Google to Release Head-Up Display Glasses 2012

Ready for a terminator style HUD to “enhance” the real world? According to 9to5google.com, Google will be releasing these by the end of the year. The glasses will be Android-based, have a 3G or 4G data connection. They will also include motion and GPS sensors enabling a unique navigation system that uses “head tilting to scroll and click.” The project is being developed by Google X, a secretive laboratory that works on futuristic projects. The glasses will utilize several Google programs, including Google Latitude, Google Goggles, and Google Maps, according to a company employee. “You will be able to check into locations with your friends through the glasses,” according to a Google employee.

The glasses also will have a low-resolution built-in camera that will be able to monitor events in real time and overlay information about locations, surrounding buildings, and nearby friends.
