Google co-founder Sergei Brin has revealed that the firm’s much awaited ‘Project Glass’ techno goggles, could be available in the market as early as next year.
“I have some hopes to maybe get it out sometime next year,” Brin in an interview with Current TV.
“The project is a heck
of a lot further along than people have imagined,” Brin added.

Last week, Google showed off the first video taken with its ''Project Glass'' techno-glasses - hi-tech specs that ''layer'' computer information over the world, The Daily Mail reports.
The glasses also have a camera built into the arm, and the glasses are starting to be seen increasingly outside the Google offices, with co-founders Larry Page and Sergei Brin both wearing the techno-specs at public events.
According to the report, the wraparound glasses feature a miniature display that sits above one eye, allowing users to surf the internet, make video calls, listen to music and update the diary without lifting a finger.
The screen is controlled by voice and by tilting your head, the report said.
The technology is known as ‘wearable computing’ and is expected to launch a new generation of gadgets, which display a layer of information over everything the wearer sees, bringing together the search engine, GPS tracking, a phone and a camera.
