Subject: Google Glass

Written By: Slim95 on 05/05/13 at 1:08 am

What do you guys think of Google Glass? Do you think it will be successful? Will you buy it? Do you think it will be a big part of life in technology in the next few years and the future?

It will first be adopted by nerds.  Kinda like those two kids who wore jock straps on their heads in "Sixteen Candles".

Then you'll see self-important types wearing them like the dudes who wear those Captain Spock Bluetooth earpieces, walk around in circles, and talk to themselves at the airport.  ::)  You know, hollering out commands to their Google glasses whilst refining their next PowerPoint presentation.  8-P

If only Google could come up with "Google Pants", people could then completely isolate themselves from the outside world and via sight, hearing, and touch.  ;D

I think it might work, but wearing them might make you look stupid in the long run!

Google Glass will be successful ... just like the Nintendo Virtual Boy was

The only issue I see with it is the privacy. You never know if someone is recording you or not. I don't see the point of the camera being there. Also voice control is not very reliable and you'll look like a fool at the same time. Then the danger of using it while driving as well. Other than that it looks like a cool device.

Why do companies keep trying to invent dumb ways to do cool things (or is that the other way around)?

Remember the old days of sitting down at a computer and surfing the internet?

I know right? I agree Why would someone want to invent Google Glass(es) & Why would anyone want to surf the internet while wearing silly glasses?  ::)

You'd be surprised.  It's the same thing as those people who want an Apple iPhone just because it's an iPhone.  It's technology that's talked about and made to look so cool, everyone wants one, even if they don't need one

That's so... 1993.
