Prince Charles dons $1900 Google Glass

Prince Charles has donned a $1900 pair of Google's Glass prototype, on the back of its British release this week.

The Prince tried on the costly specs during his tour of Canada last week, visiting a popular place for local tech-startups called Innovation Alley.

He used the glasses to try out an app designed to help workmen keep on top of their jobs, the Daily Mail reported.

The app, called VisualSpection, aims to make it easier for oil and gas inspectors to record video of problems they run into.
