Google glasses offer email, video chat

United Kingdom,Science/Tech, Thu, 05 Apr 2012 IANS

London, April 5 (IANS) Google's techno-glasses offer emails, video chat and even directions over your view of the world.


You can experience all these through a built-in screen in front of your eyes.


The glasses are a product of Google's "Google X" blue-sky ideas lab - and the search giant is looking for ideas to improve them, the Daily Mail reported Thursday.


"We think technology should work for you-to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don't," says Google.


The glasses appear to run a variant of the Android operating system, using the same microphone icon and other recognisable parts of Google's mobile OS.


The glasses layer information "over" the world, and offer directions - as well as allowing users to "locate" one another in the real world, as with Google's current Latitude system.


"A group of us from Google X started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world," Google said.


Various leaks had hinted that Google wanted to move into wearable computing.


However, no release date has been confirmed for the glasses - nor has Google explained exactly how the glasses work.
