According to this article Microsoft are creating a rival to Google Goggles.

To be clear I’m not talking about the app for your smart-phone that identifies objects – i am talking about the ultra cool specs that provide real time data as a sort of heads up display as you walk around.

As I don’t think anyone knows their true brand name yet (enlighten me in the comments if you do) they get referred to as “Google Goggles”.

There’s an interesting review here for the Google spectacles and here’s Google’s page for the Google Goggles app.

I’m looking forward to the day when I can walk around with photochromic lenses and a heads up display.
