Google+ trends: Google's Project Glass, Facebook's Graph cause buzz

Google's "Project Glass" aims to develop an augmented reality, head-up display that can react via voice commands. The software giant has begun sending out invitations to its first Project Glass hackathons, taking place on January 28-29 in San Francisco and February 1-2 in New York. The hackathons aim to create, in Google's own words, "the first opportunity for a group of developers to get together and develop for Glass."  The deadline to register for these events is January 18 and Google expects space to be limited. To keep up to date with the developments on the project, follow Project Glass on Google+.   

Also in tech news is Facebook's new function Graph. Facebook Graph acts as a search function for content posted within the site. It will initially allow users to search for content across four categories -- people, photos, places and interests -- and will roll out slowly in beta format with a view to developing the function over the following years. Zuckerberg described Graph search as "a completely new way for people to get information on Facebook" at a press conference on Tuesday.
