Google Augmented Reality Glasses

Rumors afoot that Google has plans to announce the release of a pair of augmented reality glasses by the end of the year.  The glasses will be able to provide the wearer with information about people, places and things viewed & entertainment such as, well, who knows what they will come up with.

Some articles indicate that the glasses will be used with the android smart phone while others believe it will be a stand alone item.  Sources say that the glasses will look similar to the Oakley Thump glasses pictured below.
So what might it be like wearing augmented reality glasses?  Maybe it will be similar to what is shown in this fictitious product advertisement video which was part of the Iron Man 2 marketing campaign.
