Google Glass is one of those innovations where you know right away that you're staring at the future. Google has been a company that has constantly pushed the envelope in a variety of things, and recently, some of those "things" have been far-flung ideas that would never earn an ounce of funding at more focused...

Folks have been clamoring for more on Google's Project Glass, and Sergey Brin--one of the co-founders of Google who is now burying himself in the R&D department--recently appeared on “The Gavin Newsom” on The Current with the prototype glasses perched on his face.

The fruit of Project Glass, a project born from Google X, is essentially a futuristic-looking pair of glasses that probably runs on Android and bring the whole Google experience right up to your face (and left eye, apparently).

While 3D has obviously exploded in recent months, one thing that has been left in the dust is universal support and compatibility. With everyone taking 3D and running with it, we've been left with a lot of fragmentation in the market, with some sets supporting active, and others passive. And that's just the start.
