Imagine driving to work, wearing your Google Glass(es) and its HUD (heads up display) is guiding you around traffic in real time. You arrive at work and see a guy wearing some sweet shoes; you scan them with your Glass and pin it for the future and all your friends to see. You work with a number of foreigners who are in town to assist with some system failures; they don't speak English -- Google Glass is translating their speech in front of your eyes. That's the future with Google Glass.



Google co-founder Sergey Brin and his fellow Googlers helped debut the company's crazy Google Glass project with an employee doing a real-time parachute jump while wearing the connected smart glasses.

    Very cool stuff with a lot of potential. I think it's the next "iPad" innovation.

    There are things I like about it, it would probably be pretty useful, but I won't get one. I swore off cellphones when I learned they cause brain damage and cancer. The idea of walking around all day with a cellphone running doesn't appeal to me.

    A very uncomfortable future full of creepers because the technology makes being a creeper so much easier, but likely the future nonetheless.

    Does any one else see the danger in driving with a screen in your glasses? I mean wouldn't this divert your attention?

    I'm pretty sure it will be made illegal to actually use them while driving eventually...same as phones and such. It may be convenient, but until we have self driving cars on an automated road system that's infallible...one must still pull over nonetheless.

    You ladies have GOT to stop jiggling them in my face.

    Just because I like women does not mean I am going to sleep with you. I need to get to know you first and develop a relationship. Can't you women control yourselves?

    Well.. it is PART of the future... In technology, nothing is king for long, and nothign lasts forever.

    Eyepiece computing displays are not new - - but Googles use if one is.

    We shall see where it goes.

    Hey, with the right software, We also might be close to FINALLY having those X-RAY Glasses that can see through clothing! Hell yea!

    There was a good TV drama by Charlie Brooker that explored this kind of technology but more the "record everything" aspect of it, it's worth a watch.

    Hopefully you can watch it from outside of the UK and it does have an ad at the beginning.

    Okay, I just submitted my answer, it was this whole sci-fi sort of scenario where I use facial recognition to remember people I can't really remember and look ultra cool to everyone by being so super thoughtful and remembering their family and junk, ANYHOW!!! I hit enter, and it just disappeared! like a sucky magic trick...
    So I'm gonna post it in an edit coz it's some good stuffs... :P


    I'm hoping that I can get one someday, I've been working on a design for the glasses myself anyway so I'm curious to see if my ideas come anywhere close to theirs. These things are a great idea, with good facial recognition software, you won't ever have to wonder where you know this person or that person from ever again, If you keep good records it will be in there.

    You bump into someone you met at a party at a friend's house like five years ago, and here's what you get.

    SO... {David Thompson (prefers to be called "Davey")} [displayed under his face or over his head.] Davey how've you been?"
    {Met him at Jan's new years party in 2010}
    And any other personal infromation you felt useful and worth saving from the conversation you had. could be called up quickly {database query, family?}
    {Fiancee Diane} "Did you and diane ever get married?"

    Suddenly I'm the awesome guy that knows and likes everyone he's ever met... :P

    I want one of them for me and each of my kids. Replace cellphones for texting in a second!!!
