Google Glasses have had a bad reputation for not looking like the most fashionable tech accessory, but now that Google and Luxottica have teamed up, all of this could change.

The fashion brand and tech powerhouse are now working together to create Google Glasses that actually look good. This could be a game-changer in both industries, forcing fashion designers to upgrade their looks with more practical digital features, and opening up the technology sector to even more wearable software. Either way this is good news for those who like the idea of Google Glasses, but would never be caught dead wearing a pair. With the Google and Luxottica partnership, it might not be far fetched to see 50% of people wearing glasses in the dark next year.
