Google Glasses: The future of augmented reality?

Google recently revealed their latest project called Google Glasses which shows the wearer of the prototype glasses receiving messages and notifications, taking photos of their surroundings and even video chatting with another person while on the go.  Although this device is still in testing and at least two years from being reality, people are excited for what this product may one day accomplish. From the video it looks like Google is trying to create a product that seamlessly combines the basic functions of a smartphone (messaging, taking photos, getting directions, receiving email/notifications) but instead displaying the data on the phone itself, the information would be displayed on a wearable set of glasses. This device aims to help reduce the number of people who are constantly glued to their phone screen but that is only if Google is able to accomplish the lofty goal they set for themselves in the reveal video.
