Google's Project Glass turns Terminator-vision into an upcoming product. But is Project Glass feasible? Or even desirable?
Continuing its trend of turning science fiction into reality, Google officially announced its augmented reality glasses today — and yes, they look about as geeky as you’d expect.
Dubbed Project Glass, the glasses will allow you to do many of the same things you do with your smartphone without whipping out a separate device. It’s still unclear when the glasses will be for sale, but Google says employees will begin testing them in public.
In a concept video released Wednesday, Google showed how the glasses could take pictures, give you directions, check-in to locations, and even perform video chats.
