A decade after Google Glass was first released, the company may have discovered a purpose for augmented reality glasses that doesn’t make people giggle.

Today during the Google I/O keynote (May 11), CEO Sundar Pichai discussed Google’s vision for augmented reality (AR). Using augmented reality in the real world without the technology getting in the way would bring out the wonder of the technology, according to Google CEO Sundar Pichai. What excites us the most about AR is the possibility to spend time in the real world and our real lives concentrating on the things that really matter. “


So, Google demonstrated the capacity of its AR glasses to display real-time translation in the wearer’s field of view through a movie. Google product manager Max Spear likened the effect to “subtitles for the globe” in a blog post.

An English-speaking mother may watch her daughter’s remarks translated into her native tongue in Google’s demo movie. There is no obtrusive translation that obscures the speaker.

On Google Translate, the company has been working for years on real-time translation services that can be used in many languages.


For persons with hearing difficulties who can’t hear a conversation or presentation, the glasses would be useful since they would enable them to view a real-time transcript of what is being said even if they cannot hear it.

Despite their large frames, the AR glasses seem to be normal eyeglasses. He referred to them as early prototypes and provided no indication as to whether they’ll become a commercial product.

In any case, it could be irrelevant to the demonstration. Google was demonstrating how augmented reality (AR) may be more than just a fun trick for the office; it can enable genuine change in the lives of others. This type of feature set may alter your mind if you’re dubious about AR headsets and glasses.
