Google Produces Information Eyewear


Google are about to launch a new product that will enable you to access certain aspects of information from the Internet and displayed directly onto your glasses. The eyewear still appears to have a streamlined design despite their functionality.

The initial information and images will aim to be Photo’s, concept videos Google+ and social networking.

Images will be displayed on the users right eye where you will also be able to see things like information, weather, your location and appointments that you have made.

Probably the most important use for this would be Google Maps and Video Conferencing.

The New York Times estimated a pair of glasses to be $250-$600 (£157-£378) Quite a big difference for this innovation.

Google said that many companies were interested but the purpose of “Gaming and Beyond”.


  • Are Google losing it?

  • Where will technology end?

  • Is this a useful product or a waste of time and money?
