Facebook on Wednesday announced it would launch its own smart glasses next year which connect to smartphones as part of an alliance with eyewear titan Essilor Luxottica.

According to Facebook Chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, the Ray-Ban branded eyewear, a move by Facebook into wearable tech is an early step in a project to create futuristic eyewear that augments the real-world views with data or graphics from the internet.

“They are going to be the next step on the road to augmented reality glasses, and they look pretty good too,” Zuckerberg said.

Technical specifications of the smart glasses to be produced by the Franco-Italian firm were not disclosed.

Zuckerberg explained that engineers in a Project Aria team are experimenting with the eyewear.
