You know what the best part about this is?
Google isn't some little research group that can get cockblocked by some big organization. (like so many other awesome ideas like this are)

Screamers would be intense.
Better start saving......fuck my wallets gonna kill me.

If they can lock onto targets...I want a pair
[quote]would cost about as much as a smartphone, so they likely won't be for the light wallet[/quote]
That won't stop anyone.
These would be amazing in aviator form.
please dont turn into Noteslate. Actually, Google, please pick-up Noteslate.
I'm still waiting for a pip-boy style wrist interface. Make it happen, google.

I was actually expecting more. If they're selling for the prices of smartphones, there will be plenty of buyers.
so it's [url=http://www.google.com/mobile/goggles/#text]google goggles[/url], with actual goggles. I'm interested.
[QUOTE=gazzy_GUI;34811525]How would we focus on the screens?[/QUOTE]
They could do a projection that only we could see with the glasses of stuff that would actually be a couple of feet from us letting us focus on said screens?
I wanna know what they'll look like.
[QUOTE=Sottalytober;34811108]Can they make them cheap glasses that hook up to an expensive android phone?
I'd have one of the requirements filled then[/QUOTE]
Yeah, I want them to be compatible with my Galaxy Nexus.
I've wanted something like this ever since the Airscouter was announced, but it's always talk and prototypes, and never a working, sellable model.
Not that Google can't do it, but it's an old idea, and more than one company has tried it before.
We're not far off from having augmented eyes that can take pictures and send them to Facebook.
For some reason I was thinking wine glasses. :v:

Without your consent, if that is made by google as well.
Shiitttttt that's fucking awesome looking. Google, I don't care if you take over the world, I welcome any and all technological advancements you bring with your domination.

If so, that is actually a shot from Iron Man 2 I believe (namely because it shows the Iron Man suit in the top right corner and they mention Iron Man at the end of the article.)
And then, suddenly...*pops hands* Apple.
This is a good idea, I wonder how much they might cost? My guess is about the price of the Galaxy S II.
Yeah, I'm sure a month or two after they are released, Apple will file a lawsuit claiming that they somehow infringe on some copyright or patent.
"Well, clearly they have infringed on our property by having a device power by some manner of battery system, a device that displays information and graphics, and a device that allows the user to interact with it. Please give us their money and stop them from selling this immediately."

With or without a contract? The phone itsself is insanely expensive.
Also, inb4 Deus Ex[/QUOTE]
But your avatar is Jensen in the shower.
So when you came into this thread there already was Deus Ex.
I'd prefer an interface that I control through a little joystick on my hand or something. Or a smartphone. Yeah probably the smartphone with the joystick thing as a backup.

Tape an Android to your wrist.
If you were to code in building blueprints like you can with roadways in Google maps, couldn't you do an indoor HUD map to find the nearest restroom?
If they could put some strength into the glass in them, they would get ALL my dosh as I could use those instead of my regular glasses. If you have to wear glasses, why not wear a couple by Google in style of Adam Jensen? :v:
