Google streaming info to user’s eyeballs? One more reason to factor mobile search into your domaining plans for 2012.

February 22, 2012

Had to make sure it wasn’t April 1st when I read this story in the NY Times today, but if true it shows yet another reason to factor local/mobile search into your domaining and development plans this year.

People who constantly reach into a pocket to check a smartphone for bits of information will soon have another option: a pair of Google-made glasses that will be able to stream information to the wearer’s eyeballs in real time.

According to several Google employees familiar with the project who asked not to be named, the glasses will go on sale to the public by the end of the year. These people said they are expected “to cost around the price of current smartphones,” or $250 to $600.

The people familiar with the Google glasses said they would be Android-based, and will include a small screen that will sit a few inches from someone’s eye. They will also have a 3G or 4G data connection and a number of sensors including motion and GPS.

Also thought it was pretty funny that the URL of the story (possibly it’s original title) contains ‘Google to sell terminator style glasses by years end’.
