What good is a concept if it never makes it to the store shelf? Lucky for us one of the coolest projects in recent history – Google Glass – looks to be arriving sooner than expected. This thin, light piece of eyewear sports a built-in transparent screen, a microphone, a speaker and a camera, effectively granting its wearer with a heads-up display and responding to verbal commands in a manner that evokes Tony Stark’s J.A.R.V.I.S. Take pictures or videos, have Google Maps directions laid out right in front of you, send SMS messages, translate phrases and have them written and spoken back to you, or ask it whatever’s on your mind for a quick and concise answer – the future is [almost] here.
