Sourcebits is a software development firm that felt the current design for Google Glass was too geeky even for them. So they decided to put together a team of designers, illustrators, and 3D modelers to create a more fashion-friendly version of the glasses.

Looking more like something you could work into an existing wardrobe, the team have made a few significant changes.

The first was to redistribute the weight of the glasses. Instead of having all the technology focused on one side which made the frames bulky – they divided it up across both sides, allowing for a much thinner product.

A dual touchpad system has also been incorporated into their design, meaning their version of Google Glass would be accessible to both right- and left-handed users.

Showing that the technology has more appeal than just those in the tech crowd, the redesign will come as a welcome sight to those who were worried about sacrificing their image for the sake of Google Glass.
