Handbag Economics: The designer cost of Google Glass

 | By  |  2 comments

Google Glass has gone on sale in the UK and it's not cheap. Will they ever be cool enough to be worth the price tag, or would you rather just buy a designer bag?

Google Glass hey. What happened there? It was supposed to do to wearable tech what Alexa Chung did for dungarees. But instead, it has all fallen a bit flat.

Their creepy design, teamed with over a year of endless teasing - means we all just don't really care any more. Sorry Google, but we don't.

One of the biggest criticisms Google have faced is the issue of appearance as they seemingly forgot the whole 'wearable' part of wearable tech.

However in a bid to remedy that, the search engine giant recently brought on Ray-Ban manufacturer Luxottica to produce the specs, and now Ivy Ross will be heading up the team whose CV includes Calvin Klein and Gap.

Even Diane Von Furstenberg has got involved, and it's still just a bit lame.

The glasses have just gone on sale in the UK to the tech adoring public for a whopping £1000, and only for a day. Just to string it out that little bit more.

According to our Handbag Economics, instead of Google Glass, you could buy this Saint Laurent mini duffle bag instead and still have some change left for a digital camera or a lot of chocolate...depending on your priorities.
