Google to Sell Heads-Up Display Glasses by Year’s End – NYTimes.com: “People who constantly reach into a pocket to check a smartphone for bits of information will soon have another option: a pair of Google-made glasses that will be able to stream information to the wearer’s eyeballs in real time. According to several Google employees familiar with the project who asked not to be named, the glasses will go on sale to the public by the end of the year. These people said they are expected ‘to cost around the price of current smartphones,’ or $250 to $600. The people familiar with the Google glasses said they would be Android-based, and will include a small screen that will sit a few inches from someone’s eye. They will also have a 3G or 4G data connection and a number of sensors including motion and GPS.”

About time. We can soon go from staring zombie-like at our smartphones to staring zombielike at… nothing. Lack of connectivity will soon become a defining feature that you pay extra for. Still, I’d love these!
