New York Times reported that Google is working on Augmented Reality glasses with HUD that will be powered by Andoid. It will include 3G & 4G connectivity, GPS, camera, and Heads Up Display. Nice Bilton reported that the glasses will cost about as much as a smartphone. The HUD will be a small screen that sits a few inches from the user's eye. Seth Weintraub, a blogger for 9 to 5 Google, claims that the glasses will look similar to Oakley Thump 2. There will be unique controls for the shades such as head tilting for navigation.
“We are told it is very quick to learn and once the user is adept at navigation, it becomes second nature and almost indistinguishable to outside users.”
The glasses will store data onto a cloud service and will also be integrated with a number of Google software. The display of the interfaces will be in Augmented Reality view and not as standard pages. This is a very futuristic concept of wearable computing. Google has set a tight timeframe for the glasses but they said they are more concerned about producing the device first and the revenue stream second.
