|A concept of how the glasses could look.|
Today Google announced on Google+ the long rumored augmented reality project Google glasses, code-named "Project Glass," and said that they are being developed by the Google X labs (the lab that's developing the self-driving car). The Google+ Project Glass page explains,
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[x] 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?
Google has not said when the glasses will come out.
