Google working on Internet-linked eyewear that meshes the online world with the real world
Google on Wednesday gave the world a glimpse of its vision for letting people look at life through Internet-tinted glasses. Images showed people wearing eyeglasses with stylish silver frames that featured tiny cameras and on-lens displays to discretely show information such as walking directions, weather forecasts or messages from friends. Built-in microphones let wearers command the Internet-linked glasses by speaking.
A video posted at a Project Glass page at Google+ social network confirmed the rumor that the technology titan is working on eyewear that meshes the online world with the real world.
Google took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable us to do. The glasses are a concept far from being brought to market. Google is sharing this information now because they want to start a conversation and learn from viewer’s valuable input. The project team invited people to express ideas for the glasses at the Google+ page.
