Google's HUD Glasses [news.cnet.com]
The prototype for Google's HUD glasses has been seen, according to tech news site 9to5Google. And, supposedly they resemble Oakley's Thump glasses, which makes them look a lot like something the Terminator might wear.

In December, rumors spread that Google was finishing up a prototype on high-tech glasses known as wearable head-up displays (HUD) that could tap into Google's cloud-based location services and detail users' surroundings. The information would then appear as an augmented reality computer display.

According to 9to5Google, these glasses can do all that and more. The glasses will reportedly have an extremely small front-facing camera with a flash to gather information and take photos, a navigation system that is used by head-tilting to scroll and click, I/O for voice input and output, and CPU/RAM/storage hardware nearly equivalent to a generation-old Android smartphone.

Uhm, Google, about that name...

Every time I see the subject mentioned, I'm going to think they're collecting information about the demographics of the user's current location, with emphasis on disposable income or lack thereof. And I can't possibly be the only US resident with this problem.

@lucy24 my thoughts exactly ( not in USA) a really scary concept. Next it will be "want to know where your kids are ?", thinking ahead to the next generation of consumers.
