Google’s tease over its glasses was brief, but the company’s continued advancements in AR tools through its phones, research and purpose also be prepared to wear his glasses. But there’s no clear indicator when these glasses might be available for purchase.

Google has been active in virtual reality and augmented reality for years. While no company has everyday smart glasses in regular use, Google seems to want to try again.

One of the coolest parts of its new eyewear initiative is its focus on practical utility. The ability to understand and be understood is really useful. These glasses don’t focus on floating dinosaurs or magical experiences; they try to help. Meta’s recent smart glass ambitions are also aimed at providing utility, but Google’s experience and tools seem well suited to meet the challenge.

As Google CEO Sundar Pichai noted in a blog post, the company is working hard to make these eyewear prototypes deliver language in a line-of-sight experience. Google’s work with AR will likely be incremental, but it also appears to be trying services first. In that sense, these glasses already look very different from the more magical VR headset that Dream been. In many ways, it feels like the kind of stuff I’ve always expected Google Glass to do one day.
