Google’s Project Glass Will Work With Your iPhone And Be Available In 2013

Google’s crazy new Project Glasses look awesome. So far only a few people have actually got to try them out, but the reviews have been very positive, even if it does look weird to have a computer on your face.

While Google hasn’t announced an official release date for Google Glass, they’re already let a number of developers preorder a unit for $1500. A new report says that the Glasses will actually be released in 2013 though, and they’re going to work with the iPhone.

According to The Verge‘s in depth look at Google Glass, the device will be compatible with both Android smartphones and the iPhone.

“The device gets data through Wi-Fi on its own, or it can tether via Bluetooth to an Android device or iPhone and use its 3G or 4G data while out and about. There’s no cellular radio in Glass, but it does have a GPS chip.”

So you’ll need a smartphone to get all your data an information, unless your city is blanketed with free Wi-Fi. The feature also says that Google Glass will cost under $1500 and be available by the end of 2013.

What do you guys think? Are Google Glasses the future of computing? Or just a whimsical fantasy? Let us hear your thoughts in the comments.

    So ugly

    Maybe it’s me… but I don’t think these are all that great. Nice niche product at best. I’m sure they will sell a few and be invaluable to those whose actually buy them. But in the end I don’t see it being a must have product for the masses.

    I want some for sure.

    I don’t see the point in these things…. I think from a needs perspective, I see no “NEED” for these. All i see is that this is a “WANT” product for childish geeks with a gadget fetish. I can see these going down much like 3D glasses. Yeah, people have 3D TVs, 3D glasses, but er, um, they don’t use them, they just watch normal 2D. I’ve yet to find someone I socialize with that wants one or is planning on getting one.

    So far their use seems quite limited. They look very cool, and are in the early days of development. Functions have yet to be developed, it will be very interesting to see what can be made of them as new functions appear from the developers who will hopefully be getting access to them soon. One problem I currently would have, my carrier does not support tethering! Oh crap!

    You won’t catch us wearing one through a government building. That’s for sure.

    Very weird

    I’d probably get these glass, IF I WANTED TO LOOK LIKE A GOOGLE DORK.

    I don’t think it will become mainstream amongst the general public. Proffesionals such as doctors, architects, engineers and anyone that can benefit from a point-of-view computing device may find ways to use it. Oh and perhaps extreme sport junkies…
