In a post on Google’s generic brand social network, they revealed plans to develop what they’re calling “Project Glass;” a pair of glasses that allows you to keep in touch with your environment…via the internet. Essentially a holographic smart phone notification system with voice activation, the glasses biggest provocation, perhaps, is how ready are we to engage the image of future?
Almost like it was stripped from a sci-fi movie, this is what I’d imagine this type of technology would look like if the iPhone had a baby with Geordi LaForge’s visor (really makes you wonder what a baby between Steve Jobs and LeVar Burton would look like. Or maybe not).
The buzzing has already begun as people are speculating how it could work, what does it mean for the smart phone industry, and where they can get one? In the comments on the Google+ page, one guy goes so far as to say, “SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY,” denoting his excitement for the prospective project.
But check it out for yourself. Would you buy these, much less wear them? Google+ via New York Times says you could have them by the winter.
