Google Glass - The Microsoft Version

What would the Google Glass project look like if Microsoft got its hands on it? A new video shows exactly what it would be like.

The Google Glass project is an attempt to bring Augmented Reality (AR) to the masses via a pair of active glasses that you use to view a "heads up" display of useful information. The project has provoked a lot of humorous responses on YouTube and elsewhere. We have already had one example, Google Glass - How it Could Be, on I Programmer that outlines what Google could really be planning to do with AR.

Some of the others concentrate on the physical comedy of wearing a "heads up" AR display, but the one we liked most really seems to know its operating systems.

The characterization of what a Windows AR system would really be like is so accurate that I bet you can't avoid trying to close some of the alerts...

The banana joke is just too good to miss - make sure you read the message:



If you didn't react to the sound track then you have never used a Windows machine.
