The Glass life

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.

Weirdo with the glasses


TechCrunch published an article about Google glass by Mike Butcher. As we all know, the technology is an innovative product that would be a technology breakthrough. However, as we would have thought, the idea of speaking to the glasses is rather awkward and weird. In this article, Mike mentioned that people want to interact with one another but having the glasses on would require that you to speak to the glasses in order for an user action to take place. This causes breakdown on social interactions. For Google glass to appeal to the mass market, I believe there should be more improvements made.
