The Growth of the Google-Plex

From Kurzweil AI:

In a post on Google Plus, Google X employees unveilved a prototype of the company’s “Project Glass” wrap-around augmented-reality glasses.

The glasses can superimpose information on the lenses and allow the wearer to send and receive messages via voice commands, similar to Siri.

A built-in camera can record video and take pictures.

“We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input,” the Google employees wrote. “Please follow along as we share some of our ideas and stories. We’d love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?”

The Singularity is here. These glasses could be a great memory extender and a great item to have for college.

The downside is that one could build a dependence on this item and natural memory would suffer.

Charles Stross predicted this item in his 2005 novel ‘Accelerando.’
