Default Google:Project Glass

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

By Taylor Hatmaker, Tecca
If flying cars and uncannily dexterous robots haven't tipped you off already, know this: the future is here. We're living in an age when Star Trek tech is getting realized little by little, and Google's just revealed a secret undertaking that checks one more sci-fi innovation off the proverbial list.
Meet Project Glass: an augmented reality undertaking that's emerged out of the company's black ops innovation lab, known as Google X. With Project Glass, Google is taking a serious look at augmented reality. What would life be like if rather than reaching into our pocket for a phone, the data we need was fluidly woven right into our lives?
Google casts a wide net when it comes to researching projects that are a bit closer to the cutting edge than email and search. Its best known future-tech project is a small fleet of self-driving cars which have already hit the streets for testing in California, but it's reportedly also quietly working on a space elevator and as many as 100 other covert futuristic projects.
Not to be confused with Google Goggles — an app that lets you search for anything just by snapping a photo — Google's glasses superimpose what's known as a head's up display (HUD) over your visual field. The visual display, as you can see in Google's concept video, provides contextual information and lets you do just about anything a smartphone would, from texting and geosocial check-ins to turn-by-turn directions — all without lifting a finger. Of course, Google's conception of this ties right into its umbrella of products, from Maps and Latitude to Google+. According to the minds behind Project Glass, technology should "be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don't".
While the lofty technology is far from market-ready at the moment — a launch by the end of 2012 looks very unlikely — the glasses are very much real. There are reportedly many models, ranging from a Star Trek-inspired visor to a design that "sits over a person's normal eyeglasses." And Google employees will actually be testing them in the wild, so don't be alarmed if you bump into a seeming cyborg near the company's Mountain View headquarters.
The idea of a system like Google's Project Glass is to steep reality in immersive, non-disruptive data. All tasks would be integrated right into your visual field, keeping your hands free while still providing the informational amenities we've come to expect from smartphones and tablets. In the world of Project Glass, our devices' screens would melt away altogether in favor of translucent data draped right over the world as we know it. Who needs a high resolution display when you've got everything you need, right before your eyes?

Make them in a non-retard looking sunglasses frame and I'll buy them. And by buy them, I mean wait until they aren't several thousand dollars.

The first thing I want, is for the facebook facial recognition thing to link in with it, so it can remember my customers names / pull up new people ect when they come in.

I am great at remembering names, terrible at placing names to people.

Oakley has been developing Project Glass-style HUD technology since 1997



7
inShare

While Google managed to garner quite a bit of attention with the recently unveiled Project Glass, it's far from the only company working on glasses-based displays. In an interview with Bloomberg, Oakley CEO Colin Baden revealed that his company is working on a similar technology — and has been for quite a while. "We've been chasing this beast since 1997," he said. The company is currently developing the technology, but there's no word on whether or not it will ever actually make it into a commercial pair of sunglasses.
But if it does, Baden says that Oakley will initially target athletes before moving on to other markets. He also believes that his company has a significant advantage over the likes of Google — experience making glasses that people actually want to wear. But while Oakley has been looking into the tech for quite some time, there are still a number of issues to overcome, including creating a "positive experience" when using the display and making a device that isn't prohibitively expensive. Oakley already has at least some experience embedding technology into its sunglasses, with both its MP3-capable "Thump" line and Bluetooth-enabled "Rokr" series. The company clearly knows how to make stylish glasses, but whether or not it'll be able to include tech on par with what Google is promising remains to be seen.

Google patent application could give Project Glass one true ring controller to rule them all






Let's face it: right now, the head nods and other rudimentary controls of Google's Project Glass are mostly useful for looking good, sharing photos and not much else. A US patent application submitted last September and just now published, however, raises the possibility of more sophisticated control coming from your hands. A ring, a bracelet or a even a fake fingernail with an infrared-reflective layer would serve as a gesture control marker for a receiver on heads-up display glasses. Having this extra control would give the glasses-mounted computing room to grow by learning gestures, and it could even depend on multiple ornaments for more sophisticated commands -- at least, if you don't mind looking like a very nerdy Liberace. We can imagine the headaches a hand-based method might cause for very enthusiastic talkers, among other possible hiccups, so don't be surprised if Project Glass goes without any kind of ring input. That said, we suspect that Sauron would approve.

We can't even get smartphones to run a simple OS and some apps smoothly today, I highly doubt that we'll be able to get something a million times more complex and intensive to run off any barely noticeable, wearable computer anytime soon.

We're really not that advanced of a species to begin with. Everything in our world is still based on some of the most simple, unrefined things.

Google Grabs Handful of Patents To Help Protect “Project Glass” from Possible Future Legal Action



One of the best ideas to come out of ‘ol Mt. View since Android — Google is looking to protect their latest idea from that other company, by securing patents related to Project Glass. Four patents in particular give Google sole rights to a device secured by a set of spectacles, with a camera over the eye area and a nose-pad sensor to tell the device when it’s being worn. A couple of slightly more complicated patents were also apart of the paperwork. You’ll notice a little something about displays over both eyes, in which different information is displayed on each. Sounds like that could take some getting used to.
It’s sad that the first thing that comes to mind when a company rushes to grab patents for a unique invention is Apple and their legal team. Still, it’s nice to see Google planning ahead. Crazy times we live in.

Spaceships and space travel still aren't a reality, the Hadron Collider is just a giant particle accelerator, and computers are lots of little circuits, put on bigger ones.

We can't even successfully put a satellite into orbit half the time, let alone take a few pictures from the surface of another planet without crashing into it.

Bad troll is just terribad...

You do know we just launched a civilian space craft into space right? And that there are over 3000! satellites in orbit?

And that we have probes that have now left our solar system

And that we have successfully put vehicles on mars

And that you are a fucking moron

Houses are still made of wood,

Penicillin is still our most worthy drug,

Criminalized monsters still run rampant in society,

Many rockets don't even make it out of our atmosphere before they blow up,

Profit still trumps ingenuity,

And oil still reigns king,

Sounds to me like we're still stuck in the past, using age old technology to exploit today's world.


What did you expect, that we'd evolve from apes overnight? That's what you get for only using 8% of your brain, homosapien.

You know the whole "only use 10% of your brain" thing is bullshit, right?
