Google’s “Project Glass” goggles are wearable AR

Google’s Project Glass” attempts to take augmented reality off the smartphone and put it into a pair of glasses that will overlay information and graphics atop the wearer’s real-time view of the real world.

“We think technology should work for you,” the developers say, “to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.” The system “helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment.”

The project posted a video here showing what the technology may do.
