There is promising news on the horizon for those closely tracking Google Glass developments. When asked by Verge Editor-In-Chief Joshua Topolsky when Glass was "going to become a retail product," Google Product Director Steve Lee answered hopefully.

"We are aiming, as a team, to have it out as a consumer product by the end of this year," he said. "A fully polished product. We don't want this to be a niche thing, we think this can help every human being. We look forward to this being used by millions and millions of people."

Exact price points for Google Glass have yet to be announced.
