Google(s goog) has unveiled a series of new frames for its wearable Glass device. The Titanium Collection frames cost $225 on top of the $1,500 initial price tag for Google Glass (that’s for “explorers”; Glass will go on more widespread sale this year), and mean people can use the device with prescription lenses – optical health insurance provider VSP will cut lenses for the system and has agreed to offer partial reimbursements to its customers. It also brings Glass closer to the non-geek fashion zone: there are 4 styles of frame, each of which comes in 8 color options, and Google will also offer $150 clip-on sunglasses. Third-party outfits such as Rochester Optical have already started showing off prescription lenses for Glass.
