Seen this video? It’s a new concept video from Google, formally announcing Project Glass, their augmented reality glasses.
The technology exists – Sergey Brin was seen wearing some recently – though presumably it’s nowhere near the level of sophistication shown in the video yet. Still, it’s cool to see Google having a real go at this, particularly as an Android fan (and glasses wearer).
On the other hand, augmented reality is one of those areas of tech that I always think looks really cool and futuristic, but that I’ve never found fun enough or useful enough to stick with. I know that’s not true of everyone, though; Paul Wilks wrote a great roundup of AR apps that he enjoys.
So as much as I love the concept video and underlying idea, I don’t think I’ll be buying a pair of these on release day. What about you?
