Google Glass is generating a considerable amount of buzz for a product that isn’t going to hit the market until later this year. The highly anticipated device has become so popular that other companies are already thinking about producing their own wearable technology. Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets revealed in a note to investors on Thursday that he believes Microsoft (MSFT) may be developing its own Internet-connected glasses that would come to market in 2014, AppleInsider reported. The analyst claims that Google Glass will be the beginning of a “major push” into wearable technology. Earlier reports have suggested that several big-name technology companies including Apple (AAPL), Samsung (005930), LG (066570)and Google (GOOG) are all working on the next-generation of wearable accessories.
