Do-It-Yourself Glass Frames Beat Google's $225 Frames?
As you know, Google released prescription frames and now some have actually received them and been trying them out. They aren't cheap, they cost $225 and you have about five styles to choose from. Better yet, they don't fold, like normal Google Glass, making it a pain to manage. Geoffrey Brackman posted pictures of how he looks in the new frames on Google+ .

He posted a picture on Google+ and best part, his frames fold! Here is a side by side picture, and honestly, a bit of color and they look awesome compared to the $225 Google frames:
