Google Project Glass Augmented Reality specs confirmed
Google has officially announced it is working on augmented reality glasses, which it believes could greatly enhance the world around you.
Project Glass, as it has been named, was first reported by the Wall Street Journal back in February, but this is the first time Google has acknowledged the scheme and explained the vision behind it.
The search giant has revealed prototype images of how the glasses could look and a YouTube video entitled ‘One day…’ which details what it hopes the glasses will eventually be able to achieve.
You can see the video below.
The video shows a user looking out of the window and seeing a weather forecast, following live walking directions, replying to instant messages and engaging in video calls.
It also shows users checking in at locations using Google+, while also taking photos and sharing it with their circles, all through voice control.
A post on Google+ says the company hopes the images and video will start a conversation about the features users would like to see employed within the fledgling project.
“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.”
The company has released no information on a potential release date.
