Google Gets Transparent With Glass, Its Augmented Reality Project | Epicenter | Wired.com.

Larry Page and Sergey Brin have long had the dream of a hands-free, mobile Google, where search was a seamless process as you moved around the world. As the years progressed the vision did, too, expanding beyond search to persistent connections with the people in your lives.

In other words, Google’s view of the world now has the social side fully baked into it.

Today, Google is revealing that it is taking concrete steps towards that vision with ProjectGlass, an augmented reality system that will give users the full range of activities performed with a smart phone — without the smart phone.

  1. The anime "Eden of the East" anticipated something like that.
