Luxottica and Intel both focused on smart eyewear
Wednesday, December 3 2014 | 00 h 00 min | Agreements and Partnerships
Luxottica and Intel Corporation have formed a multi-year alliance to fuse “smart” technology with luxury and sports eyewear.
The first product to come out of the collaboration is expected to launch in 2015. The two companies hope to create frames that integrate a limited number of apps, adding real value for the wearer, without having to compromise on design.
The engineers and developers will work in California, whereas all design will be done in Italy. Part of the projects will be completed in Asia.
The agreement in no way takes away from the partnership that exists between Luxottica and Google for the development of Google Glass, a new version of which will be released in 2015.
