The guys at Google X Lab have done it again. The same masterminds behind the "driver-less car," have unveiled their newest futuristic idea: Project Glass! Project Glass takes all the functionality of a smart phone and places it into a wearable device that resembles eyeglasses. The concept features see-through lenses that can display everything from text messages to maps and reminders. They may even be capable of showing video chats, providing directions, taking photos, and recording notes!
If that’s not awesome enough, these glasses will do all this through simple voice commands, according to a concept video produced by the company and released on YouTube. The glasses are not yet for sale, but Google will be testing them in public. So if you happen to be walking around and notice someone with a pair of futuristic looking glasses that remind you of Wall-E, don’t worry! It’s probably just a Google employee.
Rolling Stone magazine is calling her a sci-fi Beyonce, but in view of the bold direction she has taken with her music, production and image, she surpasses comparison with any other artist. Her own name, Janelle Monae, is the only suitable title, and she is wearing it well. While her fashion taste resembles the brassy 1950’s, her music grooves with a futuristic sound. Her upcoming album Metropolis: The Chase Suite is an appealing fusion of hip-hop, jazz and funk. No doubt Outkast’s own Big Boi was there every step of the production process.
