The tablet revolution has arrived and stabilized and now everybody’s scrambling for the next big thing. Google’s quite publicly doing its whole glasses thing, but Apple’s been characteristically quiet about any fancy new digs. Now, the New York Times is reporting that Apple’s got an iOS watch in development, but deep, deep, deeeeep under cover.
Glass is, simply put, a computer built into the frame of a pair of glasses, and it’s the device that will make augmented reality part of our daily lives. With the half-inch (1.3 cm) display, which comes into focus when you look up and to the right, users will be able to take and share photos, video-chat, check appointments and access maps and the Web. Consumers should be able to buy Google Glass by 2014.
