Glasses-wearers can't wear Google Glass [Update]

As it turns out, people who currently wear glasses as part of every day life can't use Google Glass, due to the technical design only accounting for people with regular vision. CNET sent a message to Google's Jay Nancarrow asking whether current spec-wearers could use Google Glass, and received a response saying that there is currently no solution for people who require glasses.

However, there is good news for the significant portion of the population who have to wear glasses, as Nancarrow mentioned that Google are "preparing additional models that are designed to work for people who require prescription lenses". While the company doesn't have a time frame for the release of these models, it will allow more people access to Google Glass when it becomes available.

For those of you with regular vision or contact lenses, which should work with Google Glass, the system should be available for purchase before the end of the year for around $1,500. Google Glass overlays information directly into your regular field-of-vision, and could be the "next big thing" as far as life-enhancement tools go. 

Update: Google has posted over on their Project Glass blog at G+ that they already have a glasses wearing prototype in use.
