Recon Instruments MOD Live Ski Goggles
These are exactly the sort of goggles that James Bond would wear during a frantic downhill ski battle, with lots of poorly trained mafia henchmen in generic militia uniforms. The MOD Live Goggles provide the wearer with a variety of GPS-enabled analytics, such as speed, altitude, distance travelled and even location and temperature data. So where does Android come in? Google's OS is responsible for taking the data and getting it to you, displaying it via a heads-up display (HUD) on your goggles.

Sony Z Series Android Walkman
Sony's iconic Walkman player has always been a pioneer for personal music players. The original cassette player was a revolution and its Discman personal CD players continued the tradition with market-leading sound. The next generation is represented by the Sony Z-Series Walkman with Android. The Z-Series carries Android 2.3 Gingerbread and with access to every app the store has to offer, while also bringing the music downloads and movie rental portals, this is in essence an Android equivalent to the iPod Touch.

Sony's SmartWatch is a Android-enabled watch that links to your phone via Bluetooth. As well as displaying phone and SMS alerts, the SmartWatch also updates you on your social networks, provided your phone is connected to wireless or 3G internet. The watch-face is a small colour screen, much like the touch-screen on the iPod Nano. You can customize this watch-face with Android apps, depending on how you want to use it. Think of the SmartWatch as less of a timepiece, and more of a small wireless interface for your phone.

NOX Audio Admiral Touch Headphones
NOX's wireless headphones give you a 2.4-inch colour touch screen on the left ear-cup. Via the magic of Android and WiFi, these cans will download and run pretty much any Android music app, including VoIP apps. These headphones aren't just a gimmick though. They deliver glorious 7.1 surround sound to your ears, although how all this affects the battery life is a question worth asking. We'd be surprised if these headphones will last as long as your walkman off a single charge.

Lenovo K91 (Google TV)
Google's Project Glass is one of the tech world's more exciting innovations. Augmented reality headsets are not a new idea, but one feels that a head-mounted display (HMD) with the might of Google behind it has a great chance of coming to fruition. Central to the success of Project Glass is Android, which will handle all the HMD's heads-up information (weather, check-ins, maps, video-calls etc) as well as recognising verbal commands.
