Google Plans to Make You a Cyborg By Christmas

Posted By on Thu, Apr 5, 2012 at 11:15 AM

Come Christmas, the masses won't be clamoring for the latest Apple iPod/Pad/Phone—they'll be lusting after Terminator-esque glasses courtesy of Google's Project Glass.

As reported by The New York Times, the California search giant has already begun testing production models of futuristic-looking glasses that lay information from the Internet over the user's field of vision.

The article calls the new project the company's "first venture into wearable computing," a sure-to-be-buzzword for the utopian future promised by Aldous Huxley.

You'll remember, though, that in Brave New World, all that glittered was not gold. This is also made evident in the Project Glass promo video released by Google, which shows the test subject haphazardly engaging in every pleasurable experience he encounters.

Catch a glimpse of the future below:
