Google Glass Almost Looks Normal Now

We figured Google had to have plans to make Glass a little more palatable.

When The Simpsons makes you look bad you know it’s time to move, because someone wrote Sunday’s jokes months ago and they still felt fresh (especially after the terribly racist “Comic Book Guy Gets a Japanese Girlfriend” episode).

Here’s CNN‘s take on the newer, friendlier Glass:

Today the upgrade scored a New York Times writeup thanks to its new prescription partnership with insurer VSP and a designer interview in WWD (subscription req’d), but most bloggers just used the occasion to come up with new ways to make fun of the product.

Given that this is Google, we feel like one day Glass will become so well-integrated with our eyewear that it won’t be noticeable—and then we will feel stupid.

For now, we’ll just point and laugh.
