Smartphones and other mobile devices have made the housing search much more convenient in recent years. Will Google Glass now put it directly in front of our eyes?

Trulia has developed an app for the high-tech Google glasses designed to help homebuyers who are currently on the hunt.

Trulia for Glass notifies the person wearing the glasses when they are close to a home that meets their search criteria, and then offers a property description, directions to the home, and the contact information of the listing agent.

Google Glass interacts in a couple ways: a robot-like voice reads information about the listing into your ear, and you can scroll through images and pages by swiping the frame. The glasses display an image at the upper right corner of your field of vision.

To see Trulia for Glass in action, check out this video, made by the developer.

Readers, do you think this would ever catch on? Will we all be whispering to our glasses soon?
