Google I/O, the tech giant’s annual developer conference, took place this past week, and unsurprisingly it was another year in which AI figured highly on the agenda. The company demoed some neat AI-powered tricks, and one in particular got a lot of attention: Project Astra.

Project Astra is Google’s vision for a universal AI assistant that will accompany our every moment. You can have conversations with it as you go about your life, asking it everything you want to know like an inquisitive kid pestering a parent. “What’s this called?” “What does this do?” And it can help you find your lost spectacles. At least that’s the headline. It sounds like a dream come true for anyone who’s constantly misplacing their glasses. But as Google’s demo shows, the reality is a little underwhelming (see our pick of AI art generators for more on AI tools).
