Robin Raskin, tech entrepreneur, is wearing her creation, Faux Glass, and Fred Fishkin, a tech journalist, is sporting Google Glass.
Leave it to Robin Raskin, a long time journalist turned entrepreneur, to create the most hysterical tech/fashion statement of all time. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw her Crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for Faux Glass.
What a hoot. I’ve known Robin for decades. She never ceases to amaze. Although she is only seven years younger than me, I feel like her mother. Her boundless energy and never ending creativity is that of a 21 year old. I am constantly in awe.
Faux Glass has been designed to look like Google Glass but in reality is a $20 pair of glasses with some LED lights. Robin is raising money on Indiegogo to bring Faux Glass to market so the masses can have the opportunity to look cool. Why should the folks who can afford the augmented reality glasses at $1,500 be the only ones to look special?
Robin said “It’s no faux pas that we designed these toy glasses to look ‘faux real.’ The reaction from people in the know has been hysterically funny.” The official press release says, “Faux Glass lights up in amazing colors, includes a magnifier and spotlight, and has a series of commands that don’t do much of anything but bring a smile to anyone who sees them.”
Faux Glass will also be available for sale on the Faux Glass website in December. Check Robin out. She is an editor, author and tech expert. She founded, Living in Digital Times, (LIDT), a team of technophiles, who bring together top experts and the latest innovations that intersect lifestyle and technology. LIDT produces conferences and expos at CES as well as other times throughout the year.
