Google Project Glass Sees the Future of Augmented Reality
Google is developing a set of glasses which will double as a social networking and locational information system.
The company said that its Project Glass team would be aiming to create an augmented reality platform which would bring the benefits of Google's mapping and social networking platforms into real-world experiences.
In a video demonstrating the concept of Google's project, engineers depicted a glasses-mounted headset system which could combine everyday information such as time and temperatures with calendar functions and messaging platforms. Additionally, the headset would let you chat with friends in various ways, see turn-by-turn walking directions, and take pictures.
