Google begins public testing for AR glasses

In a blog post, Juston Payne of Google explains that experimenting in the ‘real world’ after months in the laboratory becomes important to understand the potential of the product. “This allows us to better understand how these devices can help people in their everyday life. And as we develop features like AR navigation, it helps us to evaluate the effect of factors such as weather and busy intersections. Which could be difficult and sometimes impossible to recreate entirely in the laboratory “.

The glasses of the Project Iris, which seem to be able to arrive on the market from 2024, will be tested in “small numbers” in some areas of cities in the United States. Testers will have stringent limitations on where they can use prototypes and the type of business they will have to manage.

Google explains that it will also test simultaneous translation and transcription, but that the prototypes do not currently have photography or video capabilities. If future prototypes were to use themGoogle ensures that it will automatically remove sensitive content (faces, plates, etc.) and then keep them for 30 days for further analysis.

The ability to take photographs, however, was not shown at Google I / O, where the glasses debuted as a final surprise. Maybe for ensure that no one reconnected these new prototypes to Google Glasswhich arrived too soon and did not sell as much as hoped.
