If you’re looking for something to blow all your money, Google Glass has landed in South Africa, and who really needs food anyway!?
Google’s impressive augmented reality headset will set you back R26,999, but Takealot’s Co-CEO Willem Van Biljon isn’t under any illusions that the price-tag leans towards the hardcore tech enthusiasts.
“We expect to sell the product to a highly engaged niche of technologists who will jump at the opportunity to be the first in the market to own Google Glass,” said Van Biljon.
Google Glass has been implemented in some pretty incredible ways,such as the Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, which recently gave some unwell kids, who are unable to leave the hospital, the opportunity to virtually “visit” the Houston Zoo with Google Glass.
It was also reported in March that Google has teamed up with Luxottica Group to bolster the design and distribution of the high-tech eyewear. The Luxottica Group is the owner of Ray-Ban, Oakley, Vogue Eyewear, Persol, Oliver Peoples, Alain Mikli, and Arnetteto, among other brands.
