Get off your phone and remember what it's like to smell the Roses. The Google[x] team just released a video about a speculative project tentatively called Project Glass that challenges users to imagine a world that not only brings information to you, but encourages you to continue interacting and living in it. Although the mockup of the actual "Glass" is not that impressive, the possibilities that augmented reality could bring to product and UX designers are infinite. Although it reminds us a bit of the Microsoft "Productivity Future Visions" video we shared late last year, it doesn't stop us from getting excited. What would you design if Project Glass was a reality? How would it shape your day-to-day reality? (See more images of Project Glass after the jump)
We think technology should work for you—to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don't.
A group of us from Google[x] started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We're sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do.
Please follow along as we share some of our ideas and stories. We'd love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?
