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.


Looks fucking awesome, except how goofy they look.. haha. Would be awesome as contact lenses or films you can stick on normal sun/prescription glasses.

Would be awesome, except for the fact I have perfect vision and don't have any kind of eye wear.

Ubuntu did it as an April Fools joke, but Googles looks for real. Been around for a few months. Only recently releasing a video and pics

Only for developers, and only in the US. Still, means it's getting closer.

I really believe in Project Glass. I think it's going to be a gamechanger, the same way that the iPhone was. You can bet I'm gonna be queued up outside on the day it becomes available to consumers.

And only if you're at the conference.

Why would you buy first gen for something so huge(I'm not an early adopter)? Let all the idiots get hit by buses and get eye cancer first and then get the refined 2.0 version :D

yea that is the same thinking as me HB, I never like getting the first gen of stuff.

That's pretty awesome that it's so close. Hopefully they make it less stupid looking though.

If it was just a lens thing there would be lots of usable possibilities.
- Magnetised rim ones you snap on to your everyday eyewear or sunglasses
- Add some rope and it's an eye patch
- Put a light source behind it and project it on your wall when at home or dashboard when in the car
- Etc

I'm quite keen for the eye patch personally.

I enjoy being an early adopter. I had an iPhone about a year before they came to Australia, and for that year I was hot shit. People used to see me using it in the shops and come over and be like, "Is that an iPhone?? Can I touch it?" It was nice.
