Google Reveals Smart Phone-like Glasses

courtesy Google

Science Fiction books and movies seem to be coming true, one invention at a time.  And, here is another, Smart Phone Glasses!  On Wednesday, Google unveiled a long-rummored concept called “Project Glass,” which takes the ability of a smartphone and puts it into eyeglasses.

The see-through lens could display everything from text messages to maps to reminders. They may be capable of showing video chats, providing turn-by-turn directions, taking photos and recording notes — all through simple voice commands, according to a concept video produced by the company.  Take a look.  It’s pretty amazing.

This is nowhere near complete, and Google says it only went public with its effort to gather outside feedback. The stealth project has been in development for two years by a small team of engineers.

The Google concept shows a video camera and a small piece of glass over the right eye, with no lens on the left. That half-and-half design was an intentional choice.

Google thinks technology should work for you — to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.

What do you think?  Would you use these?  Doesn’t it seem that in the future, our phone will be out of date?  Many things to ponder.
