Google Finally Unveils Their Augmented Reality Glasses [Video]
Google has just unveiled their Project Glass. Yes, they are augmented reality based glasses and NO they won’t make you look like a retard walking on the streets. These are surprisingly amazing but they were expected, “people familiar with the matter” leaked some information regarding this project earlier this year which lead to rumors that Google is indeed working on augmented reality based glasses which will be released very soon. They’re finally here and they look freakishly insane ONLY if they work the way Google has demoed. These glasses will definitely add something “extra” in your daily routine walk around the town.
We think technology should work for you—to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.
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.
With Google’s augmented reality based glasses you can do a lot of things when you’re on your feet. They allow you to make video calls, voice calls, they’re even equipped with a camera so that you can take pictures while you’re walking around. Some other things you can do with this gadget includes sharing pictures on your Google+ account, weather updates, it has has a friend finder kind of thing which locates your friends who’re nearby. You can check in to places, buy tickets, and do lots of crazy stuff. But are they worth it? Well, if you’re a gadget lover then you’d buy them right away but some people may give it a second thought.
A possible launch date of these glasses is still not available but it is highly speculated that these glasses would come out by the end of this year.
Here’s a demo video which Google released earlier today:
We will keep you updated on this, stay tuned!
