When Google revealed its Project Glass last month, the team did not actually show what could be produced from the glasses. Sure, it announced the glasses would feature augmented reality and other smartphone-like apps, but nothing along the lines of an actual photograph taken. However, a few weeks ago, a Google X executive went on “Charlie Rose” to speak a little more about the glasses. During the interview, he posted a picture on Google+ actually taken with the glasses. While the picture does not feature groundbreaking quality, it is still cool to see something taken with the glasses.
Today, we got another look at a photo taken with Project Glass. One of the project leaders, Sebastian Thrun, posted on Google+ today a picture taken with the glasses. As you can see above, the quality seems better this time around, but that could just be due to better lighting.
The folks behind Project Glass are still working on getting the prototypes up and running, and it seems to be coming along nicely. At an event last month, Google co-founder Sergey Brin was seen rocking a pair, although, he made a comment at the time that the glasses were just rebooting and no actual features were working. As we reported a few weeks ago, Google is still up in the air about giving out pairs at Google I/O this summer. However, it looks like Google is starting to get some key features working. We cannot wait to hear more.
