personal computer has long threatened to become a reality.
On Wednesday, the rumors were confirmed, and the initiative was
finally revealed as "Project Glass." The search giant's Star
Trek-inspired, augmented-reality specs — which promise to beam data
from Google's vast trove of information right in front of your eyes —
are slimmer and sleeker than initial reports indicated.
Wearers, through vocal commands alone, can send instant messages, look
up directions, snap photos (and share them with Google+ circles), add
events to calendars, and video chat with friends. Google, however,
will be testing them in public very soon.
