We gave you the first information on a secret Google display glasses project in February. Now it is official. Google has revealed Project Glass; an augmented-reality display glasses technology.
Google’s Project Glass
Google has been working on "heads-up displays" (HUDs) for some time and has now revealed their intentions to bring a type of augmented display glasses to consumers.
Google reveal Project Glass
Google calls it the Project Glass and says; We think technology should work for you—to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t. A group of us from Google started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do. Please follow along as we share some of our ideas and stories. We’d love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?
Project Glass has come out of Google X, a new division working on new products, lead by Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Project Glass is a concept right now and not an actual product yet, but previous reports have suggested that Google plans to market products based on the technology by the end of the year. Google says that it is unlikely that the product will be ready for a 2012 introduction. The final product is expected to cost $250 to $600.
