According to insisting rumors, Google is developping augmented reality 3D stereoscopic glasses that will superimpose information on top of the surrooundings. Using geolocalisation, and perhaps accelerometers, the wearable head-up display (HUD) knows that you are in front of a restaurant, and displays the opening days, the menu, and the today's specials. The potential revenues in geolocalisation advertising is so huge that Google may sell the "Google goggles" for a very low price.
Google goggles will be similar in appearance to normal eyewear with most probably a few buttons on the sides, a battery in one on the branches, and a Bluetooth receiver in the other, ready to be connected to your Android smartphone or (maybe) to an iPhone.
