Google had released the Android Wear SDK for the developers months back. Now maybe we would be seeing some of the prototypes by Google. Though the LG G Watch would be the first one to have the Android Wear, the Moto 360 would also be not too far from it’s release date. But for now, the LG G Watch be the first one.

3. Google Glass

Well the Nerdy Google Glass has had a pretty rough year, and at such a price of $1500 you don’t make stuff toys. Google Glass after much criticism has evolved with many Glassware apps and some design improvements. We hope that something more will come out from Google Glass. Can we expect a sub $400 priced consumer edition? 

There are tons of stuff to talk about, like the recent Nest-Dropcam merger, Chromecast updates. Well the I/O will start by 9am today, so lets just be a little patient and wait for what Google has in store for us.
