Google Glass to feature auto-photo mode
While this does seem like one of the more obvious features to be incorporated into the currently under development Google Glass augmented reality headset, it’s nice to see Google is on the right track.
The Google Glass AR headset will be able to take photos automatically, and to demonstrate the usefulness of the feature, Brin took some photos while driving in Montana wearing a prototype of the glasses. The glasses took photos every ten seconds, and automatically forwarded them to his Google+ account via instant upload. We presume a faster burst mode will also be possible.
Images taken by the glasses were only 512x384 pixels in resolution, once again, presumably to save space with the premise of hundreds of photos being uploaded in a few minutes. Emphasizing the ease of use of hands-free augmented reality glasses, and their multiple applications, Brin wrote:
“We started Project Glass believing that, by bringing technology closer, we can get it more out of the way. Whether you’re exploring a new city, hiking in the woods, or playing with your kids — Glass allows you to enjoy and share life’s moments without being tied down by technology.”
While the search giant intends to launch Google Glass in a limited release by the end of 2012, we can only expect the first consumer-ready editions by 2014 – the initial 2012 models will cost upwards of $1,500.
