Google has published details of futuristic, internet-connected glasses - even though the technology for them does not exist yet.

While wearing a pair, you could see directions to where you are going appear literally before your eyes, as well as talk to friends over video chat or shop online as you walk around.

Details of 'Project Glass' have been revealed in a video and blog post, with Google saying they want to start a discussion and solicit ideas.

The glasses, which can do everything a smartphone can do, also open up a minefield of challenges around privacy, practicality and even fashion sensibility.
