Google's plan to come up with a pair of augmented reality glasses, which could swarm data directly to the eyes of its user in real time, has taken the tech world by storm.
According reports, the goggles come with a lens like a see-through computer monitor, Android mobile operating system (OS), mobile broadband connection, motion sensors and GPS.
It has been reported that Google will make the device available in the market by the end of 2012 and the glasses are expected to cost around the price of the current smartphones, which can be projected around $250 to $600.
Loaded with a low-resolution and built-in camera, the Google glasses will be able to monitor the world in real time and overlay information about locations, surrounding buildings and friends who might be nearby, says a report in the New York Times.
The report also says that the state-of-the-art spectacles, not designed for constant wear, will display information via a heads-up display in an augmented reality view, rather than as a Web browser page.
Adding on, it is also assumed that the data will be fetched through a 3G/4G data connection, and the glasses would also come up with WiFi and Bluetooth version like in any other smartphone.
However, Google has not yet confirmed the reports about cloud-connected eyewear.
