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.

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.
