“We believe the challenge of convincing consumers to wear computers on their face is a fashion problem as much as it is a technology problem,” said UBS analyst Fred Speirs of the logic of the tie-up between Google and Luxottica.

The special glasses can be bought by U.S. residents for $1,500 plus tax, according to Google’s website. To reach a wider consumer market, they would have to be put on sale for a much lower price.

Luxottica is the largest eyewear company in the world which manufactures glasses for Oakley, Persol, Prada, Ray-Ban and Versace. It also owns retailers including LensCrafters, Sunglasses Hut and Pearle Vision, giving Google the ability to showcase its new designs in brick-and-mortar stores.
