Tech 5 News - The Google Glass_13388369
MANY of us might not know but many of our modern inventions could be first seen on the popular 1960s sci-fi series Star Trek.
From flip phones, PCs, tablets, biometrics, Bluetooth to the sliding doors we use today! One invention, which is becoming a great hit is the use of Augmented Reality (AR).
Augmented Reality, simply put, is a simulated view of the environment adding sound, smell and graphics into real world display.
The ultimate goal of AR is to make the user unable to tell the difference between the real world and the augmented view of what they see. The iPhone and Google both have the audacity of producing AR software.
The new Google Glasses should be able to, after further developments, use AR software to video chat, take pictures, share pictures, access the Internet, voice commands, as well as the use of GPS.
This 1.3 cm computer built-in glasses is sure to set new grounds in technology. It is not only high-tech, but is also very chic and stylish.
Designer Diane von Furstenberg, as well as socialite Sarah Jessica Parker have been photographed wearing the prototypes of the specs.
Although very pricy, US$1,500, the Google Glasses won't be on sale until 2014, which gives us enough time to save and have the latest trend of chic AR computerised specs.
