VIDEO: Google Unveils Augmented Reality Technology, 'Project Glass'
Today Google released the idea of their new take on "augmented reality," a technology called Project Glass, which refers to a pair of sleekly designed glasses with a horizontal head-mount that displays information currently available on most smartphones, including the new Siri.
Project Glass is part of research and development at the top-secret Google X Lab, which is also working on the prototype of the self-driving car.
Google released a video for Project Glass, showing the glasses wearer doing everything from listening to music, taking pictures, and getting directions, to talking on video chats and scheduling reminders for himself. In the future, the Project Glass technology would be able to integrate with people's normal eyewear.
In February, the New York Times teased the idea of Project Glass, suggesting that they will cost "around the price of current smartphones" and be available late this year.
The stereotypically "techy" appearance of the eyewear is causing many to compare Project Glass to technologies worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Terminator movies, LeVar Burton in Star Trek: The Next Generation, and even Steve Martin in The Jerk.
