Google Glass and other augmented reality projects are about to break onto the scene. But what does an augmented reality look like and how can it enhance our lives? Anthony has a sneak peak into the future.

Read more about the Argus II bionic eye:

"Bionic Eye Becomes a Reality"

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001...

"Regulators have approved a bionic eye for the first time in the U.S., saying Second Sight Medical Products Inc.'s retinal prosthesis can be used to treat a certain kind of blindness. The Food and Drug Administration approved the Argus II, which sends electrical stimulation to the retina to induce vision in individuals afflicted with retinitis pigmentosa."

Working in the Wrong Office?

We are working in the Wrong Office.





Google Solar Array

Mountain View, California

Today, Google employs 20,223 people around the world, receiving a resume every 25 seconds from eager job-seekers, hiring an average of nine new employees a day.

A full-size replica of Virgin Atlantic's Spaceship One (space tourist vehicle) hangs in the reception area.




Exercise




To work off the pounds, and the stress ... . .

Google has its own state-of-the-art gym ... . . offering weight-training and a host of exercise machines, rowing machines, lockers and shower rooms, and two swim-in-place wave pools.




Other perks include free haircuts, dry cleaning and laundry, child care, car services, chiropractors and five onsite doctors available for employee check-ups; all free of charge.

Perhaps the most unusual bonus of all... employees can bring their dogs to work with them and keep the four-legged canine in their offices.




We already know that working for Google has certain advantages, but, believe me, this giant of a search engine takes the welfare of its employees seriously as shown by this decompression (stress) capsule that is impermeable to sound and light....




Stress capsule

Moving around the complex:




A slide allows quick access from different floors...

There are also poles available....they are similar to the ones used in fire stations.





Food




Employees can eat all they want for free from a vast choice of food and drink, whipped up by in-house chefs.




Typical Google Lunch




Cookie set-up




Work Station:




Each employee has at least two large screens.

There are 4-6 'Zooglers' per office.




Innovation:




Large boards are available just about everywhere because 'ideas don't always come when seated in the office'says one of Google's managers.




Leisure.




Pool tables, video games, etc. are available in many areas.




Communication.




On each floor, there are private cabin areas where employees attend to personal affairs.





Tech Stop




Having trouble with your computer? No problem...

Bring it to this area where drinks are available while it is being fixed...



Health:



Professional massage therapists are available.



Rest ....




View relaxing aquariums on massage chairs that you control ...

Ambiance.




There are many books in this library...even some about programming!




I would LOVE time out in this room!!
