Glass in the news. And while Google has yet to offer much in terms of when Glass will be available for the general public, they do seem to be inching closer towards that time. But for now, there are still some key issues that need to be worked out. One example here are the prescription frames. But with that in mind, it looks like one Google employee may have shown those off a bit early.

Wearables seem to be a growing trend lately. But within the space there are different options. There are fitness trackers and smartwatches as well as glasses. The big name in the glass space is Google, with Glass. But there are others such as Vuzix who recently began accepting pre-orders for the M100 from non-developers. While those are two examples, we also have Lumus.
Google has earlier announced a refresh of its Google Glass hardware that will be offered not only to new applicants but even to old users as well. Some of those new units have landed already into the hands of some individuals, but the invitation to swap out old devices for new ones has just arrived now for existing Explorers.
a challenger to Google Glass. We did spend a bit of hands-on time with the glasses in January during CES, however there wasn't much chatter otherwise.

Google Glass has always had one question looming: what about those who already wear glasses? Two frames is a bit weird, especially when one is little more than a frame. Also, how would the screen work with those with vision issues? A report from the Wall Street Journal claims Google is on the road to fixing that issue.
