Apple has been trying to get Google to collaborate with its eyewash technology for some time, but it’s been mostly a sideshow.
The tech is currently locked in talks with Google, which wants to bring the tech to market, but there’s been no concrete progress, and Google hasn’t shared any plans.
Now Apple’s finally taking things to the next level with a new product called Glass.
The product, which was released this morning, is basically a pair of eyewashed sunglasses that you can use to view your notifications, but are actually pretty hard to break.
The glasses have a new faceplate that covers the lenses, and it’s designed to be waterproof and be easy to wipe down, as well as to be easy for users to get into and out of.
It’ll be available for $149.99 in September, and the company says the glasses can be used to watch Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube videos for up to an hour without taking them off.
They also offer support for Apple Watch and iOS 7.0.
The Glass glasses are designed to fit the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, which means they will likely be compatible with the devices, but they will also be compatible for all other iPhones and iPads running iOS 7 or later.
It’s unclear if the glasses will be available in stores or on Kickstarter, though we wouldn’t be surprised to see them made available via a special deal.
There’s a lot of buzz surrounding Glass, and we’re hoping Apple and other tech giants will be able to get their products on the market sooner rather than later.
What do you think about Apple and the Glass glasses?
Are they a step toward Glass being a full-fledged wearable device, or are they a little too limited for Apple to handle?
