As much as these glasses may look like a slightly delayed April fools joke, this is in fact a real concept that Google are currently pursuing. As you can see in the above video the device will power a small screen, which will be used to transmit information to the user. Although the selection of applications shown in the video are more of a 'what if', the device is likely to incorporate some of the features of a smartphone including maps and video calls. The device which is being developed on as part of Project Glass is quite far from release but Google X, which is a lab dedicated to projects pertaining to future technologies, have released the design now as they would like input and feedback from the public. Although the concept device is slightly lacking in appearance its exciting to see that Google are experimenting with this and other projects as part of their Google X project.
