Google Project Glass

This technology has been making the headlines just about everywhere the last few days; Google has now announced an eyewear prototype technology called Project Glass which will display augmented reality functionality over one of the eyes. This will allow the superimposition of virtual information, of which the most interesting one (currently anyway) is Google Maps.

The video above describes the technology in a better way; the implied future potential however is incredible for navigation (and many other application context areas). The technology at the moment has no price and Google has not really said when or indeed whether this will go for sale. It could however be an impressive leap forward should this be available to the public and also developers and researchers. More information can be found here.
