Could you be wearing this in 10 years?
Facebook’s head of hardware Andrew “Boz” Bosworth said that the company has just partnered with Luxottica, the largest sunglass brand in America, to created glasses that can take photos and videos.
According to CNBC, Bosworth’s announcement came after the launch of Ray-Ban Stories, Facebook’s smart glasses collaboration with Luxottica.
“I think in 10 years it’ll be like, ‘Of course. Why don’t your glasses take pictures? That’s just weird,’” Bosworth stated. “It really has that opportunity to turn the corner on that and move things forward.”
This isn’t the first time someone has tried to launch smart glasses. In 2012 Google attempted to launch their own eyeglass tech branded as “Google Glass” and caught immense blowback from critics who said it was an invasion of privacy.
Mark Zuckerberg and Rocco Basilico, Chief Wearables Officer at EssilorLuxottica introduce #RayBanStories – the new way to capture, share and listen.
