What's Happening in Wearables: Wearable Tech Glasses are all the Rage Right Now

Gone are the days when glasses were just glasses. Thanks to Google Glass, simple frames and lenses are no longer the in thing. Now, if your glasses aren't über-high tech, you're just not cool enough.

Thankfully, there are a lot of glasses that combine both tech and style. You can improve your eyesight or protect your eyes from the sun with the epic, high-tech glasses below. They may be a bit pricey, but it's worth it! Glass can now do things like:

  • Surf the internet
  • Track your movements via GPS (just don't give your wife/GF the password!)
  • Play music from your phone
  • Track activity and calorie burning
  • Snap pictures/shoot video
  • Serve as a calculator, stopwatch, compass, and watch
  • Track heart rate
  • Improve eyesight (the real reason the glasses were invented, of course!)

Topping our faves, the glasses that started it all: Google Glass. It's not just a high-tech computing accessory; these lenses come with prescription lenses free of charge.  And that's cool.
