Google Heads-Up Display Glasses are coming

Google Heads-Up displays might be under your Christmas tree this year.

Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) are still stuff from science fiction. Yes we have them since decades, but they never caught on with the mass market. The New York Times reports now that unnamed Google employees said that Google Glasses will go on sale by the end of the year priced somewhere between $250 and $600. The Google Glasses would be made available for Android smartphones and have wearers enjoy an augmented reality experience.

The Google Glasses have also a small camera integrated according to the report. This would raise serious privacy issues. Something Google definitely should not get into right now, with all that is going on.

9to5Google has reported back in December the first time about the Google HMD project.

I am skeptical that the Google Glasses will be the first HMD that goes mainstream. Google is all over the place with new products and some do not stick: e.g. Google TV.
