In this undated handout photo provided by the Google[x] group's 'Project Glass,' an early prototype of Google's futuristic Internet-connected glasses, are modeled. AP photoGoogle has shared photos and a concept video of its reality eyewear “Project Glass” to obtain feedback about the equipment, BBC reported today.
The streamline-designed eyewear contains a microphone and a partially transparent video screen that provides information on weather, location, personal appointments and more. The glasses also give their wearer the opportunity to take and share photos, listen to music without earphones and have video conferences.
"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," an official said. "We are sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input."
The company did not announce the price of the glasses or the date when they would be put on sale.
