This is a cool little video providing a visual portrayal of a concept that the smart folks at Google [X] group are working towards bringing into reality. Project Glass.
It’s not an earth-shattering piece of tech or a stratospherically original concept: i’ve been using it under the name of DVFrames (Data-Vision) in my Sci-Fi Cyberpunk & Dark Fantasy novels since 1996.
But it is great to see the in-life applications of the technology beyond the constraints the Gutenberg galaxy, breaking free from the pages of a piece of written fiction.
If you like this kind of tech then you’ll probably really like the following novels: Dante’s Fool; Iron Man Project; Edge and Dog Eat Dog (post-apocalyptic wilderness survival meets the high-tech of Living Cities).
Positive blurb from Google:
We believe technology should work for you — to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.
A team within our Google[x] group started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment.
Follow along with us at http://g.co/projectglass as we share some of our ideas and stories. We’d love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?
