Samsung to launch Google Glass-like device

Samsung may release its own Google Glass-like device called Gear Glass as early as September, according to a new report from Korea.

It sounds like Gear Glass will be nearly identical in form to Google Glass, if a new report from Business Korea first spotted by Sam Mobile turns out to be true.

There will be a small prism slightly above one eye for viewing content and an earpiece for listening.

Gear Glass is likely to run on the Tizen operating system, an open-source software that Samsung has played a large role in developing. Most wearable displays on the market, including Google Glass and Epson’s Moverio BT-200s, run on Android.
