Google’s Project Glass?

So Google’s at it again, being innovative as they always are. This time the buzz is all about their new augmented-reality project labeled “Project Glass”. It’s no secret that Google has been making significant advances into the development of artificial intelligence, and integrating it in our daily lives with their X Labs Division. This secretive division explores future technologies including AI and robotics to come up with things like a car that drives itself, and project glass. This cool piece of headwear hardware shows Google’s and this is a prime example of how AI software could be used further shake up mobile computing.

What it is, is a pair of wrap-around glasses which have no lenses, and a small screen above the right eye on which graphics are superimposed on your view of the world. On this small screen information about what you are looking at pops up, as well as allowing you to use voice commands. These voice commands are like those that we’ve seen, or you might have used before on Apple’s newer IPhones with Siri. These commands allow the user to set up meetings with friends, get directions in a city, find a book in a store, and even videoconference with a friend.

The team members of Project Glass, Babak Parviz, Steve Lee, and Sebastian Thrun, have expressed that this hardware is designed to help you explore and share your world, and think 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 of this new concept by Google, and do you think it will be the future smartphone killer?
