Google just released a concept video on how their long-rumored Android powered augmented reality glasses will work. Now officially called as Project Glass, the high-tech eye glass works how modern smartphone works like; setting up appointments and reminders, checking the weather, taking pictures, making video call, giving directions and playing music. Project glass works by displaying the information on the user’s field of view, as well as hovers the data on top of the object that user is looking at.
Google’s Project glass was first reported last February by New York Times and it said that the Eye glasses will be available later this year with a price tag ranging from $200 to $600, spec-wise Project glass will be powered by a still unknown version of Android, a 3G or 4G data connection and a number of sensors like motion and GPS.
You can watch the Google’s cool video after the break.
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.
Please follow along as we share some of our ideas and stories. We’d love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?
Google is currently collecting feedback and suggestion via a Google+ Post on what people want to see and their ideas on how Project Glass works. They’ve also released some concept design on how Google’s Project Glass will look like.
Google’s Project Glass looks promising, I really like the concept and what Google is trying to achieve here, if executed properly, Project Glass will change Google’s fortune just like how iPad is changing Apple’s. So what do you think about Google’s Project Glass? Commenting will surely won’t hurt.
