    Rumor: Google to Sell HUD Glasses Powered by Android this year, Around $250-$600

    Google heads-up display glasses to sell for $250 to $600 this year, NYT says | The Verge


    The New York Times' Nick Bilton is quoting "Google employees familiar with the project" as saying that Mountain View's long-rumored skunkworks technology heads-up glasses with integrated connectivity and navigation features will be on sale this year. That could be construed as an aggressive-sounding schedule, but it's said that the company is looking at this more of an "experiment" than a profitable product idea first, revenue streams later. And the price might be low enough to at least get a few techies interested: "around the price of current smartphones," Bilton says, or somewhere in the range of $250 to $600. His sources say that we can expect either 3G or 4G wireless capability, motion and GPS sensors, a camera, and an Android base powering a small display sitting close to the eye that will offer an augmented reality view of your world. Integration with Google products like Maps and Goggles is a given, needless to say.


    Whether these will take off depends on a wide variety of factors: usability, style, and fleshing out exactly what such a product does but naturally, we're as excited as anyone to try them. More on this as it develops.

    A great example of why, all things being equal, Android will outlive iOS.

    Android (being an open platform) can be ported to all kinds of things and be easily modified to be moved around. Heck, Google doesn't even have to do it. Wind River and Clarion developed an Android powered Head Unit for a car.
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.
