Last month we posted a report titled "Apple, Google & Others Preparing for the Coming Glass War." Today, we follow through on that report by taking a deeper look at this emerging trend that could very quickly be the next "iPad" in terms of sheer market impact. Various tech industry players are now revealing some of their inventions for a next-gen video headset like Google's "Project Glass" to help us understand how this first generation wearable computer could appeal to us. Although there are a number of known drawbacks to such a device becoming mainstream quickly, I believe it'll eventually become a device that we'll all be drooling for over time. It carries that certain futuristic-appeal that excites our senses and with a few essential applications, like it doubling as your next smartphone, it's going to be a very hot device category. For some, the question is simple: will Apple lead or follow in this future glass projects market?
