These can track your head movement so you can be placed into a 3D picture or video feed like you would with a pair of virtual reality goggles, the report added.

The operating system that ODG uses is a modified version of Android.

Battery life can range from an hour or two to nearly all day on a single charge.

ODG will soon release its own developer kit for third-party players to start building applications for the glasses.

The most recent version of ODG's smart glasses released last year are bulkier and more rugged to fit with military equipment specification.

Google Glass currently costs $1,500.
