…Or so says the New York Times. I just like the idea of a Google Glass Monacle.

In a sign of how acute the challenge is for Google, the company is negotiating with Warby Parker, an e-commerce start-up company that sells trendy eyeglasses, to help it design more fashionable frames, according to two people briefed on the negotiations who were not authorized to speak publicly because the partnership has not been made official. Google and Warby Parker declined to comment.

It is pretty clear that Google will need some serious design effort to get these things to go mainstream.
