Google's Project Glass demo, unveiled earlier this week, offers a behind the scenes look at the future of artificial intelligence, at least as the company sees it.
Through augmented-reality glasses, which Google co-founder Sergey Brin was spotted wearing, the tech behemoth demonstrates in the following video, from the wearer's perspective, how they could be used during a day out in NYC:
In the demo video, the small screen on the glasses flashes information right on cue, letting the wearer to set up meetings with friends, get directions in the city, find a book in a store, and even video conference with a friend.
Rapidly performing a vast array of smartphone functions, the Project Glass device itself is a small screen above the right eye on wrap-around glasses which have no actual lenses.
The future is now. Or at least pretty soon.
