Google’s Project Glass

Augmented reality glasses could be coming soon, thanks to Google’s Project Glass

What’s cooler than QR codes or NFC? Augmented reality! Today, Google announced it’s latest project—Project Glass—which, is essentially a pair of augmented reality glasses.

From the video below, it seems as if Google is using augmented reality to allow users to perform such tasks as reply to a message, look up the weather, control their music, take pictures, get directions and have video chats.

Since the augmented reality glasses don’t cover the entire eye, the wearer can still see his or her surroundings and fully function.

Google’s augmented reality glasses are still being tested, and it’s doubtful that they’ll hit the market this year, but—do we really want them?
