Smart Glasses have definitely been a subject of conversation since Google announced its Project Glass last year, and now it appears that that the tech giant may have a bit of competition to deal with later this year.

At the 2013 CES Show in Las Vegas, Vuzix announced that for a little less than $500, users will be able to connect wirelessly to their smartphone (iOS or Android) or other compatible devices, as well as the Internet on the M100 which has a virtual display with integrated camera and powerful processing engine, running the Android OS.

Answering the phone with a visual address book, enabling apps from texting and email to visual navigation (via an integrated GPS and head tracker), and features like video recording and image capture will all be possible. Its understood how they won CES Best of Innovation Award this year.
