Anyone Interested in Google Glass
« on: December 11, 2013, 05:18:01 PM »
Last week a few of us at the office were sent invitations from Google to purchase a pair of their developmental Glasses called Google Glass. One of our engineers purchased a pair and I have been testing them over the last couple of days. These glasses are basically a headset computer with a heads up display. They are controlled by voice, head movement and a touchpad built in to the frames. I'd be more than happy to do a review on them if there's any interest. Like me, some of you may want to shun the technology while your out and about, but others may relish in the technological aspect of what this technology may offer while you're out in the woods. It's early, but pretty advanced technology with a ton of potential behind it. If others are interested, I can put up some pictures and more details on these glasses over the next couple of days.

I'd like to hear more about them.
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

I'd love to see more. I've read some about them but actually know very little. Thanks

I am usually one of the early adopters of geek tech but haven't given this particular piece much thought.
