Apple’s probably not coming out with AR glasses anytime this decade, but that’s not stopping concept designers from flooding the web with dreams of what Apple’s spectacles will look like.

This latest concept comes from Martin Hajek and they’re definitely the most stylish Apple Glasses vaporware we’ve seen yet. The Apple Glasses in Hajek’s mockups actually look like real glasses, only they’re also big enough to provide some useful information to the wearer.

The tech world has yet to produce a pair of AR glasses that don’t look dorky, but Hajek’s concept hopes Apple can change all of that. The concept embraces Apple’s minimalist style while still packing in a ton of futuristic tech.

In addition to supporting the lenses, the frame of the glasses could be used to house sensors, a camera, wireless antennas and more. Hajek even added an iPhone X-style notch at the front that would hold an ambient environment sensors and another camera.

To interact with the glasses, wearers would just tap on the side. Wireless charging would be one of the glasses’ killer features. The glasses wouldn’t be cheap though. iDropNews and Hajek predict they’ll cost about $1000 for the cheapest model. Apple will also likely offer them in a variety of different colors and styles.
