Luxottica, the maker of Ray-Ban sunglasses, has struck a deal to design, develop and distribute glasses based on Google's Internet-connected Glass eyewear, potentially bringing the new technology to a wider market.
Google Glass is a small stamp-sized screen attached to a pair of spectacle frames. It can record video, access email, and retrieve information from the web by connecting wirelessly to a user's cell phone.
Italy's Luxottica said on March 25/14  its two major brands, Ray-Ban and Oakley, would be part of the deal, but gave no financial or other details.The new glasses would be ready to hit the market in 2015.
Many technology experts believe wearable computers such as Google Glass will be the next big market for consumer devices, and could mirror the way smartphones evolved from personal computers.
However, some express concern over issues such as privacy intrusion, data security and the safety of wearing internet-connected glasses while performing other tasks.

The special glasses can be bought by U.S. residents for $1,500 US plus tax, according to Google's website. To reach a wider consumer market, they would have to be put on sale for a much lower price.
In January, Google struck a deal with VSP, the largest optical insurer in North America, which will provide consumers with subsidized frames and prescription lenses for its Glass.
