Have you heard about Google glasses or project glass? If you haven’t you should, and if you have, I’m sure you’ll have one of two reactions. On the one hand they look ridiculous and I can’t see myself ever wearing a pair of glasses that directly impact my life so much, but on the other hand they are very cool and if they work well they could revolutionise how we interact with the social computing world.
They’re due to come out in 2014 so they have some time before there released, so they will evolve and develop before they’re released. Currently they look like the extreme sports fanatics best friend and similar to the go pro in that sense, but with the added incentive of a heads up display they may just become an everyday thing.
They are similar to a smart phone with voice control so you control them much like you would an iphone 4 using siri, you can make calls, take pictures, and send messages by telling the glasses to do so. The display is AOMLEDs that project a display onto you eyeball notifying you of anything. The Battery is cleverly built into the frame to save on space. They have been designed as a stand-alone devise and although they will connect with your smart phone they are designed to almost replace it. Google have said they will be priced the same as a top end smart phone so we see them retailing at around £500.
They are a very cool piece of kit and I’m sure you could have a lot of fun with them. I can’t see them ever replacing the smart phone because they just don’t look cool enough, but people said the same thing about Bluetooth head sets and they doing very well, so we’ll just have to wait and see what the consumer market has in stall for project glass.
This is the question that is buzzing all over the internet at the moment and may well even be what you searched for to stumble across our website… well look no further as we are here to bring some light to the subject!
Google Glasses is the nick name for the new augmented reality headsets created by Google - We all all know Google like to create huge amounts of excitement and buzz around their new product launches and this time was no different, we saw the new Google Glasses presented in a super creative way with live feeds from skydivers and stunt men wearing the glasses used to show off this revolutionary new product.
The new reality glasses have been given the official title of Project Glass, which clever as it is doesn’t really describe what the glasses actually do and it is likely that the term Google Glasses is the one that will stick with gadget fans out there.
The intelligent goggles use a tiny transparent screen over the user’s right eye to display web searches, videos, photos, messages etc and can be controlled either by voice or by a touchpad control that can be attached to the user’s arm. They hook up to your smartphone and via tethering can connect to the internet for streaming and web searches.
So this all sounds pretty incredible so far wouldn’t you agree? Finally Google have come up with a real game changer that could actually boost their Android based phone sales and see them start to claw their way back into the smart phone market place to compete with the iPhone 5. This futuristic bit of kit doesn’t come without a price though and even at this early stage developers are being charged approximately $1400 for the privilege of being allowed to create Apps to integrate with the hardware.
The Google glasses release date is still not 100% confirmed but they have said they are aiming to have the device in stores by 2014 which more than likely means we will be able to buy them or at least pre-order during the fourth quarter of 2013.
Google Glasses is going to be the next revolutionary electronic gadget to hit our stores in the not so distant future. We will be bringing you the very latest news, leaks and release date info on this exciting development in technology.
