Project Glass: Google’s Crazy Future Glasses Revealed

By: Chris Crum - April 4, 2012

Google unveiled something awesome today, or at least the concept of something awesome. We’ve been hearing about the Google glasses for a while now, but now there’s a video:

On the Project Glass Google+ Page, Google says, “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.”

Let’s remember, this is technology that is being worked on. You’re not going to be wearing these Google glasses anytime soon. But I can’t wait to see what they’re capable of when they become real. Hopefully they’re a little more impressive than Nintendo’s Virtual Boy:

Either way, I’m sure they’ll look pretty suave as you ride ride around in a driverless car.

What do you want to see Project Glass do?

    I had not heard about Project Glass so far so I felt a bit disappointed as I’ve been thinking about this later by myself. Anyway, when I saw the video I felt much more relieved as my idea is much different. I don’t know how to contact people from Google but I am ready to talk as the idea is good to be integrated in their project and I myself do not have the resources to bring it to an end. I am sure you receive a lot of messages of the sort but this is really something. I am almost 50 years old and a university professor, I am not crazy, I just have an idea that needs Google to come true and Google, I believe, will like my idea.
