Google Unveils NY Times & Gmail Apps For Project Glass
The company presented a number of applications at SXSW to show the variety of possibilities for the new tech.
Google developer Timothy Jordan demonstrated some of the apps the company is working on for Project Glass at SXSW this year. The apps, which show the variety of possibilities for the new technology, work using the “timeline cards” interface that projects short bursts of information in the wearer's peripheral vision.
A New York Times app would display breaking news headlines on the lenses and could also read the stories aloud with a simple tap on the glasses. The user would be able to view a related image, byline, and the time since the article was posted.
