concentrates its glass technology on one side of the device, creating an uneven distribution of weight. sourcebits divided up the software parts to fit on both handles, consequently reducing the thickness of the frames. a dual touch pad system is also incorporated into their redesign, allowing the interface to be accessible for both left and right hand users. google glasses are quickly gaining momentum in a wider spectrum of consumer industries. for a racier look at where the trend is leading, take a look at our post on the first ever google glass porn starring james dean and our original coverage of the eyewear here.
