This is freshly baked out of the oven of Google X laboratory, a futuristic gadget that defines how deeply interactive smart computers will be within our daily lives. A video teaser released by Google introduced Project Glass, a pair of star-trek-like glasses with voice-controlled virtual computing abilities. The slim line fits around the forehead with a small screen in the top right corner to transmit information to the wearer. The computer is thought to be powered by Android operating system, with an interface similar to their smart phones.
I’d like to see Apple’s move now, specially that this could be the next big thing for Google after the mediocre results Google+ achieved. Project Glass is still very much in development stages, but the initial prototypes have been created to begin testing and refinement. The glasses will not go on sale until later this year, in the meantime Google employees will be testing them in public over the next few months. The New York Times suggested they could cost between $250-$500 (€190 – €380).
Watch the video, if you’re a geek this will be heart-melting for you:
