Google’s brief smart glasses teaser flew under the radar, but it could mean something big

Sensible glasses are all the fad in 2024. Amazon has its Echo Frames, Meta has its Ray-Ban good glasses, and evidently new manufacturers are unveiling their good spectacles with every new month of the yr. May Google be subsequent?

Google sneakily teased a pair of nondescript good glasses at its I/O occasion in Mountain View, California. Throughout an illustration of its digicam AI assistant, Gemini Stay, a video confirmed somebody asking Gemini Stay questions as they pointed their cellphone digicam round, like what neighborhood they had been in and what objects close by made sounds. 

Then, the speaker requested Gemini Stay the place she final noticed her glasses. The speaker then picked up the glasses from a desk, put them on, and started to immediate the glasses with comparable questions. The good glasses can apparently do all the things Gemini Stay on a cellphone can do.

Gemini Stay makes use of video understanding capabilities developed by Google DeepMind’s Venture Astra. Venture Astra ought to play a giant position in these undisclosed good glasses, however we cannot know for certain till Google particulars the machine. 

Sensible glasses are an AI-assisted wearable that may seize images and movies, play music and podcasts, and even reply your most urgent questions, all by way of voice prompts.

My colleague Kerry Wan wrote a glowing overview of Meta’s Ray-Ban good glasses, admitting that he has swapped out his prescription lenses for the AI wearable, and ZDNET’s Prakhar Khanna stated that the glasses are his favourite tech product of the yr in a latest article.

We do not know rather more about Google’s good glasses than what’s been pulled from this teaser, however they’re one thing we’ll positively be protecting a watch out for.
