Google’s Project Glass: Experience Augmented Reality Through This Video
The myth just became reality — augmented reality, that is. Google just peeled the wrappers off its latest project and it’s definitely an eye-opener in more ways than one. The project, started by a team within the Google[x] group and dubbed ‘Project Glass’ now provides the world with a glimpse of the technology of augmented reality glasses. Through the eyes of a clever video officially released by Google Wednesday morning, the world is now able to experience how wearing a pair of these smart glasses would feel like.
Simply titled ‘One Day,’ the concept video takes us through a normal day through the lens of the Project Glass headgear which looks like something Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge would wear on Star Trek aboard the USS Enterprise-D.
Think you would wear them one day?
Perhaps, we all will have to when smartphones and tablet devices are no longer sold anywhere...
The video below demonstrates how everyday tasks such as dialing and receiving phone calls, checking the weather, getting directions to a restaurant, scheduling appointments and even initiating video calls would all be accomplished with these futuristic goggles according to the Google X team.
‘Try’ on a pair for size now by taking the ‘One Day’ video tour here:
Personally, I like Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge’s look better still. But that’s just me.
