Google’s (GOOG) “Project Glass” smart glasses product is still a work in progress but it may already have some stiff competition. Debuting at CES 2013 is Vuzix’s M100, a wearable device that connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth for connectivity and provides a heads-up display that hovers in front of one eye. The company first announced its M100 smart glasses this past November and targeted a $1,000 price point, but Vuzix now says the device will cost just $500 when it launches later this year. Key specs include a WQVGA color display, an OMAP processor, 4GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, a 1080p camera and the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
