Google's Glass Project

के हो प्रोजेक्ट ग्लास ?
प्रोजेक्ट ग्लास भनेको गुगल द्वारा पहल गरीएको बिकशित प्रोजेक्ट हो। गुगल चस्मा लगाए पछी त्यो चस्मा ले कम्प्युटर को काम गर्छ। यसको मतलब ग्लासलाई मौलिक कमाण्ड दिएर जे काम गरायो  त्यही गर्छ। उदारणको लागि "ग्लास फोटो खिच्" भन्यो भने उसले तस्बिर लिन्छ। अथवा "ग्लास नेपाल गूगल गर" भन्यो भने पनि उसले तुरुन्तै भने बमोजिम गूगल गरेर ग्लास मा देखाईदिन्छ। यो सबै दृश्यहरु आँखा अगाडी नै चस्मा मा देखाईदिन्छ। त्यति मात्र होइन कि बाटोमा हिड्दा-हिड्दै फोटो खिचेर फेसबूकमा पोस्ट गर्दे भन्ने हो भने पनि गर्दी हाल्छ।  

हालमा यो केबल परिक्षणमा मात्र छ, तर केहि बर्ष भित्र यो सर्बसाधारण माझ आउन सक्ने जानकारी गूगल ले दिएको छ। आज (फुब्रवरी २०, २०१३) गूगलले यु-ट्युबमा भिडियो राखेर यसको खुलाशा गराएको हो। 

यसले कसरी काम गर्छ भन्ने तल को भिडियो हेर्नु भयो भने स्पस्ट हुन्छ:

Fresh details about Google's eagerly-anticipated smart glasses have been released by the company. The YouTube video above, originally uploaded by the company shows Google Glass in action - including the interface which appears in the wearer's line of sight.

The search giant has also opened up the trial of the product to "creative individuals" and developers. Google co-founder Sergey Brin was recently spotted on New York's subway testing the device.

The product was first unveiled as part of a demonstration at a Google launch event last year where developers were offered early access to the device for $1,500.

The company is now inviting people in the US to use the hashtag #ifihadaglass to suggest ways they would make use of the headset. "We're looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass," Google said.

"We're still in the early stages and, while we can't promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting."

The demo video showed how Glass can be used to take pictures and record video, as well as share content directly via email or social networks.

Voice commands such as "OK, Glass, take a picture" were used to control the device. Other features appeared to include Skype-like video chats, and other related information such as weather reports and map directions.

All of this information appeared in a small, translucent square in the top right of the wearer's field of vision. The display is considerably less intrusive than previously published concept videos. Wearable technology is seen as a major growth area for hardware makers in 2013 and beyond.
