Google Glass, one of the most anticipated gadgets of the year 2013, will not be made available to public this year.
“The new ship date for Google Glass will not be until 2014,â€ a Google spokesperson said while talking to Computerworld. What this means is that the earlier rumors about Google launching the latest gadget this year are officially at rest now.
The Google Glass was made available to developers last year for a price of around Rs 80,000 or $1,500. But until the device makes its way to the public, the price of the device can be expected to go up twice of what it was given to the developers.
Google Glass makes use of augmented reality providing users an alternate medium of staying informed. The apparatus includes a wearable head mounted display that shows up all the relevant information at the just right time.
The developers are also looking at the possibility of creating a companion application for Android devices as well as for Apple iPhone devices to enable the functionalities of Google Glass on iPhones.
Google Glass looks like normal goggles but it can do things like a smartphone like taking pictures and videos. Also, if you want to send an SMS, you just need to speak the words and the Google Glass will send an SMS on what you said.
