First thing I noticed about the frames is that I was very pleased with their look and felt that the images online represented the look pretty well. What totally blew me away however was just how thin they are. If I didn’t understand the desire to make an incredibly thin and light frame I would have almost thought Google was skimping on materials, but they aren’t. The frames I guess are made from titanium and as such don’t need to be as thick to retain strength. While this is totally a good thing, I have gotten used to heavier frames so there may be some adjustment here. Also, it is true as many are complaining that the arms do not fold. I understand the complaint, but this is a beta product after all and I am fine with it.
I did attach my #TeamTangerine Google Glass to the frames briefly and the transfer over was a little tricky but not too difficult. I felt that Glass fit very well onto the frames and were comfortable to put on and wear for a few minutes. The prism seemed to sit a hair lower than I might have liked, but overall I am VERY pleased with the fit and finish on first glance. The case that comes with it however leaves something to be desired for sure. The frames can move around some and the screwdriver that comes with the frames to attach glass with sits right inside the case in a small elastic sleeve. I am always worried the frames will jostle around and scratch the lenses on the little screwdriver.
As soon as I get my #TeamCharcoal Glass in later this week (hoping it ships tomorrow) I will fit it to my Google Titanium Frames so I can get a photo of me wearing them to submit to Rochestor Optical to finally get my prescription lenses. Of course that will also give me a longer period of wearing the new frames to see how they do after a few miles. This too I shall report back here.
Are you a glasses wearing Google Glass Explorer and if so, what have you done to marry both your glasses and Google Glass?
