Recently Google announced that they were working on a smart glasses prototype using Android - now comes word that California's Oakley Inc. is developing its own smart glasses prototype. May the best product win!

From release/information:

Google might want to use its new smart glasses prototype to look over its shoulder.

Oakley Inc., a California company known for its sports equipment, sunglasses, and ski goggles, is developing glasses that use smartphone features and project information directly onto the lenses. The news comes from a Bloomberg report based on an interview with Oakley CEO Colin Baden.

"As an organization, we've been chasing this beast since 1997", Baden is quoted as saying. "Ultimately, everything happens through your eyes, and the closer we can bring it to your eyes, the quicker the consumer is going to adopt the platform."
