Clearly there is no better way to make friends than to do it over a toast! This is truly a brilliant idea from Budweiser. You can now scan the Buddy Glass, which has a chip at the bottom of the glass. By scanning, the chip now contains your Facebook information and every time it touches another glass, the two chips will be connected on Facebook with a friend request for friendship on the social platform! Imagine the amount of friends you would make should you go around toasting everyone! You do not need to exchange business cards or save yourself the hassle to go through the introduction phrase anymore. Now, all you need is to toast! What if you could use this glass to ‘tag’ someone? What if you toast the same glass two times and you get to ‘check-in’ with that person in the event? This idea has potentially opened up doors to more possible channels of networking. Very nice.
Woah, this video from Mashable had their tech editor Pete Pachal wearing his new pair of Google glass walking along the streets of New York City. Of course, the device is definitely going to bring in lots of attention. People often get curious by things they are not exposed to or rather an odd representation of the norm. Ideally I would have expected that the Glass be a real great gadget that would sit nicely on the face with a somewhat amazing fashion sense.
The Glass currently demands a 1500 price tag which would really add on to deter more enthusiasm for the device. Personally, I like what I saw and completely fell in love with the Glass the moment I knew of what it does and how it would revolutionize humans’ daily lives. I think what we need is a great tech assistant that would help us with our daily routines but not necessarily a pair of glasses. What if we had a small badge or pin that would serve the same purpose? What if it was great technology done and programmed on contact lens?
Well, no matter what I would still want to wear a pair of Google Glass as long as I have the opportunity.
