Google Glass gets transforming nose piece patent

Those of you waiting for the ultimate head-mounted computer in Google's Project Glass will be glad to know that it may be coming with a nose piece that changes based on your desires - and nose size. What we're seeing today is a patent at the USPTO that's been granted to Google which shows a technology that allows for a malleable nose bridge controlled by the touchpad that sits on the side of the Glass unit (by your temple). Just incase you've got an extra-stuffy nose, you'll be set!

This week the folks at Time magazine have released their yearly "Best Inventions of the Year" list and on it is none other than our good pal Google Glass.

Users are able to wear the glasses and see a computer interface near their eye as well as take photos with a nod - the final iteration of this device may well be released inside 2013; we'll just have to wait and see!

Sony HMZ-T2 Personal 3D viewer changes your perspective

The next generation in 3D visuals may well have just been revealed by Sony in a device called the HMZ-T2 Personal 3D viewer.

This device is ready to bring on a wearable 3D display for anyone willing to put the massive Geordi LaForge mask.

Google Glass Explorers hangouts create chaos

This week the folks in charge of social media surrounding the Google Project Glass hardware on order right this second have created a set of Hangouts for the betterment of the project - but it didn't turn out all that great this afternoon. The first set of Google Glass Explorers hangouts ended in mass confusion and hopeful users ending up finding out little, if anything, about Google Glass that they didn't already know. Google Glass product manager Steve Lee and community manager Sarah Price hoped to hear feedback and ideas throughout the day.

Apple files patent application for high-resolution display in video glasses

Apple files patent application for high-resolution display in video glasses

Apple has applied for yet another patent with the US Patent Office, but instead of smartphone-related features, this patent covers high-resolution display in video glasses. The timing may seem suspect, what with Google's current Google Glass push going strong, but Apple has actually been filing patents related to video glasses since 2006. Indeed, this is nothing new for Apple, and with this latest patent application, it seems that the company is getting closer to achieving what it ultimately wants: bringing a retina-like display to the smaller screen you'd find in video glasses.

Wearable technology developer exclaims massive adoption potential

Wearable technology developer exclaims massive adoption potential

This week we had a brief chat with Will Powell, a developer responsible for some rather fantastic advances in the world of what Google has suddenly made a very visible category of devices: wearable technology. With Google's Project Glass nearer and nearer reality with each passing day, we asked Powell how his own projects were making advances at the same time, and how he saw advances in mobile gadgets as moving forward - and possibly away from smartphones and tablets entirely.

Google Glass inspired project brings real-time translation

Google Glass inspired project brings real-time translation

This week the inventor known as Will Powell has created a project with heads-up display technology in mind - near real time translation, right up to the mind's eye. If there's one thing Google's Project Glass has done for the world - even though it's not a product many of us can own quite yet - it's to inspire developers and technicians around the world. What Powell has done here is to take several components and combine them to create a pair of glasses that shows what a person has said in text right after they've said it - translated into any language you like.

This week we're getting our first scientific look at Google's Project Glass smart glasses ability to use its frame as a trackpad.

Google Project Glass demo units ramped up to 722

Google Project Glass demo units ramped up to 722

This week it's been tipped by no less than the FCC that Google's Project Glass will soon be expanding in a rather large way. What before looked to be the testing ground for Project Glass in the listing for a "next-generation personal communication device." While it's possible that this is not the Project Glass device exactly, it does excite us too much to simply not report that the Project Glass testing unit might soon be on the heads of more than just a few top Google representatives.

Regal picks Sony Smart Glasses

Regal picks Sony Smart Glasses

This week the folks at Regal have chosen Sony's Entertainment Access Glasses to help them move forward with entertaining hearing and sight-impaired patrons in ways they've never been able before. These glasses have been in production for quite a while now - as far back as a half a year since they were first revealed in fact, but it's just now that Sony has received a contract to have them distributed to this line of theaters. The real-live use of these glasses, which work with headphones to either bring descriptive audio to a patron or closed-captions directly in front of their eyes, will come at a time when such exciting concepts as Google's Project Glass come to light.

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. Instead this fantastical vision for the very near future is shown in a demonstration video that has us flipping over the prospect of this product being released in the very near future.
