Isabelle Olsson is a Senior Industrial Designer at Google, and apparently, she's a member of the Project Glass team responsible for designing Sergey Brin's futuristic heads-up display. Today, she took to Google+ to answer a burning question: how would the system work for people who already require a pair of glasses to see? The short answer is the mockup you see above. Find the longer answer below:

We ideally want Project Glass to work for everyone, and we're experimenting with designs that are meant to be extendable to different types of frames. Many of our team members wear glasses, too, so it’s definitely something we’re thinking about.

Head over to our Google+ source link to ask Isabelle any other such questions.
