Google’s Project Glass begins testing out in the wild

We’ve heard about Google’s augmented-reality glasses in the past, but up until now it’s just been a rumor born from Google’s secret labs. But, it looks like employees from Google X, one of the labs within Google, are ready to start talking about their plans, and they want you to be part of the conversation. They’ve just started a new thread this morning via Google+, where they are starting to talk about their new idea, Project Glass.

They’ve even released a video, which shows what you’d use the glasses for in a real-world situation. What’s more, though, is that Google employees are starting to test the glasses out in the wild, to get the best kind of testing possible. The idea is run the glasses on the Android mobile operating system, and allow for people to send and receive messages right on their glasses, plus other location-based services.

Obviously testing is still early, but it looks like Google is moving in the right direction. Go ahead and watch the video below, and let us know what you think of Google’s new Project Glass.
