Google Glass is one of the most ambitious concept-to-reality projects we’ve seen in quite some time but the glasses were far from stylish. The brand is looking to tackle this task next as they unveil the Google Glass Titanium Eyewear Collection. There are four new frame shapes, and all of them will work with prescription lenses. To ensure they were offering something that style-conscious consumers would wear, Google teamed up with Maui Jim for the three sunglass options. All of the new styles utilize second generation Google Glass hardware, which means they are all equipped with the mono earbud.

Classic eyewear label Ray-Ban have worked alongside optical illusion masters Brusspup to promote their Clubmaster line of sunglasses through an anamorphic illusion video. An anamorphic illusion is made with images of objects which have skewed perspectives, making them look normal from a particular angle.

A Telescope For Your Eye

A group of DARPA-funded researchers have come up with a telescopic contact lens that can offer the viewer up to 2.8x zoom. Led by University of California professor Joseph Ford, the team were able to implement tightly-fitting mirror surfaces into the 1mm thick lens which, as a result, can now offer dual modality. Through the use of liquid crystals, the user can easily switch between the magnifying portion of the contact lens along the rim, or the unmagnified portion in the centre. While these new lenses are an incredible achievement, it may be a while until they become available to the consumer as the material currently used isn’t gas permeable, so the patient wouldn’t be able to wear them for extended periods of time. There are also still some issues with the quality of the zoomed image.

The Mayfourteeth Look Book.


Introducing the Spring/Summer 2012 Mayfourteenth Eyewear collection. The 2012 frames were inspired by the tranquility of island life and wanderlust, and draw from elements resemblant to the striking patterns and colors of the beaches and jungles of coastal South America.


The new campaign was photographed by Dustin Aksland at his Manhattan studio and inspired by Ishla Grande and the coastal bungalows of Angra Dos Reis, Brazil.

The new collection uses a contrasting color palette of chocolate browns and carmel yellows inspired by the delicious torte and dulce de leche from the Villa do Abrao desert carts, mixed with moody blues and crystals reminiscent of the sun beaming off of the islands clear waters. Subtle tortoise and jaguar markings continue the theme of deviated patterns from nature.

Continuing with the theme of contemporary classic, Mayfourteenth’s delivery focuses both on texture and form. Thicker, bigger, and bolder frames all wearable from summer through autumn.  Mayfourteenth Eyewear is handmade using vintage Mazzucchelli acetate and fitted with optical quality CR-39 lens.  Made with careful hands and designed with sophisticated style.
