  • We’re curious about the smart glasses, but you might not want to hold your breath for Google Glass 2.

Google just showed off a rather nifty AI feature dubbed Project Astra at its I/O developer conference. This feature combines your camera viewfinder with a responsive chatbot. However, the company’s demo also showed this AI feature running on a pair of smart glasses, and that certainly raised our eyebrows.

The demo showed a woman putting on a pair of smart glasses running Project Astra. The chatbot quickly responded to queries about what the user saw, providing assistance with a technical diagram and more.
