What Will Google's 'Glass' Actually Be Like to Wear? - VIDEO


Google released a new video trying to explain what it will be like to actually wear its 'Project Glass' glasses. It's not clear if the experience will outweigh the fact that you have to walk around with these (see photo) on your face all the time, but they've expanded their preorders, so if you're enthusiastic you can apply here.

  3. Always remember that when it comes to Google, they are, above everything else, the largest advertising company on the planet.

    When it comes to all of those nifty free services like Gmail- if you don't pay for a service, you're not the customer- you're the product.

    Sure, some people in the company are developing stuff like Glass because it's cool, but the company is funding the development because it will help them target ads to you with even more accuracy and so that they can make even more money.

    And as for buying hardware, like Glass, directly from them, I bought some hardware (Google Nexus 7) directly from them last year even after I read about tons of quality control problems, and, sure enough, something was wrong with it. What followed, and I say this without a hint of exaggeration, was the worst customer service experience I've experienced in almost fifty years of living. It was a crazy train straight to hell.

  4. How long until the first "Don't Glass and Drive" law?

  5. Wait... you have to send them a special, agonized-over, art quality application for the privilege of giving them $1500?

  6. Just to counteract Eric's comment, I just want to say that I don't think Google glasses are cool at all. They're like 2013's bluetooth earpiece, i.e. when you wear them, they make you look like you're either crazy or an a-hole. Pass!

  11. I would def. wear them if I needed mapped directions while driving. And any other situation when I HAVE to be on the move but HAVE to have information too.

    Otherwise, nah.

  12. Am I the only person who is not seeing anything differently than what I see now ? Are we supposed to be impressed with this little, annoying screen in screen on the right side ?

    What a lot of fuss about NOTHING.
