Google on Wednesday gave a glimpse of its vision for letting people look through Internet-tinted glasses and enjoy web services in their face.
posted at a 'Project Glass' page at Google+ shows that Google is working on eyewear that meshes the online world with the real world.
The "augmented reality" glasses can snap photos, initiate videochats and display directions at the sound of a user's voice.
"We're sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input," Google wrote in a post on a Google+ page. The company also took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like.
In the video, the wearer goes about his day walking through New York City while speaking commands to the glasses to do things such as take a photo and post it to Google+, get block-by-block directions and weather conditions and get a pop-up alert when a friend is nearby.
Of course, as it typically happens with experimental projects, it is unclear when the glasses might be commercially available.
