Google's Android-based digital glasses will offer a near-iPhone 4S resolution floating interface for users, sources claim, though opinion remains divided over whether the wearable computer is realistic, useful or even safe. According to a Geek source, the Google Glasses will use a pair of micro LCD displays bouncing a combined 960 x 540 resolution image off two small angled surfaces integrated into the lenses, for the impression of a large screen floating in front of your face. That will be used for gaming, navigation and more.

Google Project Glass smart glasses revealed

This week Google is showing off their next gigantic project, a pair of augmented reality glasses that connect with your whole Google experience: Project Glass. This "Project Glass" experience is part of the Google X offices for experimental projects and is certainly not an April Fool's joke, though if it'd been released several days ago we may have tagged it as such.
