Print your own Google Glass and look the part #3dthursday

Sander Thing65706

Several have joked about doing this idea, but Joris van Tubergen is the first to make a really credible pair that I expect to see at hackerspaces and halloween parties from now until Google Glass becomes an everyday occurrence! Check out this write-up at The Verge:

Han Solo, Honest Abe, and even Aristotle are just a few of the people who look absolutely fantastic wearing their Google Glass computers. But unless you’re a deep-pocketed developer from the US, chances are nil of getting anywhere near the audacious $1,500 spectacles. So why not do the next best thing and print a pair?

That’s exactly what Sander Veenhof and Klasien van de Zandschulp did, whom I discovered this morning in an Amsterdam cafe cheerfully muttering nonsense into their oblivious eyewear. The 3D printed glasses share all the notable design flourishes of the Google originals, including a small transparent “display” that had to be cut and affixed manually. The end result is accurate enough to amuse those of us in on the joke, and nerdy enough to bemuse pretty much everybody else.

The 3D model is hosted on Thingiverse and is based upon a drawing originally found at Google Sketchup. The STL files are available to download now for printing at the 3D shop of your choosing.

“Ok Glass, let’s make some believe.”

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. I would rather have Adafruit Glass. At least there would be tutorials on it and we could hack it.
