Google Glass – The Future is Now

1 Comment

The Still Mind is open to covering as broad a range of topics as possible. From mind and body, to future technology, TSM delves into everything that makes up our lives, so it is fitting to address what our old pals at Google have been up to lately.

It’s been talked about amongst peers, friends and colleagues alike for quite some time now – everyone waiting for the day when information will be accessible right in front of our eyes. Well, Google is making it happen, literally placing the information just before our eyes with Google Glass. Here’s a run through with this POV concept video:

As is evident in the video, voice commands, as well as some manual inputs are all that’s needed, and the glasses do the rest. A wealth of information is presented in a HUD (heads up display), like you’re a fighter pilot in the flight of life.

The concept for the glasses is cool, and it seems as though it is just what many people have been waiting for, however there are some who are concerned with the fact that the public will first have to get used to uttering commands out loud in public – let’s call it the “awkwardness factor”. Despite this initial social etiquette and privacy issue, this technology promises to be quite a hit, and is a bold new step in freeing us from spending a great deal of time looking down at a screen.

Have you heard of these glasses before? How do you think you’d be able to deal with blurting commands out in public?
