Nina Garcia visited Google headquarters recently to acquire her very own pair of Google Glass, the internet-connected glasses that let you record your surroundings, search the internet, or look up something on Wikipedia. And according to WWD, Garcia will experience New York fashion week while wearing Glass.
So far, she loves the device because you never have to look down while using them. Her big criticism is the battery life, which is up to two hours.
The battery time only lasts for one or two hours so you have to reboot. You know fashion week is never a one- or two-hour day — it's more like 12 hours.
