The first product featuring this new system is expected in 2015 with target prices ranging below $1000.

Ralph Osterhout, CEO and founder of Osterhout Design Group, said: “We’re working to change the world of computing by changing the way we interact, connect, and explore information, and I am happy to introduce the next step on this journey.”

ODG’s Smart Glasses allow users to do everything they do with a tablet, with 3D graphics overlaid and in a hands free format.

ODG’s ReticleOS operating system uses Android and can run any existing Android-based application. ODG is also working with developers to create new and unique experiences that utilize and maximize the devices’ advanced capabilities.

San Francisco-based ODG develops heavy-duty smart glasses for the military.

For less than $1,000, the augmented reality glasses can display high-definition video, record video and lay visuals over the real world.

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

Google Glass currently costs $1,500.
