It’s fun for the occasional tech demo, but now we know the real reason that Google Glass, and other augmented reality solutions, have failed to catch on. The future they’ve promised us will eventually turn into the same nightmare that surfing the web has become—a sea of intrusive ads and countless another annoyances…
Lacking a decent keyboard for password entry, it’s tricky to secure a wearable computer so that someone else can’t just put it on and access your private files. But researchers have come up with a better alternative, by listening to the unique sound of the wearer’s skull.
Google Glass is dead, and the company is doing everything it can to make the world forget it ever sold the wearable experiment. It wasn’t a complete disaster, though. The product had occasional moments of brilliance, like this Lego Assistant app that walks users through building a complex model, without the need for a…
Google Glass, the company’s head-mounted wearable device could make a return as the company has put together a new group, dubbed ‘Project Aura’ to oversee the device and other wearable technologies.
Remember how useless Google Glass seemed when the search giant launched the geeky and invasive product? Turns out, some workplaces actually think they’re useful. And now, Google is now distributing a new version of Glass to select businesses.
The first Google Glass might’ve died an ignominious death, but don’t give up on face computers just yet. Google will most likely launch some kind of updated Glass in the future, and when it does, features like framing up pictures with your fingers could make it a whole lot better than version 1.0.
In tech journalism, rumors are like editorial gambits. Some seem like a sure thing, some just smoke and mirrors, while others still are very real but very far off. Earlier this week, I took a good guess at what I thought might pop up at Google I/O 2015. But there were a few things that were curiously missing.
You’ve probably been engulfed in the Apple Watch media maelstrom. Wondering what else happened in tech this weekend? Like how the new Google Glass will be made by a fancy Italian eyewear brand? We’ve got you covered with BitStream, our cheat sheet for tech news and rumors that might’ve slipped past your radar.
It seems that Google Glass is down, but not out: Italian eyewear maker Luxottica — better known as the company behind Oakley and Ray-Ban — has confirmed that it’s working with Google to make version 2.0 of the company’s faceputer.
The first time around, Google Glass wasn’t exactly a runaway hit. But the technology behind it will certainly be improved to the point where it can eventually be integrated into a regular pair of glasses. And for when that day gets here, there’s now a novel and subtle way to navigate your wearable display using the…
¿Te acuerdas de Google Glass? Nosotros casi tampoco. Google canceló el programa de desarrolladores del proyecto a comienzos de año, una señal que se tomó como el final del programa. Parece que no, o eso es lo que la menos asegura Eric Schmidt, presidente ejecutivo de Google.
So long, Google Glass. Or at least as we know it.
Si quieres inscribirte en el programa de desarrolladores Glass Explorer para probar Google Glass, mejor que sea antes del 19 de enero. Según el Wall Street Journal, Google se dispone a cerrar el programa, y dejará de vender el modelo actual de sus gafas de realidad aumentada.
Wearable computers are the hot trend in technology, and the holy grail for any electronics company is augmenting your vision with crazy computer glasses. Google started it, Microsoft's allegedly working on it, and Sony's got one too—fashion be damned. But at least Sony's new cyborg eye can attach to your existing…
Ever heard of Ralph Osterhout? He's known as the real-life "Q." He created underwater vehicles featured in two James Bond movies. He's the guy who shrunk down night vision goggles to a size soldiers could afford to wear. He invented some of the most popular toys of the '90s, including the Yak Bak, the TalkBoy F/X+…
Sony has announced a new display module that clips onto the frame of any piece of existing eyewear in order to turn it into something more akin to Google Glass.
