Project Glass’, Google’s augmented reality glasses, were revealed this Wednesday, April 4, 2012, at YouTube. The pair of glasses could interact with what the person sees and augments the wearer’s experience. It has the capabilities of a smartphone; could work as a day planner and as a camera; and could provide a navigation system, as well.

Project Glass’ operates using an Android operating system that can be voice-controlled and view controlled with prompts coming from small icons that appear just above the person’s normal line of sight.

Below is an excerpt from Google posted at its Google+ page, and at its YouTube video.

“We believe technology should work for you — to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.

A team within our Google[x] group started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment.”

Reportedly, a similar technology was sponsored by Verizon called the Golden-i headset, but it was observed to be ‘bulkier and less attractive.’ It was operated by turning the head up and down or left and right.

Project Glass’ is still under testing apparently, because Google had requested some feedbacks and suggestions about this new technology.

Below is the YouTube video released by Google about ‘Project Glass.’
