Watch Google’s High-Tech Project Glass Goggles In Action

If Google had anounced they were developing new augmented reality glasses that keep the wearer permanently connected to the internet a few days ago, we’d be sure that it was one of the search giant’s many April Fool’s Day pranks. But it’s no longer April 1st, and the ‘Terminator 2′-style Google goggles are very real indeed.

They are part of  an initiative called Project Glass, of which Google released some details Wednesday. This video sheds light on what Google is trying to do with the technology, which isn’t yet available to the public.

There is a lot of going on there, but it basically seems like these Google goggles use GPS technology, Google maps and voice recognition software to keep you hands free and completely connected to the internet as long as you wear them.

Would that result in information overload? Not according to someone who’s tested the goggles, and who spoke to the New York Times’s Bits blog.

“They let technology get out of your way,” the tester explained. “If I want to take a picture I don’t have to reach into my pocket and take out my phone; I just press a button at the top of the glasses and that’s it.”

What do you think? Are you ready for this brave new world?
