Functionality be damned, these are high-fashion times apparently and Google went all out over the weekend showing off its wrap-around Project Glass computer glasses at New York’s Fashion Week. Fashion mogul Diane von Furstenberg utilized the glasses in her show and a host of models ran them down the runway. The actual glasses you may recall can stream data to the lenses, and feature a built-in camera and a number of other high-tech features. Here’s a look at the big show.
