Google reveals glasses of the future

Tech giant unveils augmented reality specs

THIS pair of futuristic glasses that look like something out of a sci-fi film could soon be available to buy.

Internet search engine Google has come up with the revolutionary specs that allow the wearer to do everything from finding the weather to getting directions.

The slim line gadget fits around the wearer’s forehead, with a microphone and a small screen in the top right corner to transmit information.

In a video posted by the US technology giant, they show off their high-tech plan, named Project Glass.

Filmed from the perspective of someone wearing a pair of the “augmented reality eyewear”, the clip shows an alert pop up when a friend sends a text asking the wearer if he wants to meet up later in the day.

Waking to meet his pal using an in-built sat-nav, the user also stops to take a photo using just the command of his voice and video chats with a pretty girl.

A statement from Google’s experimental lab said: “A group of us started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment.”

Google have not revealed when the device will go on sale or how much it will cost, but The New York Times suggested they could cost between £160-£320.
