Google Glass – Projected 2013 Release Date

Source: Daily Mail, May 2012

‘They’re a lot further along than people imagine’: Google co-founder reveals that hi-tech Project Glass techno-goggles could be on sale next year

  • Google co-founder now working exclusively on glasses
  • Could be released as early as 2013
  • Have been in development for 2-3 years
  • Glasses have built-in camera, GPS and offer email and web searches on surface of glasses
  • Prototypes now being tested outside Google’s offices
  • Pictures taken while running and on trampoline
  • Hi-tech Android glasses ‘layer’ computer information over the world
‘I have some hopes to maybe get it out sometime next year,’ said Brin in an interview with Current TV host Gavin Newsom.

The demonstration also showed off some of the technical details of the glasses, such as the fact that they have a ‘trackpad’ at the side which is used to navigate.

The glasses are also voice-controlled.

Brin, who co-founded Google with current CEO Larry Page is now working exclusively on the glasses, he said.

The glasses also have a camera built into the arm – and the glasses are starting to be seen increasingly outside the Google offices, with co-founders Larry Page and Sergei Brin both wearing the techno-specs at public events.

The screen is controlled by voice and by tilting your head, so one catch may be a few funny looks in the street.
