Google Project Glass Gets Independent Test Drive

There has been a huge amount of speculation surrounding Google’s Project Glass, with Google co-founder Sergey Brin and the Google X team largely keeping the tech at close quarters.

However, on a visit to the search giant’s New York office, Wall Street Journal tech journalist Spencer Ante got to test drive the futuristic eyewear.

According to Ante, the glasses were ‘disorienting’ and ‘uncomfortable’, but he did state that after some time using them he could see that they could have long term potential.

The short test did expose some incredibly interesting tech built into the glasses, including the ability to perform functions via voice-activated commands, and time lapse photography capabilities.

However, the test model tried out by Ante was lacking much of the final software expected to feature in the commercial release and as such, the glasses came across as slightly disappointing.

Google Project Glass is expected to be made available to the public early next year, with a price tag of around £900.
