While others are still working hard on coming up with one such device, Google has already released its most popular wearable device-- the Google Glass in the US. The smart-glass, which is still in a beta-phase can be bought by anyone who wants to spare $1,500 which is a great deal of money if converted in Indian currency. To give you a rough idea, if it gets launched in India, you might have to pay close to Rs. 89,175.
Earlier this year, Google sold limited stock of the same device to the US public for $1,500 to make it available to select group of users such as apps developers. Via a blogpost, Google said that it "decided to move to a more open beta," and said anyone in the United States could buy the internet-connected Glass eyewear as long as stocks lasted. The consumer version of the Google Glass is said to go on sale by the end of this year.
To talk about Google Glass, it is a stamp-sized electronic screen mounted on the side of a pair of eyeglass frames. It can record video, access email, provide turn-by-turn driving directions and retrieve information from the web by connecting wirelessly to a user's cell phone.
Google Glass is packed with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, speakers, a camera, microphone, possibly a gyroscope that detects head-tilts. Apart from these, Google Glass has voice input, which makes it the most interesting device.
The built-in microphone combined with Google Now connects you directly to the search engine. You simply activate Google Now by saying "Okay Glass" then send a command or question.
