Google unveils Project Glass, interactive glasses of the future
Google thinks that technology should work for you - to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t. With that motto, thinking in more simple terms of how to enhance your life with technology, they have been working on Project Glass; which are glasses you wear that are socially interactive.
The glasses appear to do many things, but some main points in the video below that Google unveiled today is that it has an intuitive notification system, with both being able to get notifications and send them. It appears to have Google Maps and location integrated into it, voice recognition assistant similar to Siri, Google Music, photo capabilities, and sharing into Google Plus and Google Hangouts (video chat) as well.
It’s a lot to fit into a pair of glasses, and there is probably more to it, but these are some of the things I see so far. I don’t doubt though that it all can fit, as technology is getting smaller and smaller, for example with small microchips being used in server drones.
Since this is in the research and development stages of the project, I don’t think Google is ready to unveil a working device, however, they have prototypes that are modeled, which I posted below. Project Glass looks to be extremly similar to the Bionic Contact Lens, which has already been proven through research to work. I would imagine similar technology will be used for the Google glasses.
