Deep within the secret labs of Google[x] a team of Googlers has been working on an augmented-reality assistant that comes in the form of a futuristic looking set of glasses, except it’s not. But it is being called Project Glass.
What we can see in the above photos that were released by Project Glass on Google Plus, is that the display could sit above you eye, so that you would glance up to see information. The design in the photos is only a render, so it’s not a finished product. Instead, the Project Glass team want people’s feedback on what it should look like and what functionality it should have.
Although it’s not stated, it would make sense for the system to run on Android as all the needed functionality would be readily available. Another thing to think about is how it would get data to retrieve information — will it tether to your phone via bluetooth, or will it have its own data connection? Who knows, but I can’t wait to find out.
The video below makes the whole concept much easier to understand and much cooler to think about than words could ever explain. All I know is that I want one.
