Así es el Proyecto Glass, las gafas de realidad aumentada de Google

Nuevo vídeo de Google demostrando las posibilidades de sus gafas de Realidad Aumentada, según las últimas informaciones pueden salir al mercado en breve por 1500 €. pero aún no están claros los requerimientos para los desarrolladores en Europa, parece que a google le está costando compartir la información sobre este proyecto, algo extraño, por otro lado, y que está retrasando la aparición de aplicaciones dirigidas a este espectacular soporte, esperemos que en breve podamos disponer de alguna beta para empezar a desarrollar algunas pruebas de Realidad Aumentada para estas Gafas salidas de Star Trek.

Ya puedes solicitar ser Beta Tester… si resides en Estados Unidos
