Google starts to send the developers of augmented reality glasses


Over the next few weeks, Google will send Google Glass to developers. Improved consumer model is expected in 2014.

Light points that looks just like conventional reading glasses except lenses connected to headphones are inserted in the whole electronic filling the same as the smartphone Android: a microprocessor, a memory chip, a battery, speaker, two microphones, the camera, the antenna Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, accelerometer, gyroscope and compass. Microdisplay is located in front of one eye.

This equipment allows the glasses to record conversations of his vehicle and the people around them, and to keep the records in the cloud, respond to voice commands, tapping his finger and touches to a headset, which acts also as a touch-control panel; every ten seconds to shoot a photo. Prototypes are connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and smartphone. The delivery of future models may be included cellular antenna.

Points will have applications Google+ and Google Search, but it will provide a more complete sense of immersion than a PC or smart phone. Ideally, as Beybek said Parviz, who heads the Project Glass, for speech to developers in June, they will allow you to access information "so fast that you feel like you know her."

These start-ups as Atheer, First Person Vision, Lumus and Vergence Labs are parallel development of prototypes of such points. The company creates Recon Instruments MOD Live, headset with display for skiers, which allows us to analyze their jumps. Such recognized leaders as Apple, Microsoft, Olympus and Sony also conduct research in the field of smart glasses and head displays for several years.
