Google Glasses

Google is almost done making glasses with a heads-up display that can do a bunch of features like Google Maps in real time.

Apparently, they could go on sale by year’s end. Despite being really neat and useful, how many people will purchase these and how much will it be of a success? I mean, for people who already wear glasses, they better start wearing contacts if they want to wear these.

April Fools was last week, guys.

It’s not a April Fools joke (if that’s what you’re implying), actually. There was a article Mashable did months ago about this.

There was also another article somewhere but I can’t find it.

I was implying it, sort of, but it was a joke. I believe you.
This is a cool idea, but it seems incredibly impractical for how much it would cost to fund. I mean, who would buy this?

That looks pretty dang derpy. I’d get one of those if it didn’t make you look like A TOTAL DINKUS.

Imagine getting a pop up while you’re driving on a highway.

Really creepy.

Of course, I imagine video games were like that for a lot of people, just like television and radio was at one point. But as it stands, I want technology that’s this advanced to be away from my person. I don’t want to get to a point where it’s connected to me. I am a human that interacts with technology. I do not want technology to be a part of me if I can help it (sorry, Ric.)

I wonder if Ric’s armor has google.

So, it’s a terrible computer, that you get to wear in the form of ugly glasses?
Can I just use my phone instead? It’s a more powerful device.

I am secretly the CEO of Google, and secretly planning to turn all humans into the borg.
It’s not.
I have cameras in all of your houses to monitor you activity so I can take out who speaks against my products.

I would only get them if they looked like this.

The original concept/design looks bland and uninteresting.

I think having a pair of these would be sweet, and not only because I’m curious about the power levels of random strangers.
