Google's Project Glass: Envision the Virtual Reality
International Business Times - Back in the year of 2009, Pranav Mistry, then 29 years old and a PHD student of Fluid Interfaces at MIT's Media Lab, was talking about Sixth Sense technology. Not only did he talk about the sixth sense technology, but also designed and tested different devices integrating the digital into the physical for 8 years. "We are looking at an era where computing will merge with the physical world," said Pranav Mistry at TED India 2009 convention. And the echo of his statement now reverberates in the form of Google's latest project, Project Glass, made public on April 4th of this year. To read more, please visit http://bit.ly/IMKLz1.
