One of the coolest scenes in the new Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol film involves Tom Cruise manipulating a map superimposed on the car's windshield. It looked like science fiction but Pioneer just made it a reality.
After weeks of hype, teasing and a few public appearances here and there, Google's finally come clean on just how much augmentation its Project Glass HUD glasses will provide. The truth: Project Glass is going to disappoint (initially).
The most exciting piece of technology without an "i" in its name this year is undoubtedly Google's funky Project Glass AR glasses. Previously spotted on Google co-founder Sergey Brin, Sebastian Thrun, head of Google X sat down with Charlie Rose to give us common folk a look at the future.
The battle to dominate your eyes is about to get ugly. Eyewear experts Oakley announced that it's working on glasses with built-in smartphone features. Sounds like ploy to turn attention away from Google's Project Glass AR glasses to us.
Back at CES, we met a company called Innovega, who was busy working on some special contact lenses that could enable previously impossible virtual and augmented reality devices. The BBC is reporting that DARPA has just placed an order for prototypes, and Innovega says you'll be able to buy yours by the end of 2014.
Who knows when Google's Project Glass will actually be released. We only know that Google co-founder Sergey Brin has a pair. One augmented reality expert couldn't wait, so he hacked together his own. This is what it looks like.
Yeah, we're not finished making fun of Google's Project Glass, but you have to give Google co-founder Sergey Brin major props for having the balls to wear said geeky augmented reality glasses in public. They're real, and it's more clear than ever that Google is serious about Glass.
It's been barely 24 hours since Google unveiled plans for its Project Glass augmented reality glasses and there's already a hearty spoof on it. You already saw Google's idea of what the future would look like, now take a look at the humorous dark side of wearing AR glasses in real life.
There were rumors that Google was secretly working on a pair of augmented reality glasses and now Google's made it official that it is indeed prototyping a pair of them. It's called "Project Glass" and it could change the way we live, or just make us ever more reliant on technology for everyday tasks.
So far, augmented reality has been primarily dispatched to control and interact with other humans, but a new system harnesses the technology to allow us to better control and interact with our increasingly useful robot population.
