Google reveal augmented reality glasses…here’s what you’ll see while wearing them [video]
Posted by on Apr 5th, 2012

Earlier this year Google announced that it was experimenting with augmented reality glasses with a built-in interactive heads up display and yesterday the internet giant released video footage of what you’d see if you were wearing them.

This is what they will look like.

And here’s a first look at the prototype Project Glass eyewear giving you a first person perspective of what they may be capable of.

Seriously?! That is the most nerdy hipster video they could possibly have made…who the f**k is gonna use those glasses to go into a library and pick up a book about learning the Ukelele in a day?

If you’re a guy i know exactly what the first thing is you thought of when you saw that. You’ll now be able to watch porn sport while walking down the street or talking to people.

This can only end badly.

People on their mobile phones are unalert enough as it is, throw in some overlaying visual distractions and you have a recipe for disaster.

And back to that lame ass demo video. What they should have done is make one showing a dude waking up in the morning, putting on the glasses and have this happen:

-Hot girl in the corner saying ‘Hi babe..you are a legend. These are the sports scores from last night.”

[Round-up of all the results from your favourite sports]

-Hot girl in the corner saying ‘ Don’t forget it’s your mom’s bday today dumbass’.

-You walk to the toilet and hot girl tells you all the relevant news events that happened while you’re taking a dump.

-You have you morning cereal and hot girl tells you all the spicy random sh*t that happened on Facebook. She leaves out the ‘Lucy loves her new hairstyle’ kak and makes sure to include important things like your drunk mate ‘Martin got naked in public again’.

-You get in your car and drive to work while hot girl in the corner tells you all the shortcuts to avoid traffic. At traffic lights she does a little happy dance. Naked. Just for sh*ts and giggles and also coz that’s awesome.

-During the day at work, hot girl will remind you of all relevant deadlines and inbetween she will download Game of Thrones season 2 episodes for you to watch later.

-Hot girl does not tell you to check in on Foursquare or make reservations at restaurants or how to walk through a book shop or any other stupid sh*t like that because you are a grown ass man and you can do that yourself you lazy bastard.

That’s how the video shoulda been presented. Then i’d want those glasses.

Ukelele in a day?! Seriously…i will pk a dude for no reason if i see him carrying a book like that.

That’s a real project by the way! From the same research team that are making the Google driver-less cars. Project Glass is in testing. You can follow the entire development on their website. Link at the end of the post there.

LOL the “hot girl” sounds like a girlfriend? Pretty much a checklist of my day, except for the traffic thing.
