Google Glass coming to consumers in 2014

Google co-founder Sergey Brin would like Google Glass to be available “in a broad consumer offering” in 2014, he told Bloomberg.

The company introduced “Project Glass” as it was known, in April. The augmented reality-enhanced glasses let you record video, check your calendar, get weather updates and see messages from your friends. At least those are the features outlined in a video Google released at the time.

Google had been coy about a release date for the product, though. On Wednesday, Brin, speaking at Google’s IO developers conference in San Francisco, reintroduced Google Glass as it’s now known with a splashy video showing skydivers using the technology.

Regarding availability, he also announced that pairs of Explorer Edition Google Glass will be available next year to developers for $1,500 each.

In the video above, Brin doesn’t get into what kind of price point Google Glass might carry in 2014. He does, however, state that Glass has been a big priority for him, taking up half his time or more of late.

What do you think? Are you looking forward to buying one of these in 2014? What’s the most you’d pay? Let us know in the comments.
