The advancement in the field of technology is zooming at a super speed like a rocket. More and more new technological inventions are coming up everyday. The pace of the technological advancement is so fast that the last invented product or service becomes outdated before it reaches to the entire customer market and is replaced by a newly invented product or service of that genre.
Today, most people believe smartphones and I-phones to be one of the latest advancements in the field of technology even though only a few out of the global audience are able to have a direct access to it. How about smartphones and I-phones becoming outdated within a very short time? Don’t be surprised, because this is a probable reality which might shape up by the end of this year.
According to a recent New York Times article, the internet giant Google is planning to launch new futuristic glasses later this year with a heads-up display that will project information, entertainment and advertisements onto the lenses. The project, which is being led by Google’s co-founder Sergey Brin and Google engineer Steve Lee, is being built in a secret Google laboratory devoted to futuristic technology.
The futuristic glasses, which will appear similar to Oakley Thumps sunglasses, will continually stream real-time information to the lenses using a 3G/4G connection. The glasses will use the same Android software that powers Android smartphones and tablets. Like smartphones and tablets, the glasses will be equipped with GPS and motion sensors. They will also contain a camera and audio inputs and outputs. Featuring a miniature display on one lens, the hi-tech specs will allow users to surf the internet or deal with text messages and emails without lifting a finger. The screen is controlled with a ‘mouse’ which is moved simply by tilting your head. And if you still wish to actually talk to someone, it is believed the glasses will let you make calls using an in-built microphone.
The reported major feature of the glasses would be providing information to the user about the surroundings at his/her location. Through the built-in camera on the glasses, Google will be able to stream images to its rack computers and return augmented reality information to the person wearing them. This way, the specs will be able to bring up information about the person whom the user is meeting and well-known places where the user is travelling, as the user gets close to them.
The new glasses are expected to cost $ 250 to $ 600 and be available by the end of this year. Even though, the futuristic glasses may not be able to capture the mobile phone market, they will surely provide greater functionality and enhanced utility to its users for living truly futuristic lives.
