Google Glasses Unveils First Video

It seems Google is always one step ahead of what seems technologically possible. Recently the company unveiled a new product called Google Glasses. The glasses are supposed to aid users in identifying images they encounter while wearing them. The person wearing the glasses takes a picture of what they are seeing at and it searches the web for the object’s identification including more information about it.

Images can include art work, historical landmarks, or barcodes and labels on products that will give you more facts about them. Eventually Google hopes to increase the system’s capabilities so that it can identify plants and flowers, for those who are just curious. Also, they hope the glasses will be used as aids to identifying poisonous or extremely rare pants. Of course some gamers are particularly excited for the glasses possibilities for virtual entertainment. Google Glasses originally only worked on the Android network, but now has been built for iPhone as well.

Recently, Google Glasses revealed their first video captured by the product. The video was taken by someone who is wearing them while also bouncing on a trampoline. It is only 15-seconds long but is shows Google Glasses’ ability to stay on the person’s head while they bounce, jump, and do flips. Pretty impressive! You may be surprised, however, to learn that there are no special features located on the sides if the video, like latitude or longitude settings, weather forecasts, or trampoline advertisements.

Although this video may not be what you expect, it is still pretty impressive and just an introduction of what is to come. Of course those of us who wear glasses may find it hard to wear both our own as well as the Google pair. There are many different types of contact lenses offered on the market today and they can be tailored to suit your specific needs: long-term or short-term, and disposable or not. Some lenses even offer specialized UV and UVB protection.

If you have tried contact lenses in the past and have not been happy with them, however, you may want to check out the extra moist lenses offered by Acuvue. These contacts are 1-day disposable and do not require a new prescription. They are extremely moist and comfortable nd work well with sunglasses, reading glasses, or Google Glasses. Not only are they comfortable, but they offer both UV and UVB protection.

If you wear your Google Glasses for extended periods of time without other eye protection, serious long-term damage can occur. Lenses like these help minimize the danger. Acuvue lenses are so moist and comfy you won’t notice them on. And although you may not immediately notice the sun protection you are receiving, your eyes will thank you later.
