It seems as if Google isn’t the only ones with the idea of multimedia glasses. While Google has been publicly engineering their Project Glass for a couple of years now, Olympus actually spend the past 7 years quietly designing and creating the MEG4.0. Unlike Google Glasses, the MEG4.0 isn’t a standalone structure and needs your personal glasses to hang on.
The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday on an opportunity they had to try out Google’s new wearable computing device dubbed Google Glass. You may recall the last big show by Google of the device they are working on was back in the summer when the glasses played a major role in the keynote address for Google I/O.
If you have already seen Google’s keynote on this years Google IO 2012, then you are well aware of the grand entrance Google provided on one of their latest and most compelling projects, Google Glasses.
It looks like the future is going to consist of wearing lots of funny looking technology on our bodies and everyone is joining the party. Today at CES, Vuzix showed off its own version of smart eye wear which will stand in direct competition to Google Glass. The irony here is that Vuzix is basing their eye wear off of Google’s Android software in order to directly compete with Google.
Last month Google’s Project Glass was all over the web and the buzz spread like wildfire about this innovative new tech. Basically as you see from the image above it’s a pair of ‘glasses’ that you wear that Google’s Sergey Brin states will let you be “free to experience the world without futzing with, like a phone”.
