Google is apparently planning on making a new pair of smart glasses


It has been several years since Google discontinued its Google Glass project. While it was a great idea on paper, the problem is that maybe it might have been a bit too ahead of its time, where perhaps the general public wasn’t quite ready for the tech just yet. Fast forward to today, augmented reality is becoming more mainstream.

We’re seeing games like Pokemon GO use the tech to great effect, so it doesn’t come as a complete surprise to learn that Google could be apparently looking to revive its AR efforts. This comes from a report from the New York Times where they claim that Google is “nurturing a new project” that could ultimately result in the company eventually launching a pair of smart glasses.

This also comes on Google’s acquisition of North back in 2020, who for those unfamiliar had also developed smart glasses of their own. The timing is actually rather interesting because word on the street has it that Apple is apparently looking to launch their own pair of smart glasses along with mixed reality headsets, so it’s not surprising that Google won’t be sitting back and doing nothing about it.

That being said, while AR is becoming more commonplace, the jury is still out on whether smart glasses have what it takes to become mainstream, but what do you think? Do you think society is ready for smart glasses?
