A step closer to Google glasses
Wednesday, February 27 2013 | 00 h 00 min | News
Google recently found yet another way to tweak the curiosity of technophiles, by unveiling a new video introducing its new “smart” glasses called Google Glass. The video also offers a contest giving people the “right” to purchase (rather than the chance to win…) a Glass device before it becomes widely available to the public.
The new video puts us in the place of the wearer, to show us what we would see if we were wearing the glasses. The wearer can apparently give the device voice commands, such as take pictures or film a video of what the wearer is seeing. The product of the operation is visible in a small box with transparent grey background, in which text, pictures, and videos are displayed by the glasses.
The video and pictures also available on the Google site suggest a number of usage possibilities for the new device, which are all along the same lines: have a smart-phone-like device attached to our glasses. The Google Glass seems to be intended to offer a new platform for applications already available on smart phones and tablets, such as GPS, text messaging, Internet, telephone services, and videoconferencing.
