About this project

Hi! Welcome and thank you for checking out our BRAND NEW eyewear line! 

These fashionable glasses will let you look great when you are using Google Glass and even when you aren't. Unlike Google's current Glass options, which can only be used with the Glass hardware attached, RIL Company's glasses can be used as top of the line glasses without the Glass hardware. They can be folded and stored  easily, which is not something that you can do with Glass frames.

The best of both worlds: an eye-catching set of amazing glasses and, if you want,  fully functional Google Glass eyewear. Designed to easily attach to the hardware needed for Glass to work.

After experiencing Google Glass we were excited. we asked ourselves: What if we combined our line with Glass to make it even better? We saw potential and have been designing and prototyping since then. The Pacific Collection is what we see for the finest sunglass and optical frame and we think it takes Google Glass to the next level

RIL Co.  was born from a desire to create a beautiful eyewear line that did more.  We wanted to use the finest materials and bypass the compromises that are made with wood frames.  We designed the Pacific Collection to be lighter, stronger, more comfortable and make it easy to install a wider range of lenses.

Risks and challenges

Being in the eyewear industry for over 7 years has given us some great factory relationships. We know what goes into the design and production of a high quality pair of glasses and we are excited to begin this process so that we can bring them to you at a great price.

Given the high cost of materials, manufacturing, and minimum order quantities from the factory, the biggest challenge we face is the funding for our initial order. The production timeline is set and tooling can begin immediately pending a successful campaign. With your help with this first order, we are very confident we will be able to bring you a fantastic product within our time frame.
