I’m sure by now, many of us have heard about Google’s latest Project, “Project Glass”. This augmented reality is able to do some unimaginable things, in some ways we didn’t think we might have seen. Google is really stepping into the future with both feet.
Assuming that you just watch the video above, or seen it a while ago when this project was announced, you see what project glass is all about, and what it can do. Hangout with friends, basically making phonecalls. Messaging your friends and family from your glasses… Hands free. You can take pictures just by saying “Google Take a picture”. Then have that picture be posted to your stream on Google Plus. All the more reason for using Google Plus. Google, being smart, is releasing this in conjunction with all their services connection them all together, making you use them is a brilliant idea.
About the Creators
Sergey Brin is the co-founder of Google, and he is the face of the Glass Project. In many public events, he was wearing these glasses to show them off. Sergey is a hero of mine, not only because he is one of the founders of the company that got me interested into technology, but because of his ambition for the future, and ability to think outside of the box to lead the world into the future. Driverless cars, augmented reality, and extremely fast internet connections – Sergey is just a great person.
Google Glass could be life changing for some people. Its a new way to live life, a new way to share content; and that is what the goal is of Google Glass. Though Glass will not be a replacement for your smartphone. In fact, Google Glass will most likely not work with all smart phones, and will probably work with newer Android phones, especially the Google Nexus devices, bringing you totally into the Googleverse. Glass will most likely not work with iOS devices at first, but should be available for all devices sometime in the future. I say this because Google is not a company that keeps to themselves like Apple, and they really want everybody to use their services.
Though it is mainly with Android devices, I do believe that there is a Wi-Fi version too. But I kind of think that as not as good as being able to use it with a smartphone – being able to share from anywhere at any time.
Currently Google is wanting to get people to use Glass. They are offering Glass to some people as beta testers, and they want to know what you would do with Glass. To enter follow this link. Here you will be able to view all the information in this, and possible get your hands on one yourself from Google. However, if you don’t get one as a beta tester, you will have to go out of the way, and spend $1,500 for a pair of glasses. Google hasn’t released any information as to when they are going to open them into the market; more information as to Google’s plans will be announced more in this blog.
