Seleste Smart Glasses Review | AppleVis | Access and Inclusion Through Technology | Scoop.it
Hardware The Seleste glasses feel similar to regular sunglasses, except that the arms are thicker to hold the electronics, and there is a small camera right between the eyes.

The glasses come with a protective case, and they charge through a micro USB port on the right arm.
