What does this mean?
Try to imagine surfing through your Facebook account in your face, anywhere.
A pair of futuristic Google glasses that stream your smartphone from your pocket directly to your eyes via HUD (heads up display) technology and will go on sale by the end of 2012, according to reports from the New York Times.
Powered with the Android OS, these glasses will allow you to check your email, update your Facebook, or even check-in to your favorite restaurant.
With its 3G or 4G data connection, GPS, and numerous environmental sensors, integration with computer services with your smartphone means commuting may never be more productive than this.
The new feature is an integrated navigation system currently uses a "head tilting to scroll and click” interface that is a very easy to learn system once the user is adept at navigation. Google designs it to become the user's second nature.
The project is currently being developed in the clandestine Google X labs, a branch of the company that focuses on futuristic tech and big picture concepts, such as space elevators, robots and driverless cars.
Reports suggest the new smart Google VR goggles will feature a built-in camera, cost in the region of $250 to $600, and look very similar to a pair of Oakley Thumps.
The new product looks to be part of a long term strategy to expand the Android platform to as many devices possible.
