Would You Wear The Google Glasses?
Would you like to go down the street and see information about someone you don't know? Would you want to see the price tag of shopping items by just looking at them? How about whatever you look at you can find out information about it? Yes, I am talking about Google glasses, the new piece of tech Google is working on.
Here is a glimpse of what it might be like:
So? What do you think? These "glasses" might bring about a huge technological shift in how we interact with technology, that's all. Here is how I think it will happen:
The Google Glasses are released to the public. Most people want to buy them, about 3/4 of the ones who what to buy them actually do. Within a year the 1/4 that waited because they didn't need them as badly, buy them. People will use these augmented reality glasses to "assist" themselves in their daily routine.
The next question is...do we need them? Google glasses wont give us something we haven't had before, but they will make life easier than before. Instead of looking down at your phone you just have to look where you want to go and speak. These glasses are subtle, compared to competitors versions of augmented reality glasses. Supplementing what you see is better than changing what you see; that is a little creepy.
But, what if there was an alternative to the augmented reality glasses? What if you didn't need to have glasses to help you navigate your way around the tech world?
