Somewhere In The Near Future...

This week, Google gave a glimpse of "Project Glass" in a video and blog post. Still in an early prototype stage, the glasses looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. The glasses also showcase a whole suite of Google applications (Google Maps, Google Places, Google Plus, etc.). While I feel it might still take another few years before this actually takes off, at the rate Google is going, it doesn't seem that impossible and probably not too far away.

Another video that I find interesting is how digital screens will be used in the near future. This concept is brought to you by TAT (The Astonishing Tribe), a company that consists of engineers, visual artists and interaction designers who eat, sleep, and breathe User Interfaces. The company was acquired by RIM in December 2010, the very same people who brought you the Blackberry and Playbook.
