New York (AFP) – Google Glass is being integrated into prescription frames from the U.S. tech giant, a move that could broaden the appeal of the Internet-connected eyewear.

Google announced Tuesday it was making a version of the eyewear for people who wear prescription glasses, addressing one of the concerns about the new product.

“If we had a nickel for every time someone has asked about prescription lenses for Glass… well, we’d have a lot of nickels,” said a Google Glass blog posting.

“So we want you to be the first to know that the Titanium Collection is here, with a handful of new styles for Glass so you can make it your own. Whether you wear prescription glasses or just want a new look, we’ve got four feather-light titanium frames designed just for you.”

Google Glass is currently being tested by a small number of “explorers” who paid $1,500 each for the eyewear. It is expected to get a wider release sometime this year.

During the testing phase, developers are creating apps for the eyewear, which can range from getting weather reports to sharing videos to playing games.

A federal district judge in New York ruled Monday that the U.S. Postal Service has to treat election mail as a priority, another loss for Postmaster General Louis DeJoy in the courts.

This came in a suit brought by several candidates for office and New York voters against Donald Trump and DeJoy.
