Yesterday Google gave us a sneak peek at what it’s calling “Project Glass”. Basically, these are augmented eyeglasses that keep Google services available to the wearer at all times. According to the video the company posted on Google+ Wednesday, the glasses will have the capability to display messages, chats, appointments, weather and maps right in your field of vision.
The pictures on the Project Glass page show people modeling the specs, a thin silver band that runs across their foreheads and a small screen over their right eye. Some might say they look stylish.
So for today's discussion:
Is this device just a gimmick or will it take off? How would you use it? Always wear the glasses? Remove them in company, like putting a cell phone away? Will the technology become useful in other ways? Will these glasses go with my tube tops?
