Google offers a glimpse of 'Project Glass.'

Google offered the world a glimpse at its latest project - futuristic Internet-connected glasses.

While wearing a pair of these glasses, users would be able to see directions literally before their eyes. They would also be able to talk to friends over video chat and take pictures - all while walking and carrying on with their days.

The glasses can basically do everything that a smartphone or tablet computer can do.

But the technology doesn't actually exist. Google said it shared the "Project Glass" video and blog post as a way to start a discussion and solicit ideas.
