Comments on possible Google Glasses

Comments by Blair MacIntyre on Google’s possible “AR Glasses” picked up by a number of news outlets.

How Google Glasses Could Create ‘Augmented Reality’ by Year’s End
Mother Nature Networth – February 23, 2012 (Tech News Daily)
From a technical standpoint, a pair of commercially available, augmented reality glasses by Google are very possible by the end of the year. The display might look pretty good, too. So says Blair MacIntyre, a computer scientist at the Georgia Institute of Technology who founded the school’s Augmented Environments Lab in 1999. . . .”I think what gets people excited,” MacIntyre told InnovationNewsDaily, “is they imagine this future where I’m walking down a street and I can just see information on stuff around me.” Glasses make that more possible because people keep them on and don’t have to stop, take out their phones and run an app before seeing the added info. Glasses allow for serendipity. “It’s that idea of stumbling on interesting things as you go through your daily life,” MacIntyre said.

So says Blair MacIntyre, a computer scientist at the Georgia Institute of Technology who founded the school’s Augmented Environments Lab in 1999. Since December, the New York Times’ Bits blog and the blog 9to5Google have gathered reports from unnamed sources that Google is working on a pair of glasses that would present wearers with information about real objects they see in the world around them.
