Earlier this year, we wrote about the special augmented reality glasses that Google was rumored to be working on. Today, Google officially revealed the supposedly secret project to the world.
Through voice command, the wearer of Project Glass is able to (among other things) bring up maps for directions and locate places and people; take photos; record notes and videos; exchange text messages; video chat; and constantly view up-to-the-minute info and reminders like time and weather. Basically a ton of smartphone features and functionality for your eyes.
For those still iffy on the concept, Google conveniently also provided a handy video for you to gaze at. Trust me, you’re going to want to see it in action after the break.
While it may seem like it can get a little distracting, if Project Glass can be as seamless as it looked in the video, then the potential of its technology is limitless. It’s like staring at your iPhone 24/7.
One question, though: Can it play Angry Birds?
