Google has finally confirmed that it is working on augmented reality glasses. They believe it could greatly enhance the world around you. The project is called "Project Glass" and was originally reported by the WSJ back in February. This, however, is the first time that Google has confirmed and explained the project.




The video below shows a user looking out a window and seeing a weather forecast, following walking directions, replying to instant messages and engaging in a video conversation. Google is looking to start a conversation regarding what people would like to see implemented in the fledgling project. There is no mention of a release date.


A group of us from Google[x] started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We're sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do.
