Google – Project Glass

A bit of old news but pretty impressive the video depicts what a day in the life of a Google glasses-wearer would be like. Shown literally through the eyes of a of the wearer, it all starts with the glasses booting up. A series of icons flash into his field of vision, Terminator-style. He checks his calendar and the weather, chats and shares photos with friends.

Will be interesting to see how this develops!

Did Microsoft blow it with the Courier tablet?

Two years since we posted about Microsoft’s Courier Tablet the guys over at TechRepublic have an interesting article here on the Courier and why it never came to launch.

I think if the tablet had been launched Microsoft may well have gone on to conquer the tablet market place!

The video above shows even more of its planned capabilities, maybe some of this will be incorporaetd in the Windows 8 tablets.
