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)?
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.
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.
