GooGlass

Posted on Monday, April 29th, 2013

Dave!Odds are, you've heard of "Google Glass"... the computer you wear like a busted pair of sunglasses that can take photos, shoot videos, and do much of the stuff you can do with regular Google (such as search, get directions, send an email, check the weather, etc.). All in all, it's an impressive use of tech that could be a hint at how computers will even further integrate into our lives in the future.

If you haven't seen it, here's a first-person promo piece...

The problem most people have with GooGlass (as I call it) is twofold. First of all are the privacy concerns. Somebody wearing a unit could be filming you as you're having lunch or something. Second of all are the rudeness concerns. Somebody wearing a unit could be ignoring you as you're talking to them and instead concentrating on a video of kittens playing on the Glass screen.

I admit these are valid concerns.

But my problem with GooGlass is much bigger...

Is there any way of wearing this crap on your face that doesn't make you look like a complete douchebag? (doucheborg?)

I only ask because I honestly don't think there is.

Maybe GooGlass will prove so compelling that people won't care.

It's like parachute pants are happening all over again.

    People don’t seem to care about waking around with a Bluetooth device sticking out of their ear even when not on a call so probably.

  2. I agree…although, younger people seem to care less and less about their privacy. In a few years, we’ll likely not care about it at all.

    Pretty douchey. Still, nothing is as douchey as the bluetooth earpieces you slammed so beautifully with your dickhead illustration a couple years back. By the way, how’s your tooth?

    A couple comments re google glass

    We already look like zombies shuffling around staring down at our smart phone screens… how can the awkward looking glasses be any worse?

    I *love* the concept of google glass – I am not an early adopter of technology – google glass may change this.

  5. Did you see the idea for the Mac Monocle? I’d rock it.

    The one thing I like about the concept of GooGlass? Maybe those urinal dividers will get higher up now so people can’t GooView over the top of them at your junk.

  6. Yeah this, along with the smart watch, is one gadget I’ll be ignoring.
