Ok, first sound the rumor alert. rumor! rumor!

People working in the Google X Lair are hard at work making tech you can wear. CNET reports on Google’s latest effort to bring all world knowledge to you — by way of a pair of glasses: “the high-tech specs purportedly would tap into Google’s cloud-based location services to convey details about the user’s surroundings. The visual information would then appear as a 3D augmented reality computer display.”
