Google Glass, also known as Project Glass, was revealed at last year’s I/O technology conference, promising a new generation of human-computer interfacing.
In simple terms, it’s the voice- and gesture-controlled computerised eye glasses we’ve seen in movies for years.
I’m not sure if Google is the first to produce something of this standard, but hey, it’s Google. That brings some promise of its own.
Glass has just moved out of the super-private beta testing phase, and Google is now offering regular folk the chance to explain why they deserve to be in the next stage of testing, which will include forking out US$1500 for a pair of the Glases.
…I want in.
