Google, Ray-Ban maker Eye Glass deal
Italy’s Luxottica said on Tuesday its two major brands, Ray-Ban and Oakley, would be part of the deal, but gave no financial or other details. Google Glass is a small stamp-sized screen attached to a pair of spectacle frames. It can record video, access email, and retrieve information from the Web by connecting wirelessly to a user’s cell phone.
Luxottica, the maker of Ray-Ban sunglasses, has struck a deal to design, develop and distribute glasses based on Google’s Internet-connected Glass eyewear, potentially bringing the new technology to a wider market.
