GOOGLE has released the first official picture taken with its augmented reality glasses that layer computer information over the real world.
|The glasses are mainly voice controlled, but can also involve head movements. Beware of strange looks.|
Project leader Sebastian Thrun took the photo of his son, while spinning him around by his arms, by using the camera built into the arm of the glasses.
The image was designed to demonstrate the kinds of moments people could capture if they didn’t have to fumble for their camera or smartphone.
|Users will be able to see communication from their friends, like text messages and social networking.|
They appear to run on a version of the Android operating system.
Project Glass is being tested by Google employees including co-founder Sergei Brin before they go on sale.
Google has not yet announced when the glasses will go to market. Nor have they explained exactly how they work.
|The glasses use Google GPS systems so they can provide directions as you walk around.|
