U.S. military may begin deploying its own Google Glass-like headset

46 sec read

One of the more interesting of the current crop of wearables is Google Glass. This wearable headset has caused a lot of controversy so far with some places banning people from wearing the headset inside out of privacy concerns. One woman in California was ticketed for wearing Google Glass while driving, but the ticket was later dismissed. Soldiers on the battlefield may soon be getting a Glass-like headset called the Q-Warrior that is designed to live stream data to soldiers on the ground. 

Call them Glassoldiers. The American military may soon be filled with soldiers sporting Google Glass-like headgear that can measure distances, display 3D building layouts, transmit video from a drone and more, all on a glass display right in front of their eyes. Battlefields are full of data soldiers can use: enemy positions, the location of fellow soldiers, maps of a city or a house, video of what they’ll encounter over a hill. But until recently, there’s been no way to live-stream that data to soldiers on the ground. That’s what Q-Warrior, high-tech headgear built by United Kingdom-based BAE Systems, provides. First reported by Wired, it gives soldiers a full-color, 3D display of what’s happening in areas outside their line of sight, which has the potential to seriously boost a soldier’s situational awareness.
