Babak Parviz, program director for Google's Project Glass, gave a keynote on the high-profile computer glasses. "This was the first system we designed that people could wear all day," he said.
Parviz gave a history of computing and communications that seemed overly watered down for his sophisticated but polite audience of processor architects. Nevertheless several gathered around him for questions after his talk (below).
Few technical details came out of the discussions. However he noted there's no plan to try to pack a cellular modem into the thin spectacles and even a GPS may not be in a final product.
As for privacy, "it will take time for people to figure out the social privacy rules for taking picture and video of people in public, just as it did with the advent of the camera," he said.
