Vuzix Wrap Fashion Shades probably won’t make video eyewear glamorous

To be honest, we’re not entirely sure that a shortage of colors are what’s holding back adoption of video eyewear, but Vuzix seem particularly excited by the idea of different versions of their Vuzix Wrap model.  The snap-in red, blue, amber and mirror-finish lenses will, reckons the CEO of Vuzix, allow you to “seamlessly complement any mood, personality or outfit.”

Of course, while everyone else will be admiring your glamorous shades, you’ll be enjoying heads-up video.  The new lenses – which will be sold individually, for $19.99 a set, or as a bundle for $49.95 for all four – snap into any model in the Vuzix Wrap series, and are available now.
