For the last few years I’ve been hearing about Augmented reality, mostly on the iPhone and iPad devices, as well as Android phones. Different apps have had some small glimpses of the technology. Then last year I was talking with some guys who are working on not only Augmented Reality Glasses but also contact lenses, at the time there were whispers that Google was getting involved with the technology as well.

Just today Google have announced their new Google Glass project with a YouTube video.. it looks pretty promising! I like the ability to take photos of what you are seeing, it will also be very cool for our Virtual PhotoWalks for the Disabled project.. you’d be able to share your exact view with them in a hangout.

I’m looking forward to seeing what can be done with this sort of technology!
