Calling Google a controversial company is not an exaggeration. While the planned shutdown of Google Reader infuriates information junkies (like me), another project causes heated debate: Google Glass. This is a pair of "smart glasses" that can display information such as directions or incoming messages in the peripheral field of vision.

Oh, and it may even let you play Angry Birds at some point.
