Incredible Futuristic Eyeglasses from Google

From KurzweilAI,


In a post on Google Plus, Google X employees unveilved a prototype of the company’s “Project Glass” wrap-around augmented-reality glasses.

The glasses can superimpose information on the lenses and allow the wearer to send and receive messages via voice commands, similar to Siri.

A built-in camera can record video and take pictures.

“We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input,” the Google employees wrote. “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?”

See video below

So eyeglasses with many digital based functionalities that can be found in today's Smartphones or the tablet. (X-Ray vision next? Lol!)

The pace of technological advancement has taken on a fantastic leap. And these have been enabled and facilitated by market forces in spite of the current spate of governments interventions.

And this is why I remain cautiously or guardedly optimistic about the future as forces of decentralization gnaws away at the foundations of 20th century centralized welfare-warfare states.
