Frame accents come in various colors to match your existing Glass hardware

Google swiftly unveiled its new line of custom frames and shades for Google Glass last night, and now existing Explorers have the chance get their hands on them. By heading to the Glass store, where you could previously pick up things like earbuds and replacement shades, Explorers can pick up one of the four new frames for a cool $225 each, or new shades for $150 each.

The frames themselves all come in black, but you select an accompanying accent color to match your glass hardware. Although we suppose you can technically choose any color if you're considering mixing-and-matching. The two new styles of shades are currently out of stock, but all four frames are ready to order. Shipping is free (oh what a deal!) and the orders ship within 5-7 days according to the order page.

Are any Explorers out there considering Titanium Collection frames? At this steep price they aren't the simplest way to customize your Glass hardware, especially if you don't need prescription lenses.

Glass Explorers can now buy Titanium Collection frames for $225 each


I assume these are just style things or can eye clinics customize lens to fit these?

Google is supposedly working on a system to get eyeglass providers to fit prescription lenses to them. Its not all ironed out quite yet from the sounds of it.

They have a list of "Preferred Providers" on their site:

But also say

"While we recommend our Preferred Providers, most eyecare providers should be equipped to replace the lenses on your Glass frame. Make sure you bring your Glass, frames, and the packaging with you on your visit."

$2k after tax, not including new lenses. Ouch.

Having them on regular glasses seems to make them a lot more socially acceptable, IMHO, but that $1950 price after taxes and a pair of ear buds is a killer for me. I keep getting to checkout and my eyes just glass over. Hahaha.

Yeah I enjoy the tech toys, but once they start breaking certain price barriers, I just start seeing many other ways that I could spend that money. But it would be nice to have a pair of these.

I love how they have BlackBerry-borrowed names like Bold and Curve! :)

Just ordered a pair of the Bold ones. Can't wait for them to arrive. Now I can finally wear my Glass to Hot Yoga class. Lol.

Not until the tech is invisible, or nearly so, do I think this will really take off. It's just too "taped-glasses-nerd" looking. I do however appreciate the sacrifice glass users are making for the rest of us as they march into the brave new world of heads-up computing.
