Google X’s wearable technology isn’t an iPod Nano, but rather a heads up display (glasses) | 9to5Google | Beyond Good and Evil

In addition, we have heard that this device is not an “Android peripheral” as the NYT stated. According to our source, it communicates directly with the Cloud over IP. Although, the “Google Goggles” could use a phone’s Internet connection, through Wi-Fi or a low power Bluetooth 4.0.
