I found a really amazing set of sunglasses outside of a church that allow me to see the world for what it really is. The problem though: I just got an invite to the Google Glass beta but I don't want to stop wearing these sunglasses. Are there any online guides or tutorial videos for incorporating Google Glass into other frames?

I think your best bet is to convince other people to put the glasses on.

Obey. Consume. Conform. Stay asleep. Marry, and reproduce. Submit. Watch wrestling. No thought. Work 8 Hours. No independent thought. I also suggest Zenni Optical.

I don't like this one bit. You put these glasses on, it's like a drug, but you come down real hard.

I would try and see if your friends might want to try on the shades. You may have to wrestle them for it, though.

I think sugru would stick that google glass right on those shades and look snazzy too.

Do you have any bubblegum? Chewing bubblegum could possibly help you figure out what to do. If you happen to not have any with you, I have alternate suggestions.

I think you're gonna have a hard time jailbreaking the Google glasses without invalidating the warranty. They seem to have put NO THOUGHT into extensibility which is annoying, but you kinda have to SUBMIT to their T&Cs.
