ADmented Reality - Google Glasses Remixed with Google Ads

Google's Project Glass is its attempt to make wearable computing mainstream 2014, and it's effectively a smart pair of glasses with an integrated heads-up display and a battery hidden inside the frame.

If you are one of the 16.5m people who have seen the latest Google glasses Youtube clip, you will probably appreciate this slightly more realistic version of Google's augmented reality glasses - now featuring contextual Google Ads, published by Jonathan McIntosh at rebelliouspixels!

All of the AdWords used are actual Google ad returns found via Google searches based on the dialogue, situation or setting in the original video.

NAM/KAM applications
Street accidents permitting, Google Glasses look like a potential boon to NAMs, especially in negotiation. Think of the advantages of instant lookup of sales stats, buyer’s name, bonus-progression, kamword definitions, simultaneous cost & value calculations, but especially continuous interpretation of body language signals and regular prompts to show a vestige of interest in the buyer….all whilst maintaining almost 100% apparent eye-contact…

Meanwhile, the only real decision is whether to shell out $1400 now for a developer’s working prototype, or await the mainstream launch in 2014, when the politicians will probably be telling us about the emerging green shoots of economic recovery…

Have an day-dreamy weekend, from the NamNews Team!
