Econintersect: Approximately 0.8 million Google Glass units will sell in the coming year, according to a study released by BI Intelligence. Sales in 2015 and 2016 will also be relatively weak. But the analysts expect that Google Glass will eventually become mainstream. By 2018, sales figures for the cyber goggles could increase to 21 million units per year. This is the maximum estimate by the way – of course Google Glass could also sell a lot worse.
Google Glass (styled “GLΛSS”) is a wearable computer with a head-mounted display (HMD) that is being developed by Google in the Project Glass research and development project, with the mission of producing a mass-market ubiquitous computer. Google Glass displays information in a smartphone-like hands-free format, that can interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands. While the frames do not currently have lenses fitted to them, Google is considering partnerships with sunglass retailers such as Ray-Ban or Warby Parker, and may also open retail stores to allow customers to try on the device.
