Google has given the world a glimpse into the possible future of communication (and perhaps personal computing) with its “Glass” project.

The wearable computer, being developed in the company’s futuristic tech lab, displays information in transparent widgets and takes voice commands much like a smartphone. The display uses a small projector to create a layer over reality, providing the user with an augmented reality view.

Wearable computers are not a new idea, but technology has finally allowed for them to become something we can wear without wires and control exclusively with our voices.

In an incredible infographic, artist Martin Missfeldt shows the inner workings of Glass, breaking down the details of how Google created the device’s augmented reality.
