It's early days yet, but last month, Google released this video of Project Glass, perhaps showing a taste of things to come?
Looking like they've come straight from a science fiction flick, the concept of these augmented reality specs show us a wire-framed glass with a small display over the right eye. Also included is a camera, microphone, GPS and one would assume a wireless connector to make the whole thing work.
Project Glass emerged from the Google X Lab, responsible for other interesting technologies such as Google's self-driving car. Apparently, the glasses are rumoured to cost around the price of a top range smart-phone and hope to be out by the end of 2012.
Whilst I think the idea behind it is great, I'm not sure our current hardware is quite up to it! But fingers crossed!
