When Google released their original concept video for Project Glass last April, it seemed like the company was still struggling to dream up an interface that wasn't, at its core, a smartphone screen for your eyeballs. There would be pop-up notifications for text messages, calendar reminders, and weather alerts; there would be applications, like Maps, that would show up in front of you as a large, mostly opaque, smartphone-screen-shaped window; there would be a Siri-like voice command function. In short, Project Glass seemed poised to produce a more convenient version of something that already existed.
But that was last April. Today, Google released a demo video showing off the new Glass interface--an interface that, from the looks of it, feels like something new:
As PCWorld points out, the new video also demonstrates some previously unknown functionality, like an advanced and fully integrated voice command system, a translator, Google image search, and Google Now integration.
The device is not yet available to the general public, but Google is taking applications for an elite set of initial users it's calling "Glass Explorers." Think you might qualify? Here's what to do:
That looks fantastic.
Besides walking into walls, these things are the future.
Make sure you read the Google page for the applications.
"Explorers will each need to pre-order a Glass Explorer Edition for $1500 plus tax and attend a special pick-up experience, in person, in New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles."
Make sure you have $1500 + tax + paying your way to one of those three locations.
This looks great!
I find it hard to not think about how it can go wrong, though.
Think about it, for this to be good everything has to be right; it needs a good internet connection, good speech recognition, it needs to not feel weird or uncomfortable and, maybe most importantly, not make you look like a total tool.
probably only Google could pull that kind of stunt ^^ AND IT WILL BE EPIC!!! ^^
