Google shows off ‘Project Glass’ computerized glasses project
Nick Bilton has a good overview at the NYT. And Google has posted this video of what a theoretical experience with “Project Glass” might be like. Basically, like using your phone on your face instead of taking your phone out.
I don’t doubt that there’s some potential here. And again, I’m trying really hard to be hopeful about this sort of stuff. But so far, I’m not seeing anything that would make the nuisance of wearing special glasses all day worth it.
Between the added bulk, looking ridiculous, and the inevitable cost, it’s on the road to becoming the Segway of optics.
