Google Glass uses a monitor in the corner of an eyeglass frame to display information, Internet content or messages.  It also includes a camera for hands-free photo-taking and video recording.  At this point, Google has not made Glass available for sale to the public. Instead, it has sold Glass to a select group of more than 10,000 testers known as "Explorers."

At last check, shares of Google were climbing almost 1% to $1,167.44, while shares of Luxottica were up more than 3% at $55.65 on the news.
