Folks at 9to5Google are reporting a new Google X project which is about a futuristic glasses.
The HUD glasses look like Oakley Thumps having a front-facing camera used to gather information and could aid in augmented reality apps. the camera can of course shoot pictures, even in the dark using a small flash. Camera is extremely small yet ranging upto few megapixels.
However, there are differences from a standard heads up display (HUD). This one is only for one eye. It is not transparent nor does it have dual 3D configurations. Among its cool features, the navigation system currently used is a head tilting-to scroll and click. We’ve leant that it is very quick to learn and once the user is adept at navigation, it becomes second nature and almost indistinguishable to outside users.
Not just that, you can control the glasses with voice input and output could also be voice. It is speculated that this device runs Android OS on an older generation hardware ~1GHz ARM A8, 256MB RAM and 8GB of storage. So it also a phone or perhaps can integrate well with phone in your pocket?
We can only speculate what it could become, but it already sounds awesome.
and yes, Motorola already demoed something related to 3d glasses at CES:
