Google’s Project Glass amazed and astounded the world with its vision of the future. Seamless interaction between the real world and your own personal digital world is something we see only in the movies. At Google IO, they weren’t really letting anyone play with their cool new toy.
Spencer E. Ante from the Wall Street Journal just got a chance to test drive Google’s Project Glass and had a somewhat uncomfortable but interesting glimpse into the potential of the project. Ante described the glasses as “a wearable smartphone” that was surprisingly easy to operate.
The simple command “OK Glass” brought up a menu and from there Ante was able to take pictures and even video. The phone like functions weren’t in working order yet, so Ante had to settle for the basics, but the basics were still pretty impressive.
The slight discomfort came from the instinctive desire to close his left eye, Ante reported. Nonetheless, he stated, “I could see their potential.” Google Glass could be the wave of the future and that future could be coming soon. Are you ready?
