Google Glass is perfect for augmented reality, overlaying information live on the world in front of you. Until now Glass has just been a notification device, but OpenGlass can change that.
The OpenGlass project uses servers to bypass the problem of Glass not having enough power to process live AR. This means, when it's up and running, one person could annotate the Glass wearer's view of the world, live.
Want to get a guided tour of a city with arrows showing points of interest, or to play virtual games against another Glass wearer? It's all possible.
The video shows that OpenGlass is still in the early stages of development and looks a little shaky right now. But it's great to see the potential this has.
OpenGlass would probably work better on something that covers your entire field of view, rather than just the bottom corner. This would be ideal for the recently announced META.01 AR glasses.
