Google's Project Glass Made Real in a DIY Augmented Reality Project Last week, Google showed off the best vision for the future of augmented reality that we've seen with its Project Glass. As incredible as the video was, it was still just a concept video, so I mostly wrote it off as pipe-dream technology that’s still years away from feasibility. Maybe not. Will Powell, an AR developer from Oxford, built his own DIY version of Project Glass.

It is also one of only four authorities nationally to be included in the accompanying private tutoring scheme funded by HSBC. The aim of the pilots is to test out proposals included in the Government Green Paper Care Matters: Transforming the Lives of Children and Young People in Care. Google Wins The Internet With A Live Skydiving Demo Of Google Glass (Now With Video!) Well, that was unexpected. Google’s Sergey Brin just stepped on stage at Moscone West to deliver a demo of Google Glass, and it involves a Google+ hangout conducted via their connected eyewear. Oh, and some guys just jumped out of a zeppelin. “Being able to share what you’re seeing is amazing,” Brin said. Four skydivers all equipped with Google Glass hardware just plummeted toward the ground in San Francisco, and video quality in the hangout as about as good as one would expect considering the circumstances. In fact, the hardware may have changed a bit since early demos, as the video seems considerably clearer than the infamous trampoline video that made the rounds a few weeks back.
word watch Biegert & Funk presents the world's first wristwatch in words at Baselworld For the first time, Biegert & Funk is exhibiting a completely new kind of wristwatch, the QLOCKTWO W, at Baselworld. QLOCKTWO W does not show the time with hands or digits. Time is indicated on this purist watch as readable text, turning it into a statement: "It is half past nine". iRobot Unveils Morphing Blob Robot (w/ Video) (PhysOrg.com) -- iRobot's latest robot is unique on many levels. The doughy blob moves by inflating and deflating - a new technique its developers call "jamming." As the researchers explain in the video below, the jamming mechanism enables the robot to transition from a liquid-like to a solid-like state. Earlier this week, researchers from iRobot and the University of Chicago presented the new "blob bot" at the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems. As a new kind of chemical robot (or chembot), the blob bot has stretchy silicone skin, which is composed of multiple cellular compartments that each contain a "jammable slurry." When some of these cells are unjammed, and an actuator in the center of the robot is inflated, the robot inflates in the areas of the unjammed cells.

Augmented reality glasses debut on Google co-founder's face Google's Project Glass made its public debut on the face of Google co-founder Sergey Brin on Thursday night, prompting new excitement about the project, fresh predictions of future marvels -- or horrors -- and inspiration, most likely, for new parodies of the funky, futuristic headset. In photos, Brin appears comfortable in the augmented-reality specs as he stands alongside tech guru Robert Scoble at a charity event in San Francisco. Interestingly, the event at which the futuristic eyewear made its first appearance was Dining in the Dark for the Foundation Fighting Blindness. Scoble wrote about seeing Brin and the glasses on social media, saying he saw "bluish light" that flashed off of Brin's right eyeball. But Brin wasn't handing the glasses around for people to inspect.
