Google is ramping up plans to open an app store focused solely on Google Glass, the computerised eyeglasses expected to launch in 2014.

According to a report in Marketing Land, Google confirmed a statement in a The New York Times review of the technology, in which author Clive Thompson said: "The company says an app store is coming next year, when Glass is available to the general public."

Google Glass, which is being trialled by 8,000 users, has already raised privacy concerns in the US and UK, with fears that users can surreptitiously take pictures or shoot video of people in restaurants, business meetings or public toilets.

Already, a Seattle cafe and Caesar’s Palace have banned the use of the device from their locations.
