Google Project Glass: Augmented Reality Headgear [Video]
Google’s Project Glass, which is in its conceptual phase, intends on augmenting your perception of reality by superimposing images in front of your eyes using specially designed virtual-reality headgear.
While Project Glass is still an infantile stage, the creators over at Google are interested in acquiring public feedback which they will take into account while continuing to research and develop this innovative new reality augmentation technology.
The headgear is essentially glasses at this time, though that could change in the future, which are designed to seamlessly integrate a layer of technology between you and your perception of the outside world. Imagine the advantages of Bluetooth headsets, such as hands-free voice control, integrated into a pair of glasses with transparent lenses capable of superimposing images in front of your eyes and you have Project Glass.
The secretive Google X team, who work on their wild idea type of projects including the self-driving automobile, is behind Google Project Glass.
Those tired of lifting their sophisticated cellular devices in order to read the latest news, chat with friends, change the music selection, get directions, respond to e-mails, call friends, and so on just might find Google’s new reality augmentation device useful as you’ll no longer have to strain your body to interact with the virtual world. With voice activated control and a display that’s not only attached to your head, but positioned directly in front of your eyes, you shouldn’t have any trouble interacting with technology as it will be seamlessly integrated into your life.
If you’re interested in living in a real virtual world through Google’s innovative new reality-augmenting glasses, the company reports that they are intent on releasing the glasses by the end of the year at a price of $250 to $600 which is relatively inexpensive for the amazing new technology known as Google Project Glass.
