The Next Technology Jump Is Coming

By Harsh Vardhan (Facebook) (Twitter)

We have all been in the trend where disruption is inevitable. Since the launch of computers it has always been replaced with something smaller always. Be it where it started from the rooms, then it moved on to our desks, slowly it sat on our lap and then finally occupied our palms. We have seen this thing from the past. So where is the next future focusing to? It seems that Google Glasses and Microsoft have already started working to change recent trend straight to our faces.

Lately we have heard about the Google Glasses which is a downloadable image recognition application created by Google Inc. which can be currently found on the Mobile Apps page of Google Mobile. It is used for searches based on pictures taken by handheld devices. For example, taking a picture of a famous landmark would search for information about it, or taking a picture of a product's bar code will search for information on the product. Developers who wants to program their software on it can already buy it.

Recently it has been reported that another technology giant Microsoft is also working on the project something similar like Google Glasses and it has filed some patents on the project and Unwired View dug them up.

Although the idea seems to be same for both company to work on there's a big difference. On one side Google Glass isn't going to use "augmented reality" – where data and illustrations overlay the actual world around you but on the other side Microsoft's glasses seem to utilize augmented reality. In a patent illustration we've embedded below, you can see that the glasses put data on top of a live action concert and a ballgame.

The patent illustration from Microsoft is below:

And here's a image of Google Glasses below:

We can see as the two companies have shown a tremendous increases in their project do you agree the next technology leap will be straight on our faces? Do let us know in our comment section.
