Google Developing “Smart Glasses” To Push Information
By the end of 2012 we could be pushing information directly in front of our eyes thanks to a pair of Google Android powered glasses being created by the team at Mountain View.
The glasses will feature 3G or 4G connections and will stream information in real time to a small screen just a few inches away from the users eyes.
Also included will be a motion sensor and GPS alongside a low-resolution camera. Using those features a user will be able to grab information about a location and nearby friends while navigating that information with simple motion based head tilt navigation that also allows for user “clicks” on information.
Because the Google glasses feature a camera and can be worn Google X laboratories is also working on a way to show when someone is being recorded in order to respect everyone’s privacy.
Apple is said to be working on a similar product that can be worn around the wrist.
