The Vergence “Social Electric Eyewear HD” will debut, however, as something a bit less than the augmented-reality eyeglasses that Google debuted last week. Google co-founder Sergey Brin was photographed wearing a prototype, although it’s unclear how functional the glasses were.

Vergence announced its plans on Kickstarter, where consumers can play venture capitalist and fund an idea to completion. On the site, Vergence said that the Eyewear HD will cost $299, and will be available on Dec. 21, 2012.

However, the Kickstarter pitch downplays the augmented-reality angle that the Vergence team promoted earlier via its development videos. Now, the glasses are being positioned as “computing enabled eyewear”: social video sharing, electric-powered sunglasses.
