Our Google Glass Concept

Google Glass is all the rage. From tech bloggers to models, everyone's been talking about Glass and how it'll change the face of mobile computing. After Google released Glass everyone was talking about how Glass will change the face of mobile computing.

We recently received our pair of Google Glass at Sourcebits and we found the design to be lacking. Armed with a couple of designers and 3D modelers, we were on a mission to make a better looking, more functional piece of hardware than Google. Lofty? Maybe, but we think we did it.


Our 3D Concept Renders

At SourcebitsRahul Nihalani and I lead and worked with a team of designers from concept sketches to the final renders. Being the Creative Director on the project, I was responsible in brainstorming, concept sketches and working with the 3D team on the final output. The team took a week from concept to final renders.

One of his main gripes with the current Google Glass (2013) design was that it was unbalanced. The HuffPost quoted him saying,

Google Glass right now has an uneven weight distribution because all the tech is packed on one side whereas we have split it to both frame handles which logically made sense to reduce the thickness. Dual touch pads are an added benefit to cater to both right and left handed users.
