Google Glass Looks Increasingly Amazing

Posted on Feb 20, 2013
Google

Google is still alpha testing its concept in wearable computing, and although the view from the outside remains decidedly nerdy, the potential gets more exciting all the time.

A new ad released by Google to drive interest in “Glass” shows what the product, a set of computerized, connected glasses, looks like from the user’s perspective, and what it might be capable of.

Of course all the potential in the world won’t amount to a hill of beans if we can’t adjust culturally. The Segway is a fabulous way to move around, but no one wants to pay thousands of dollars to be laughed at. Likewise, you have to get over the fear of looking like you have a mental disorder before you’ll talk on a Bluetooth headset. What will people make of the Glass-wearing early adopters who seem to be lost in conversation with themselves while smiling dumbly into space?
