Google HUD Glasses to be released this year?
Earlier this month rumours started spreading about a pair of glasses, built by Google, with built-in technology ‘similar to a low end smartphone’, which would feature a head up display - more about that here. They were said to look like a pair of Oakley Thumps (pictured above).
Now a New York Times report says the glasses will go on sale by the end of the year, at a price “around the price of current smartphones”. 

Everyone I spoke with who was familiar with the project repeatedly said that Google was not thinking about potential business models with the new glasses. Instead, they said, Google sees the project as an experiment that anyone will be able to join. If consumers take to the glasses when they are released later this year, then Google will explore possible revenue streams.
