The Future's So Bright, I've Gotta Wear Shades: Augmented Reality Glasses

Google X, the special projects division of Google, has unveiled their newest creation, Project Glass.  These faux-glasses are part cellphone, part GPS, part camera, part voice command (ala Siri), part heads-up display, and part x-ray glasses.  Okay, we're just kidding about that last part, but these glasses are cool.  The glasses can do just about anything that a smartphone would do, but the UI is displayed in front of the user's field of vision and controlled directly through the glasses.  It is unclear when (or if) these glasses will hit the commercial market, but this article definitely shows where technology can go.  There is a video of these glasses in action on the article page.

Read the article.
