Samsung to unveil "Gear Glass" at IFA

GearGlass

Samsung has dominated the Android smartphone market, dipped into the smartwatch market, and they aren’t stopping there.  Samsung plans to launch a direct competitor to Google Glass called Gear Glass at the IFA in September.

The drawing above shows the Gear Glass as more of a earpiece where  Google Glass is a full set of eyeglasses.  Gear Glass will reportedly run on the Tizen operating system, which has also been seen in the Gear Fit, Gear 2, and Gear 2 Neo.

Other manufacturers such as Sony and Apple, are planning on entering the smart glass market as well, but nothing is for sure.  What do you think? Would you even wear smart-glasses? I would sure like to try them out first, especially with Google Glass costing $1500 bucks, which is available now to the public here.
