Yesterday, Google revealed Project Glass, its vision of the next frontier of the computer interface (emphasis on face). Google hopes we’ll want to wear augmented reality glasses that display navigation, communication and other kinds of day-to-day data right before our eyes, superimposed on the world.
What will this really look like? How will it work? What can we do with it? Is this even a future we want? ReadWriteWeb’s Jon Mitchell and John Paul Titlow were joined by Sherilynn Macale in our weekly +ReadWriteWeb Hangout On Air to talk about the implications of augmented reality.
Here are links to some of the posts and topics we talked about:
- Google+: +Project Glass
- Project Glass concept video
- Google Glasses: A New Way to Hurt Yourself(parody video)
- Nokia Morph concept video
- Wikipedia: Hedonic treadmill (aka hedonic adaptation)
We hang out at 11:00 a.m. Pacific on Thursdays, and you’re welcome to join us or just watch live. (Here’s the time for every time zone.) Make sure to follow +ReadWriteWeb on Google+ if you want to watch or participate. We’d love to have you!
