Just a few weeks after Google presented its Project Glass to a crowd of developers at the Google I/O conference, a similar project has rejuvenated internet buzz around this new piece of technology. Though the augmented-reality eyewear of Google’s Project Glass will not be available to the public until 2013, two students from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem have already thought about what the next design iteration might look like.
In a well-produced short movie named “Sight,” the two student filmmakers depict an average day in the life of a man using augmented-reality contact lenses. Similar to the Google technology that allows users to chat with friends, navigate through a city or take photos and post them online, these contacts imagine new possibilities in an even more integrated manner. By only setting his eyes on the different objects or persons around, the contacts provide the user with a huge amount of information from expiration dates of the items in the refrigerator to a transcription of peoples reaction to one’s various actions. Even going on a date, one of the more personal interactions two people can have, is turned into a game. Each aspect of one’s everyday routine is turned into a permanent collection of data that enables users to manage their daily tasks.
Is this project really a glimpse of what the future might be like with products like Google Glass or just a technophile’s fantasy inevitably doomed to failure because of the absence of a real market? Only time will tell. Either way it is an intriguing vision of what future technology may hold for us.
