Most smartglasses and other similar wearables may offer a lot in terms of features, but they lack in the design department. While fashionable smartglasses can be already purchased, none of them comes from an alliance as strong as the one formed by Intel and Luxottica. These two giants announced earlier today "a multiyear R&D collaboration to fuse premium, luxury and sports eyewear with smart technology."
According to the official press release, "This strategic alliance will push the boundaries of research and development to anticipate what smart technology for eyewear will look like in the future." The main goal is to produce "fashion-forward products that are meaningful and desirable to consumers." It is also worth reminding that Luxottica announced a partnership with Google back in March 2014.
Luxottica is widely known for the Ray-Ban, Oakley, and Persol brands. They also make sunglasses branded Versace, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, and more. The company currently controls more than 80 percent of the major eyewear brands in the world.
The first Intel-Luxottica product is expected to arrive as soon as 2015. Unfortunately, there are no details about it available yet.
