These glasses are what Google has in mind for the future. They’ve already started their ‘Project Glass’ page to open up discussions from what you would like to see done.
From the video posted above, we already get a clear view of the full initial intent of these glasses. It overlaps what we already do with out smartphones right over the world we see with our eyes.
You can already imagine that this is just the beginning. There are tons of possibilities. Even something as simple as seeing the speed limit in the corner of your vision without looking down while driving. You see where the possibilities start.
The prototype version Google showed off on Wednesday looked like a very polished and well-designed pair of wrap-around glasses with a clear display that sits above the eye. The glasses can stream information to the lenses and allow the wearer to send and receive messages through voice commands. There is also a built-in camera to record video and take pictures.
We’re excited to see what they come out with after initial testing.
Imagine if they were secretly recording what you were looking at? That makes current privacy issues seem minor in comparison.
