Try On Five Pairs of Glasses for Free at Home

You can save a boatload of money by buying eyeglasses online, but it’s a bit of a gamble because you can’t actually try them on. That is, until now. Previously mentioned Warby Parker will now ship you five pairs to try for five days, no obligation to buy.

Select any 5 pairs of glasses that you’d like to try and the company will send them to you for free. (For those wondering, the program is available for contiguous US residents only.) You can try them on in the comfort of your home and ask your friends and family for their opinions or get feedback from Warby Parker experts on Facebook over the next five days.

Send the glasses back (return shipping is free), and if you like any of them, order the frame(s) with your prescription. Glasses cost $95 including prescription lenses.

As an added feel good bonus, for every pair Warby Parker sells, the company donates a pair of glasses to a person in need.

Try On New Glasses in Warby Parker’s Virtual Booth

Try On New Glasses in Warby Parker's Virtual BoothBuying glasses online can save you tons of money but the downside is you don’t get to try the glasses on and see how they look on your face. Upload a picture to Warby Parker and see different styles on your face.

Last year we shared out exploits in buying super cheap glasses online—it was awesome and we got great glasses for only $8!—but as we noted then it’s a gamble, albeit a cheap one, to buy glasses without trying them on.

Eyeglass retailer Warby Parker has an excellent virtual try on booth on their site which alleviates the can’t-try-it-on shoppers anxiety. Upload a picture of yourself, try out the different frames, and get a feel for how they look on your face. If you absolutely love a pair you find there you can snag them for $95 or just take the style and go shopping on other sites. Make sure to read our guide to scoring cheap eye glasses before you go shopping for some important pointers.

WTF Is Google Doing? [Google]

Source: http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/gizmodo/full/~3/hPdshh1OwAQ/google-shopper-visual-search-app-officially-confuses-me-wtf-is-google-doing

I don’t understand Google Shopper. Not because the function—searching for books, CDs, DVDs and more by using the cover art or barcode—is confusing. But because they already have a visual search app built into new Android phones, Goggles.

Goggles does the same thing: You take a picture of something, like a book cover, and it searches for it. I get that Shopper is slightly different, with more of a direct Amazon-competitive slant, since you can bookmark products to buy them later (presumably through Google Checkout).

But why not just integrate that into Goggles? Why the hell does this separate other product exist? Like Fake Steve says, WTF is going on over there? Android and Chrome OS? Wave and Buzz? (Okay, Buzz and Wave aren’t an entirely fair comparison, though try explaining them to a normal person.) Now Goggles and Shopper? Am I just missing something? [Google]
