Google Glass has just received a big injection of confidence from Mercedes-Benz, who are working on a Google Glass project that combines both pedestrian and automotive directions that would take their users from door-to-door.

MBRDNA President and CEO Johann Jungwirth told the Silicon Valley Business that he wants Google Glass to seamlessly transition between walking and in-car navigation. This would actually be quite useful, as you'd be able to wear Glass, with it directing you on where to drive, but to then get out and the navigation to continue... that would be stellar.

We obviously won't see this in any Mercedes-Benz in the near future, because Glass isn't exactly ready for the consumer let alone ready for mass deployment in vehicles.
