"We think technology should work for you—to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.
A group of us from Google[x] started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do."
Reportedly the glasses, which would eventually sell for around $500, are far from finished. Google is coming out about them now, looking for feedback.
It is unknown how Google plans to allow you to control the glasses. The video shows some things being voice activated, but is unclear on other things.
Concerns also revolve around what problems images flashing before your eyes could do. The distraction factor would go well beyond that of which phones are already causing. Health concerns have also been brought up, as people are unsure of whether the screen and images being so close to the eye would cause damage to it.
Whatever the answers to those and other questions. Project Glass is clearly a step towards the future of technology.
