I wanna know what they'll look like.
I've wanted something like this ever since the Airscouter was announced, but it's always talk and prototypes, and never a working, sellable model.
Not that Google can't do it, but it's an old idea, and more than one company has tried it before.
We're not far off from having augmented eyes that can take pictures and send them to Facebook.
For some reason I was thinking wine glasses.
Shiitttttt that's fucking awesome looking. Google, I don't care if you take over the world, I welcome any and all technological advancements you bring with your domination.
If so, that is actually a shot from Iron Man 2 I believe (namely because it shows the Iron Man suit in the top right corner and they mention Iron Man at the end of the article.)
And then, suddenly...*pops hands* Apple.
This is a good idea, I wonder how much they might cost? My guess is about the price of the Galaxy S II.
Yeah, I'm sure a month or two after they are released, Apple will file a lawsuit claiming that they somehow infringe on some copyright or patent.
"Well, clearly they have infringed on our property by having a device power by some manner of battery system, a device that displays information and graphics, and a device that allows the user to interact with it. Please give us their money and stop them from selling this immediately."
I'd prefer an interface that I control through a little joystick on my hand or something. Or a smartphone. Yeah probably the smartphone with the joystick thing as a backup.
If you were to code in building blueprints like you can with roadways in Google maps, couldn't you do an indoor HUD map to find the nearest restroom?
If they could put some strength into the glass in them, they would get ALL my dosh as I could use those instead of my regular glasses. If you have to wear glasses, why not wear a couple by Google in style of Adam Jensen?
IT HAS BEGUN.
Still can't figure out how you'd focus on something that close.
Do you guys think they will allow prescription glasses to be put in combination with this? like the actual prescription part goes in front of the HUD?
I'd buy them if I could code my own applications for it. Nobody likes closed platforms any more.
gimme varia suit hud now kthx
This will be all fun and games until we get augmented ads...
I've never had any strong reasons not to have an iPhone.
But if Google come through with this... I might just have to jump on the green robot-train.
I'm not buying this until someone makes an application that converts everything into an anime style so I can forever live as an anime.
I regretting getting an iPhone now, so much. Please sue Google and make your own pair of overpriced glasses too apple. Pwease?
I never asked for this but these glasses are pretty dope
They should make a version that clips onto existing glasses as well as a full pair.
I'm surprised Apple hasn't said it infringes on something of theirs already.
Wish we could get an image of the HUD in action, because if I had the money I'd buy this instantly.
