Google Project Glass final design yet to be determined

Google logoGoogle’s Project Glass is still under development with many aspects of the product yet to be nailed down, according to an interview with Google’s Barbak Parviz by IEEE Spectrum. Although Google has previously outlined its broad plans for the device as platform for the next generation of wearable computing, Parvix also offered some additional insights into Google plans for the device. Google, he says, is working on developing Project Glass so that it allows users to quickly connect with others through images and video, while also enabling rapid access to information.

When asked about how Project Glass has changed since it was first announced, Pavik said “We constantly try out new ideas of how this platform can be used. There’s a lot of experimentation going on at all times in Google.” When pressed about specific features Pavik added that it is very much “still in flux.” Interestingly, he also addded that augmented reality is not something that Google is exploring for at least the first iteration of the device.

However, Pavik said that does expect that sometime during the course of this year developers who have already plumped down $1500 for the developer edition of Google Glass during Google IO 2012 will receive a device with a feature set close to the shipping product. Google hopes to have the final version of the product in consumers’ hands sometime in 2014. He also anticipates that developers will also find ways to use Project Glass in ways that Google hasn’t conceived of yet either, which could shape the development of the device further.
