In what is sure to be an ongoing trend, the future keeps arriving faster than I can write about it.
Check out this amazing project. If it’s legit – and an endorsement from Stanford suggests it is – we’ll soon have glasses that can record and share video. These guys have already developed Facebook glasses that identify your friends. Eventually, they plan to combine augmented reality, biometric data, computer vision, and digital information into a single product. In essence, they’re not content with Google’s latest marketing campaign, and are setting out to make real-life Google glasses, and a bunch of other wild products along the way.
Here’s the link to their kickstarter page. I’m tempted to throw them a few bucks just so I can get one of the first models when they pull this off! If nothing else, you should check out the page to get a feel for how sincere and excited they are. It’s quite endearing – you can practically hear the maniacal giggles. Well, I have to say, if they succeed, I’d be pretty excited myself. After all, this is the first step to completely redefining the way we interact with computers.
