With the recent news about Google Goggles and the revelation that Oakley are doing something similar, augmented reality is starting to breakthrough from the realms of technical research into mainstream technology. With the possibility that the Sci-Fi movies of yesterday are getting closer and closer to today, Aurasma looks to make a small step into the iOS market that could mean one giant leap for augmented reality.
On Wednesday Google unveiled something that has intrigued and horrified people in almost equal measure; Project Glass. Google’s own description of the project is a mangled collection of buzzwords, but goes thus;
“We believe technology should work for you — to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.
A team within our Google[x] group started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment.”
Google are pushing forward with augmented reality, bringing us ever closer to being able to buy Google Glasses and see our world from a whole different angle (complete with ads). Whether this scares you, or fascinates you, I’d like to know whether you think augmented reality, in general, is the future?
