Google revealed that its Project Glass gadget will be a premium product, the final version will be cheaper than the current $1,500 price point for the developer kit, but the search giant will not be targeting for entry level. Additionally, the Project Glass project heads also think that wearable computing will be very much the norm "within three to five years".
Project Glass is still very much in the prototype stage. Google will be working with developers to improve Glass' functionality and to work out any kinks in the system, of which there are apparently many. The device still crashes often, and many of its features are unreliable. Google will be shipping units to developers some time early in 2013, and a consumer-ready version of the tech is expected to debut sometime in 2014.
