Real Life Reactions
I recently saw a YouTube video of a man walking through Central Park wearing a pair of Google Glass. He interviewed people on their opinions of the glasses. Many thought they looked weird and they would probably only invest in them if they looked like regular glasses. Many others thought they seemed creepy because while using the glasses, it may seem that you are staring into open space, or even staring at a stranger.
Google’s Project Glass page quotes, “We’re inviting a small group of Explorers to help us discover the full potential of Glass. Follow us on our journey, and help us shape the future.”
Naturally, many of these explorers include Google employees. While researching glass, I found a very interesting youtube video demonstrating how Google searches work while wearing the glasses. Here’s a video that explains it far better than I ever could:
After watching this video, I would love to get the chance to wear these glasses around for a day. Have any of you been lucky enough to try them out? What do you think? Let us know! We are looking forward to watching where these glasses go in the months ahead. One thing is for sure, “when everyone has one of these [Google Glass], life will be more nerdy.” – Pete Pachal, Mashable.com
