Google is in the process of testing a pair of eyeglasses that can stream data right on the lenses. The augmented-reality glasses are apparently referred to as Project Glass around the Google campus, where researchers are hoping to take social networking to a whole new level.
The glasses could show incoming voice and text messages, as well as provide directions and real-time updates on things like train arrivals or traffic. Some researchers also believe that if the glasses are successful they will be able to modify the augmented-reality format to fit contact lenses.
No word yet on when the glasses may debut, though a test of the prototype was posted on YouTube.
