Are You Interested in Google Glass?

Google is stepping into uncharted technology territory, with its new product, the Google Glass. Despite the Glass looking like something a Dragon Ball Z Saiyan would wear, it is actually augmented reality headgear that allows you to perform much of the actions you'd do with your smartphone--only via voice command. While you might have to get specifically fitted for the glasses, they allow you to take more control of what you're used to doing with your external mobile device.

For example, if your eyes through the glasses see a lake, you can command Glass to take a picture of exactly what your eyes see. You can also record video, share posts and whatever you're currently seeing via social media and with friends, and even use it as a GPS. Instead of looking down at your GPS to see if you're going the right way, you can follow the directions more closely.

Other features include basic messaging, being able to lookup various facts in realtime about locations you're currently at (such as the Eifel Tower's length), translating, and of course, the always important Google search. This ambitious product from Google retails at $1500 and is currently available for developers and beta testers. It will be available to the public later this year.

    Personal HUD....hmm.....

    I just hope that they'll be prescription-friendly. Last I heard (some time last year I asked) in terms of 20/20, my vision is 20/400....I'm BLIND.

    I'm interested in it for the concept. However, whether or not i'd actually ever buy it, that's another story. Plus, do they make those glasses in a model for people with prescription glasses? If not, then I can't have them, even if I could afford them. .-.

    Not really. I wear glasses already and have prescription sunglasses too as the ones that change shade whether in light or dark just make me disorientated and forking out $1200 for something I'm bound to forget about and will flip off and shatter the moment I change glasses while tired is just not worth the investment.

    I need to be alone with my thoughts every now and then, not constantly checking up on what is not in my immediate field of vision.

    Forgive my kind of humor. It`s sometimes dry, others not so obvious, and other times quite obvious. I was only kidding around. The compliment was real, nice avatar.

    More as a casual interest. Do I /need/ one? no. At least thus far I don't.

    A few years ago I didn't /need/ a cell phone either but the times are a changing. Perhaps one day we will need these just to keep up with society.

    i'm hoping the technology progresses to where i can access welding blueprints while my welding hood is down.
  • Bill Sailor ... 2013/03/12 02:15:17

    Wait a bit, they'll have the prints fed to an automated welder machine and put you out of work.

    even the biggest factories still have human welders alongside the robots to weld seams the robot can't get to, and to make sure the robot did the job properly. i'd still have a job, but it would be more quality control focused.
    and let's not forget there are some places a robot just wouldn't be practical. maintenance and repair work is a good example.
  • Bill Sailor ... 2013/03/12 02:59:12

    A few will have jobs the lucky ones will be monitoring five or six robots. I was a pipefitter, I can see how semi automated machines will take over in pipe welding. Some of those larger joints take all day to do.The contractors would just love to get half the people off the payroll. I've seen this happen in other industries also. Sadly , it WILL happen.

    Oh great, now every creep in the world can follow you and take pictures just by looking.

    I wouldn't buy those for 100 dollars. I might get mugged for wearing them or accidentally sit on them.
