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.
