Project Glass is a research and development program by Google to develop an augmented reality head-mounted display (HDM). Project Glass products would display information in smartphone-like format, hands-free and could interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands. The prototype's functionality and minimalist appearance (aluminum strip with 2 nose pads) has been compared to Steve Mann's EyeTap. The operating system software used in the glasses will be Google's Android.
"We believe technology should work for you — to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don't."
Project Glass is being developed by Google X Lab, which has worked on other futuristic technologies such as self-driving cars. The project was announced on Google + by Babak Parviz, an electrical engineer who has also worked on putting displays into contact lenses; Steve Lee, a project manager and "geolocation specialist", and Sebastina Thrun, who developed Udacity as well as worked on the self-driving car project. Google has patented the design of Project Glass.
