Augmented reality head-up displays are becoming more popular each day even if the market for them is still mostly non-existent. Starting with the likes of Apple, Sony and most recently Google, who are rumoured that they are preparing to launch a video headset (with or without augmented reality support), another major company wants to enter the game. Any idea who might be missing from the Fantastic Tech Four team?
The rumours regarding the possible launch of Google’s far awaited augmented reality head-up display (HUD) glasses by the end of 2012 have taken tech blogs by storm in the last few days. Leaked by undisclosed Google employees, the so-called Google Goggles (the name of Google’s popular image search mobile app) are to be released to the public as an experiment somewhat like the Chromebooks in 2011 and priced similar to a smartphone. So what should we expect from this new gadget?
