Google Goggles

The next time you see someone tilting their head while walking or maybe suddenly leaning forward (like to spit paan).. don’t be surprised.. they are probably wearing Google Goggles.

According to a recent NYT article, Google is planning to start selling heads up display glasses, like sunglasses but ones which can stream information to the wearer’s eyeballs (no, I am not kidding, it’s true!).

These will be Android based, of course and the tilting and suddenly leaning the head forward are expected to be Scroll and Click actions. They are also expected to overlay information about the surrounding buildings, associated information, etc using augmented reality. And of course, they will have data connections, GPS, motion sensors, et al.

The project is reportedly being led by Sergey Brin, the co-founder of Google and is being developed at Google X Labs – the place from where Google runs its most secretive and ambitious projects.

Maybe the time has come for Wearable Computing!
