Developer Beats Google To The Punch – Builds Own Augmented Reality Glasses

Think that Google’s Project Glass (augmented reality glasses) are just a fanciful project that will never see reality? Well think again because  developer Will Powell knocked up his own version, which aren’t quite as stylish as Google’s but certainly have much of the fucntionality.

I really like the project glass by Google. To that extent I have created a version using a pair of Vuzix Glasses, Microsoft HD Webcams, mic headset and dragon naturally speaking. Using these combined pieces of hardware I was able to get the head mounted display and voice recognition. I built the application using Adobe Air. The application sports full voice recognition and has the same interface that Google project glass has. The Vuzix glasses are driven by stereoscopic feeds, which are fed by the HD cameras.
