Google Adds a Bit of Sci-Fi to Our common lives
Although it is the twenty-first century, that is the “future” according to science-fiction authors, you can hardly find flying cars, silver jumpsuits and jetpacks. Even considering smartphones in our pockets, tablets in our bags and headsets in our ears, everything looks very boring and absolutely non-futuristic.
However, times change. Recently Google has announced a new gadget that may add a little bit of science fiction to our lives.
Google’s glasses with a heads-up display, 3G/4G data connection and Android operating system are reported to be released in the nearest future (but unlikely this year, despite all the rumors) and will cost around the price of an average current smartphone – between $150 and $600.
On the official Google Plus page of Project Glass, it was said that Google researches had already made some tests. You can also watch a video that shows you how those glasses work and what they can do. And they can do a bunch of things. With these glasses you can check calendar, weather, Gmail, capture shoots and share them via Circles, chat, listen to music, etc. and do that solely by voice commanding.
The only thing remains unknown is how people would meet this product? Would they start wearing glasses from the first day? Wouldn’t they be afraid of looking “dumb” on streets? What do they want most of all from this project?
Well, Google is interested in those aspects too. And you can tell your opinions directly on Project Glass’ page on Google Plus.
