It’s hard to disregard Google’s X Lab-born Project Glass. News of the slim-lined, scifi goggles’ existence initially emerged this past February and it had not been long after that Mountain View’s own elite began to gasconade the heads-up display in public. While little of the device’s real application and functionality is known, we have actually been privy to particular features over the past few months, like photo sharing to Google + and also its capacity to overlay Maps. Though product lead Steve Lee shrugged off rumors of a late 2012 launch, it does appear the business’s itching to spill a couple of even more (jelly) beans at today’s I / O conference.
Sergey Brin simply rushed onstage at Google I/O using the glass units to provide us a brief demo courtesy of a skydive over San Francisco. Video recording of the jump, executed by four divers in a blimp, is being streamed live with Google Hangouts to attendees at the Moscone Center.
