They let technology get out of your way. If I want to take a picture I don't have to reach into my pocket and take out my phone; I just press a button at the top of the glasses and that's it.

Google Glasses Release Date

Sources close to Google are claiming that the new Google Goggles are about to launched with a release date as close as by the end of this year 2013 or more probably 2014 Q1. However, it will be very challenging if Google will be actually able sell these smart glasses in the consumer market, this sooner.

Because there are a number of issues that need to be addressed before releasing a commercial product, from battery life to FCC approval and from shipping to making other software hardware venders prepared to bring compatible application.

We are sure it will take a while for major software and hardware vendors to provide compatibility and interfacing with Google Smart Glasses.
