Wearable technology that displays a seemingly infinite amount of data used to be something you would only see in a science fiction movie. But with the development of Google Glass, we might be taking a bigger step towards a world where we can access data from the internet a lot ore easily, without even needing to stop what we’re currently doing. What Google wants to create is a pair of glasses that will allow information to be displayed right in front of the user’s eyes.
The device is expected to be controlled by the user making a gentle movement of the head or by tapping their finger on the temple. There are numerous uses for such technology. The user could access real time weather information, get turn-by-turn navigation that is conveniently overlaid on the roads being looked at, be alerted to incoming messages without actually having to look down on a mobile device and getting instant news updates. The wearer can also instantly take pictures or record video. Google glass will get its data from a smartphone that is connected to Wi-Fi or a cellular data plan.
The device isn’t yet available to the general public and isn’t expected to come out for at least a few months. The only people that currently have it are Google’s developers and a few lucky individuals that were selected as part of the “Explorer” program, who had the privilege of purchasing the glasses for $1,500. It is believed that Google glass will cost less when it ships to the public.
Google isn’t the only company that believes wearable technology is the way of the future. There are rumors on technology news sites that Apple is hard at work developing an “iWatch”, which is said to let the user make phone calls, look up maps or directions and show store contact information. Contact lenses that use LEDs to display information even closer to the wearer’s eyes are now in the later stages of development and may actually become fully functional once a power source is developed for them.
