Be sure to watch the YouTube vid later!!!

Rumors that Google may be working on a wearable HUD-based mobile device have been circulating for a few months now, and today the project has been revealed to the public for the first time. Project Glass is its name, and currently it's being developed at Google's secretive X Lab, or Google[x], to give it its full name.

The concept designs and demo video on Project Glass's Google+ page show sleek, stylish glasses that look like something right out of the Deus Ex universe. There's a metal frame for support, with a chunkier, plastic area and HUD (likely where the actual electronics are stored) near the right eye.

In an introductory post, the the Project Glass team says it's aiming to create technology which can be "there when you need it, and get out of your way when you don't." A demo video shows off possible uses for the tech, including messaging, navigation, video chat, social networking and photography. At this stage the team says it's looking for feedback and input from the public, and there's no information on any actual products which may spring from this project.

When they do arrive, though, it's only natural that they'd run Android in some form or other. We'll be watching Project Glass with interest as Google IO approaches, we're it's possible we'll learn more about this exciting new tech.

It's official folks -- we are living in the future. We've got the first video of Project Glass after the break, along with more photos of people with crazy futuristic eyewear.
