Copycat or Innovator? Baidu turns up the heat on Google

'The Google of China' is keen to take on Google in its own turf and its ambition highlights the blurred lines between copycat culture and “micro-innovation”.

The tech press reported recently that Chinese search giant was working on a new “smartglasses” device, dubbed Baidu Eye – a computerised headset with a small LCD screen, voice commands, image capture, and face recognition.

Sounds familiar? It should.

Baidu Eye is very similar to Google Glass, which is anticipated to be released to consumers for around US$1,500 by the end of the year.
