The Future: Snap and Share Photos Using Augmented Reality Glasses

If Google’s vision of the future pans out, we may soon be snapping and sharing photographs using augmented reality “glasses”. The company is working on a product that’s currently going by the code name “Project Glass“. As the concept video above shows, the aim is to have a wearable “computer” that can project useful information about the world directly into the user’s eye, allowing people to constantly interact with the Internet throughout their everyday lives. The glasses would even be able to snap photographs based on voice commands, and then instantly upload them to the web.

Here’s what the device might look like (it’s a concept prototype):

    The prototype…doesn’t look half bad actually.

  • Frank Pavone

    What?? It doesn’t tell you where to order the ukulele book online for cheaper?

  • Zach 법수호 Lawson


  • WHysdsds

    Wait for version 2 to come out, along with the soul contract sell feature.

  • kernkraft

    I see a lot of accidents…. hit by a bus when the map block you whole view…

  • Mauricio Andres Ramirez Lozada

    awesome now we will see in fish eye mode all day

  • jdm8

    High fashion often looks more ridiculous than that, so it might fly.

  • Lisette Rozenberg

    cool… but how are you suppose to click on accept for example? push your eyeball against it? xD

  • RTFE

    This prototype actually uses/captures movements of the mouth. A quick darting out of the tongue will enable the user to “activate” the desired object or path.

    I’m just not liking the idea of having something projected directly on my eyeball. wouldn’t prolonged use damage your vision? and I’d imagine the shake make for one hell of a headache even just walking. not too sure how focusing would work either, but that’s why I’m not a google engineer.

    if this ever happens, it won’t be for a loong time. even if the technology is there, you’d have to wait for the rest of the world to catch up and integrate.

    *tongue click* *tongue click* *stick tongue out* “TAKE PHOTO. TAKE PHOTO. TAKE PHOTO. TAKE PHOTO.”


  • Lisette Rozenberg

    Maybe you have to blink xD 

  • Steve Wilson

    fascinating… but somehow I’m reminded of that Steve Martin movie where he invents a different kind of glasses…

  • Guest

    oh yeahh, the jerk I think? and everyone gets crosseyed and sues his pants off.

  • talkingtojosh

    as brilliant as the concept, video and marketing of this is…. i feel that society will only be driven towards more self-narcissism and as a result of that a stronger sense of loneliness if this actually gets made and gets adopted quickly.
