Vergence Labs, founded by a Stanford Engineer and a UCLA and NUS MBA, has developed a smart eyeglasses prototype that can display data from the Web in a person’s field of view. Not great with names? The glasses are equipped with a computer and a camera capable of performing facial recognition. When interacting with someone in the wearer’s social network, the glasses can display that person’s Facebook profile information, relationship status, and even allow them to Google the person’s name! The glasses can also display computer graphics for an augmented view of reality and potentially enable wearers to play social games in a 3D environment. Still in the early stages of development, this technology has the potential to radically impact the way people interact and communicate.
