Google Planning to Offer Heads-Up Display Glasses

  • Google is developing Android-based glasses that will stream online information to users and make it visible via a small screen near the eyes.
  • The glasses will identify an individual’s location and examine what that person is looking at to provide related information about location, objects and friends who might be nearby.
  • The glasses will have 3G or 4G connectivity along with motion sensors and GPS capability. Navigation will be motion-based; tilting of the head will allow for actions such as scrolling and clicking.
  • The Oakley Thumps-like glasses will be available later this year for a cost between $250 and $600.
  • Google is looking at the glasses as an experiment in real-time information. They are not yet looking at ways to monetize the technology.
