Google is to unveil a pair of hi-tech glasses with a built-in screen.
Google is reportedly working on a set of heads-up display glasses that would project a computer screen in front of your eyes, controlled by tilting your head. Hi-tech “heads up display” glasses have been under development at Google’s secret “Google X” lab for months. The Google specs have a HUD on one side only, the other side has an arm packed with a 1GHz ARM CPU, 256MB of RAM and 8GB of, presumably, flash memory, for operating system software load. The glasses will run a version of Google’s Android. With Google working on a voice-control system similar to Apple’s Siri, such devices could do away with the need for a touchscreen at all. The company is still evaluating potential pilot programs to seed these glasses to developers.
