Google’s ‘Project Glass’ Offers A Look Into the Future


Today Google released information about Project Glass, a new augmented reality based set of glasses you wear that reminds us just how insane our future could become:

A group of us from Google[x] started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do.

Check out the following video below:

Could you see something like this coming from Apple and would you wear this in public? They remind me of something Skynet would release in time for Judgment Day.

  • Still not entirely sure how it works. Seems to be partly voice commands, but how do you bring up certain icons, etc? Either way, if they can do it, I want it.

  • I’ll be the party pooper here. We think about how communication can at times limit our interactions with others (ie. being at dinner with a date and your blackberry simultaneously). Now we’ll be walking on the street with a bunch of people with eyes darting, accidentally bumping into each other.

    Ditto.. to the COOL factor

    Bumping into each other should get people interacting.

  • Larlarsain

    Cool, I like that.

    Imagine how safe it will be to drive with everybody wearing these things…not to mention walking across the street without getting hit while you’re looking at icons instead of traffic.

  • TransRapid

    Or if they are running Android, when they get viruses, and load full screen video of ad or site as you are driving…
