Google Glass Project – Work still in progress
Google Glass is easily one of the most anticipated project in technology for this year. The Google’s augmented reality project has already created a lot of buzz and garnered a lot of eye ball views. But is the project really ready to go on floors? Well apparently not, as confirmed by the head of Google Glass project.
Babak Parvis, who heads the Google Glass project, recently shed some light on on the wearable augmented reality display in aninterview with IEEE Spectrum. While he did not mention any specific features, Parviz did reveal some of its basic capabilities— you can take pictures and share them. Parviz even added that the feature set of Google Glass had not yet been finalised and that “it is still in flux.”
Parviz stated that with the Google Glass, the company was essentially looking at a device capable of doing two things that would be useful to a lot of people. The first would be to develop a device that would allow users to have ‘pictoral communications’, i.e. have users communicate with each other with images and video. ”Right now, we don’t have any devices that are specifically engineered to connect to others using images or video. So we wanted to have a device that would see the world through your eyes and allow you to share that view with other people,” he said.
Parviz stated that they are constantly trying out new ideas as to how users can use their platform. Parviz also mentioned that they were working towards making the hardware and software more robust, so as to be able to ship it to developers early this year.
Google Glass Project
Google Glass Project is an electronic eyewear that can snap photos, initiate video chats and display directions at the sound of a user’s voice. Images depict that the bands on every headset were made to complement the shades of the outfit showcased by the models. Interestingly, reports also suggest that one model switched on the device’s video-recording function and managed to capture her view of the runway.
Project Glass is an intriguing concept. Google’s fascinating advertorial video for the prototypes was released recently. The idea that we could have mobile technology combined with AR in a lightweight, wearable module piqued the world’s curiosity.
