Google's 'smart glasses' technology, dubbed Google Glass, is causing quite a stir in the tech circles ahead of its rumoured launch later this year.
But exactly what would benefits would they deliver in your everyday life?
US airline JetBlue has put together some prototype images of the 'augmented reality' information you'd get when wearing the glasses, which contain a tiny camera, display and a pared-down Android computer.
And we like what we see, even if we'd baulk at the estimated US$1,500 price tag.
For starters, here's a view that many people will appreciate: being able to glance around an airport's departure gate and know where the AC sockets are (although the clusters of laptop-toting travellers sitting and squatting around certain columns is usually a give-away).
JetBlue suggests you'd also receive handy pop-up alerts on flight status.
Upon landing, you'd be directed to the appropriate baggage belt for your flight – and even told how long until the first bags came down the chute.
Need to hop a taxi? Your Google Glasses would provide an on-the-spot estimate of the fare.
Driving to the airport would also be a bit easier in a Glass world, JetBlue reckons, with live updates on capacity at each parking station.
Are there any other cool and useful (or just plain cool) ways you'd like to see airlines embrace Google Glass?
