Google announces potential AR glass prototype at I/O 2024 conference

Product updates

  • Google announced a potential AR glass prototype at its I/O 2024 conference, codenamed "Project Astra." The prototype glasses were subtly used during the presentation, although the possibility of them overlaying text/images over a user's eye remains unclear.

  • The glasses allow users to ask questions about their environment and receive answers through an LLM. They also offer a thick frame and a curved nose bridge, differentiating them from the previously launched Google Glass.

  • Analyst QuickTake: Google has faced numerous hurdles in developing XR hardware, including laying off hundreds of individuals working on its AR hardware team ( January 2024 ), halting work on "Project Iris," intended to be an AR headset ( July 2023 ), and discontinuing enterprise sales of the Google Glass ( March 2023 ).
