Google is finally done.
Android 4.4 and Nexus 5, Google has also been the subject of rumors mills because of two very mysterious giant barges floating in San Francisco Bay and Portland, Maine. The latest talk is that these will not be Google Glass retail buildings but will, instead, be home to Google X showrooms.
Larry Page today was sporting the awesome and highly anticipated Project Glass Google Glasses at the Zeitgeist 2012 event in London. Showing off the pre-release and early stages hardware for everyone to drool over, then quickly takes a photo. More details and video below.
Charlie Rose has many sterling qualities, but the ability to hurl him around oneself like a sack of potatoes is not one of them. That's why this Project Glass sample photo from Google Fellow Sebastian Thrun is more interesting than the one he took live on the news show, because it illustrates the utility behind a camera that's truly hands-free. You couldn't snap this one with your smartphone unless you were okay with your son flying off in a literal example of a mathematical tangent.
heads-up display technology that runs on Android. Now 9to5Google is claiming more insider information, most importantly that the augmented reality glasses will be seeing a public testing soon, in the same fashion that the CR-48 Chrome laptop was distributed in early 2011. The source claims that Google is still ironing out the details, but whatever the company does, it'll be "soon".
impractical watch-phone hybrids, single function devices like the FitBit and gigantic head-mounted displays that are useless for anything but watching movies for about 20 minutes at a time. But information leaking out of the shadowy inner test labs known as Google X indicates that the company is working on nothing less than a personal Heads-Up Display (HUD), a staple of science fiction for decades, and the goal of many converging technologies like transparent screens and microscopic transistors.
