The intention was to create an augmented reality HMD (Head-mounted Display). This product will currently be available to the I/O developers based only in USA. And a customer has to shell out $1500 to get the device by early 2013.
One of the main intentions to develop such device was to display all the information to its user through a hands free device, which is in many ways similar to that of a smartphone. The project glass also facilitates the users with the opportunity of interacting through the Internet using natural language voice commands. The entire process is done in such a way that that it can be compared to Siri, a feature that is available only in iPhone launched in the mobile world by Apple. The operating system that has been used in the project glass is Android, a very popular operating system developed by Google himself.
The project was started in April in the year 2012. Sergey Brin, the computer scientist and the co-founder of Google wore a set of prototype glasses in a Foundation Fighting blindness occasion in 5th April 2012. Later according to a renowned newspaper report the glasses will be available for the users across the world by the end of the year 2012 at a cost, which is equal to a smartphone. But later it was reported that there is no chance that the public can reach the glass anytime soon. Google has taken the patent of design of the project glass.
