Would this be a huge hit or huge miss for Google?
For the past few days, Google has drawn tons of attention from the media with the invention of Project Glass (which was also known as Project X). They are augmented reality glasses, which basically transforms your whole smartphone into glasses, similar to what we saw in movies.
There are tons of debate going on about these glasses, and Google has finally responded.
As of today, Google revealed that they are currently in the process of researching and trying to develop a pair of glasses that would allow one to see and carry out tasks that would normally be conducted on smartphones.
Google’s Youtube video for Project Glass is quite hypnotizing in some way. It allows us to see the world completely different, a much more revolutionized world.
The video caused tons of hype, but don’t get carried away by the video clip. The reality is that, based on our technology these days, we are still quite far from there. There are too many factors to consider; how fragile is it, where is the battery located, radiation, just to name a few.
One last point, people are already playing with their smartphones during special events and dinners, instead of socializing with each other. Now imagine we all gather for a dinner and everyone looking through their “glass”. Isn’t that awkward!?
