Google Reveals Project Glass, HUD in Your Eyeglasses

Google Reveals Project Glass, HUD in Your Eyeglasses

Google finally revealed Project Glass, an augmented-reality experiment with HUD interface in an eyeglass-like frame that brings the Internet to a small screen above the right eye, the gadget streams data to the wearer’s eyes in real time. You can watch the demo video below showing what you can expect from wearing such gadget from the perspective of someone wearing the glasses, receiving up-to-the-minute updates as information streamed into his glasses:

Google X Labs, which incubated Project Glass, is starting to see the light of day. We first saw the driver-less car and now Project X experience that was exclusive to Sci-Fi movies. Here is what Google had to say about the experiment:

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.

Is a HUD interface with such type of user experience anything you may be interested in or you don’t need more distractions?

The QWERTY keyboard was invented in 1874 and it is still used today, largely unchanged. Today Google has unveiled a new input method designed for the future: Gmail Tap for Android and iOS. Watch the video for details:

Gmail Tap takes the keyboard from 26 keys to just two. Every letter of the alphabet is represented by a simple pattern of dots and dashes, and once you know them you can type without even looking at your screen. This makes it ideal for situations where you need to discreetly send emails, such as when you’re on a date or in a meeting with your boss.
