Project Glass is awesome. Right? The augmented reality headset that will be bringing the phase of wearable technology into our lives all led by Android, Google Now, and our voices. We're huge fans of Google's Project Glass, and this new parody video that hit the web earlier this week is a must see. It's called How guys will use Google Glass.
Project Glass augmented reality device is slowly but surely gaining more and more interest from the public, while also getting closer to actually being able to be purchased. I'm sure many of you would jump at the opportunity to wear these smart glasses, myself included, but Google's next step is to give Project Glass some style.
Project Glass is one of the more exciting things I'm looking forward to seeing in 2013. Back at Google I/O we got our first solid look at the new wearable technology, as well as the opportunity to pre-order one ourselves. While news on Google Glass has been slow as of late, later this month and early February Google will be holding a hackathon where we'll get to experience Project Glass first hand.
Field Trip App for Android, and now they're back with a worldwide mobile game based on AR, and it's called Google Ingress.
Field Trip. Which is being marketed and described as “your guide to the cool, hidden, and unique things in the world around you.” Today we've got wind of something new called the +Niantic Project and a few videos below will get you started.
Google is apparently close to inking yet another deal to buy up the popular Augmented reality and facial recognition company Viewdle. Google's been on a roll as of late, but this is a pretty unique acquisition given the possibilities. Viewdle is a Ukrainian company that specializes in AR and facial recognition technology and software that automatically tags faces in photos.
Project Glass is still a long, long ways from reaching my hands and face sadly. Today however we are now one step closer to getting to try out, enjoy, and possibly learn more about Google Glass. You should all know plenty about Google's futuristic Augmented Reality eye-wear already, but hopefully we'll be learning more soon. Sergey Brin himself sent out info on Glass, and we have the details.
Project Glass might not live up to the rather lofty expectations set by the preview video. But there's no denying that it's an awesome idea, and even if it flops like a one-winged seagull every geek who's ever seen The Terminator wants to try it out. In addition to patents for the basic concept, Google has added some interesting control ideas, spotted by Patentbolt. The basic idea is that visible patterns or objects on a users' hands could be used to access the user interface in the heads-up display.
SuperHero AR app from the Google Play Store you might just see all of this, at least through the camera of your Android smartphone.
