    Google: Project Glass

    http://money.cnn.com/2012/04/04/tech...source=cnn_bin


    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Siri is about to get one-upped by Google.

    The company on Wednesday unveiled a long-rumored concept called "Project Glass," which takes all the functionality of a smartphone and places it into a wearable device that resembles 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 and released on YouTube.

    Project Glass is nowhere near complete, and Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) 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 "heads-up display" glasses were born in Google's Google X lab, which is the same future-thinking research facility that developed a driverless car and is working on a space elevator.

    Google has no timeline for when the device will go on sale, but Google X engineers are beginning to use prototypes outside of the lab's walls.
    One thing they're working on in field tests: The researchers haven't yet decided whether the glasses should be stand-alone or be wirelessly powered by a smartphone.

    The precise look and feel of the hardware and software is still in the early design phase, but Google produced a concept design that looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. They're not quite what you'd see on RoboCop or Geordi LaForge, but they'll never be mistaken for normal eyeglasses either.

    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.

    "We think technology should work for you -- to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don't," the company said on its Google+ page.

    The software design appears a lot cleaner than the hardware, with friendly icons and unobtrusive notifications. But Google's concept video portrays perhaps the loneliest vision of the future ever.

    A man starts his morning by putting his glasses on, then goes through most of his day talking to himself, without actually interacting with anyone face-to-face, save one friendly pat of a bulldog and a super-quick visit to a coffee truck with a buddy.

    A notification delivered in the morning to "See Jess tonight at 6:30 p.m." turns out not to be an actual date, but a video chat. As the sun sets, Google's protagonist remotely serenades his friend's avatar with a ukulele.
    What Google's final version will look like -- and whether it will actually end up on store shelves -- is anyone's guess.

    But Google X's futuristic sketch proves that those little plastic rectangles we've been accustomed to communicating through could soon be outdated technology.

    I'm beginning to wonder if we've passed the point where technology is facilitating our lives and moved onto it strictly dictating their course.

    Its amazing how fast the worm turns. 2 years ago when Google pulled out of China for refusing to cooperate w/ their censorship, they were the Leviathan of the tech world . . . the absolute envy of everyone.

    Fast forward two years, and people are starting to snicker at their fascination with projects that won't generate revenue ( Google Fiber, cars, this ), their obsession w/ forcing every product to interact w/ google+, and their downright antiquated big data systems that are years behind current software technology ( Google follows the same mindset of Microsoft in this regard, if it wasn't invented here, it's not good enough for our company ).

    According to the Vision Council of America, approximately 75% of adults use some sort of vision correction. About 64% of them wear eyeglasses, and about 11% wear contact lenses, either exclusively, or with glasses. Over half of all women and about 42% of men wear glasses. Similarly, more women than men, 18% and 14% respectively, wear contacts. Of those who use both contacts and eyeglasses, 62% wear contact lenses more often.
    when they can figure out how to deliver HUD functionality on a transparent-to-the-human-eye microthin film that you put on your glasses, they are in business. until then, a majority of the population can't use it.

    the killer app is brainstorm sextape functionality. that's game over.

    This month’s buzz award was won by Google’s secretive Project Glass, a concept in development by Google X Lab that promises to replace our smartphones with augmented reality glasses. It’s anticipated that this exciting futuristic eyewear will be available next year in stores. But Google Glasses are Sony’s Walkman compared to what’s expected to be consumer-ready in the next 5 to 10 years: Project contact lens.
    The functionality of Google Glasses, seen in this now epic product video, will be available on the contact lens; the major difference, of course, is display: While Project Glass uses a tiny screen in the upper corner of sleek eyewear, “Project Contact Lens”—as I’m calling it—will achieve the same effect of a screen hovering in the air in front of you but by layering micro-lenses onto the contact lens.
    The reason why Google Glasses will become obsolete is because the contact lens, by its very nature, has the greater chance of exploiting the remarkable processing power of the human eye. When the rate of information exchanged between the eye and the brain makes the highest speed internet connection look like a tortoise in a race, Project Contact Lens signals an important gateway to fully harnessing our natural power.

    It's decided. The first time I see someone wearing googgles or whatever, I'm sneaking up behind them and saying 'OK GLASS, Google photos of Lemon Party! And e-mail them to grandma."

    Meh . . .

    The ski trail part is pretty cool, but I know that there are ski goggles out now that cover that.

    It will piss me off to constantly see google offer emails pop up while I am YOLO'ng.

    Skiing with a trail map at 1:09 looks sort of cool.

    Eventually, this will be just be a contact lens, right?

    I want a HUD. I don't want a HUD designed by Google to sell me $#@! that I don't need or really even want. As I said months ago, this will be cool, but not because Google had anything to do with it.

    Just like they designed phones to sell you $#@!.

    Some people are dense. They will make money on the hardware, and royalties off the apps. Not off of ads that randomly show up as you walk. I'm sure they could have added that.

    why didn't they include real life type $#@! with some fat guy in a beanbag with cheetoh crums stuck in his navel telling glass to pull up pornstars with some battlestar gallactica on in the background?
