Google’s Project Glass, a pet project of Google co-founder Sergey Brin, is still in its prototype phase yet offers a glimpse into the future of wearable tech. (See the skydiving demo with the live video feed from the glasses at Google I/O.) Unsurprisingly, others have taken up the challenge of developing similar head-mounted technology, including Apple and Olympus. Apple received a patent yesterday for a “head-mounted display”, which, although it sounds like more of a killer peripheral for the iPhone that a standalone device, would no doubt whip Apple’s fan base into a must-have-it...

Project Glass has been the intriguing pet project of Google co-founder Sergey Brin, and although we’ve seen teases of the prototype here and there, Brin and company dropped some more details and showed off the specs’ potential with a presentation for the ages at Google's I/O. Here’s video of a live Google+ Hangout being streamed via several pairs of Google Glasses, which was just a precursor the epic live skydiving/rappelling/biking presentation the gang made at the conference: Although it’s hard to follow that level of awesome with boring old details, here they are: Once...

Folks have been clamoring for more on Google's Project Glass, and Sergey Brin--one of the co-founders of Google who is now burying himself in the R&D department--recently appeared on “The Gavin Newsom” on The Current with the prototype glasses perched on his face.

The visit was actually a bit awkward as you can see in the video, as it’s a lot of Brin and Newsom describing what they’re seeing via the glasses with no visual for the audience. However, Brin dropped a bomb when he stated... Read more...
The fruit of Project Glass, a project born from Google X, is essentially a futuristic-looking pair of glasses that probably runs on Android and bring the whole Google experience right up to your face (and left eye, apparently). There have been plenty of rumblings and rumors about these glasses for months, and today the Project Glass group released some tasty design concepts to keep the fires burning. As you can see, the shades look to have a lightweight metal frame, eye pads, and a small screen mounted in front of the left eye. You can see from the nifty video created by Project Glass that the...
