Google Glass is THE gadget of 2013. From fevid excitement about the possibilities of seeing the future to privacy concerns raised by many including US senators, there is no doubt that Google's head-up display is causing major ripples around the world.

While thousands of Explorer editions of the product are currently in the hands of developers and enthusiasts around the globe, most commentators believe the first consumer edition of Glass won't arrive until 2014 at the earliest.

This week however the only UK-based developer with access to Glass told IBTimes UK that he expects to see the consumer version go on sale in time for Christmas this year, costing around £200.
