Google's Project Glass


As reported on this blog in February (See: Google HUD Glasses), Google has been working to put augmented reality glasses on the market by the end of the year.  On Wednesday, Google officially unveiled the effort and gave it a name: Project Glass.  To learn more, use the link below, or view the video:

Comment: I love Google for their willingness to push the edges of what's possible. By doing so, they are helping shape a future where the delivery of location services will substantially improve the ability of the Emergency Services Sector to do its job. Specifically, without this kind of effort, awareness that the data services needed to make this product work to the degree envisioned (closed subway, bookstore navigation, etc.), would still be decades away.  Instead, Google has shrunk that time span to being only years away.
