Search Engine Shades-Google Glasses Put the Web in Front of Your Eyeballs

FUTURISTIC GLASSES

Futuristic GlassesRumor has it that Google is in the process of developing a new product: Google glasses.
The product is a pair of electronic glasses that can stream information directly to the eyes of its users. It may sound like an invention for 2040, but these futuristic glasses may just be the next big thing of this year. Google has yet to confirm that the project is in full development; however, the New York Times is reporting on some of the alleged features, including a built-in camera, a 3G or 4G connection and a small screen near the eye. This screen will allow users to connect to the Internet. If you’re checking Facebook while sporting Google glasses, scrolling or clicking will be as easy as tilting the head back and forth.

The glasses will supposedly start selling from $250 to $600.

So what do you guys think? Is this concept a trip to disaster or a beginning of a new virtual reality experience? I think there is some potential, but can’t agree with the idea yet.
