Project Glass Battlefield concept brings augmented reality to gaming

Project Glass has inspired its fair share of constructive conversation, not to mention parody. But the latest video to play off of Google's augmented reality project takes the cake and the checkpoint. YouTube user ThereIsACanal used the ideas presented in Google's now-famous concept video and extrapolated to see what "Battlefield 5" could look like when taken into the real world. The results aren't exactly a cinematic masterpiece, but the video does a great job at illustrating the possibilities inherent in augmented reality gaming.

When Google and company unveiled their Project Glass (aka Google Glasses) it was met with tons of excitement, and a few funny user-made videos too.

Google’s smart glasses begin testing as Project Glass

Rumors of an augmented reality system from Google have persisted for a while, but Google's finally taken the wraps off of the project under the name "Project Glass". It's a wearable glasses-like device that presents a transparent screen, introducing an overlay of web-connected data to your everyday life. It's not a full pair of glasses as some expected - the transparent screen is a small strip that hangs above the user's right eye - but it looks like it either connects directly to the Internet over a mobile broadband connection or uses a tethered connection from a phone.
