For Nerds Only, Google Project Glass

This for the nerds out there only. (No geeks or dweebs, please.) What if your glasses could display all sorts of information on its head’s-up display (HUD)? 

Project Glass from Google

Siri is about to get one-upped by Google.

The company on Wednesday unveiled a long-rumored concept called “Project Glass,” which takes all the functionality of a smartphone and places it into a wearable device that resembles eyeglasses.

The see-through lens could display everything from text messages to maps to reminders. They may be capable of showing video chats, providing turn-by-turn directions, taking photos and recording notes — all through simple voice commands, according to a concept video produced by the company and released on YouTube.

Project Glass is nowhere near complete, and Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) says it only went public with its effort to gather outside feedback. The stealth project has been in development for two years by a small team of engineers.

The “heads-up display” glasses were born in Google’s Google X lab, which is the same future-thinking research facility that developed a driverless car and is working on a space elevator.

Google Project Glass or Ray Ban Wayfarer?

I wonder if they will release a sunglass version. I want to look cool while I jet around town.

Wait, what the heck was I thinking, these shades are for nerds only! No Navy Sailors need apply. . .

Google regrets to inform you: at this time they will only be releasing normal glasses. No Ray Ban-isn Wayfarers.

  1. Of course, I have the Siri function on my IPhone..I still haven’t figured it all out..I don’t know what I do to call it up, but I’m in the middle of something and Siri is there asking if she can help. I didn’t call her, ask for advice or presence and frankly I don’t know how to get rid of her once she arrives. I say ‘nothing’ and she comes up with a ‘Nothing but Bundt’ cake store…and I’ve been there..they make delicious bundt cakes with cream cheese frosting..so what do I do with a function I barely understand and for the moment don’t need and didn’t even ask for? You tell me..I’m still trying to figure out the IPhone…k

  2. It’s like the lazy person’s iphone. You don’t even have to hold it in your hand or look down. But I think that Google should not get the credit – didn’t Tom Cruise use this technology in the first Mission Impossible?
