Live travel updates on Google Glass

Wearers of Google's new £1, 000 'Glass' computers will be able to get live travel updates and get directions in London. As reported in the London Evening Standard, the development will allow commuters to get Tube and bus directions in the corner of their vision as they travel through the capital.

Wearers will be able to tell the glasses where they want to go, and Google's servers will then work out the quickest route and display it on screen. The glasses are expected to go on sale to the public next year.
