Google Glass has been on the radar for years and finally the website has more information and some screen shots to drool over. Is this the future? Is this the next generation iPhones? Will we someday have smaller versions of this on OLED contact lenses implanted into our eyes? Who knows, but I’d love to test one of these out to see what it’s like. For a hefty early adopters price of $1500, not many people will be jumping on board to get one of these. Especially when you first have to send in an application by Tweeting or Google+ quoting #ifihadglass and 50 words of less why you would be a good candidate for a Google Glass Explorer. I’m sure hundreds of people will still be applying, so it will be interesting to see who gets them first.
I remember when early touchscreen cell phones were super expensive and rare, and now look at how many smart phones are on the market. It’s only a matter of years before things like this are more widely available and probably more intuitive. But for now, these little slick futuristic glasses look like half of a Star Trek visor on Geordi La Forge. Controlled completely by saying “ok glass” a set of commands pop up and activate. Taking a photo, recording a video, sending a text, translating words, looking on google, and much much more. Now the big question, what cell phone service carrier is this going to be released with first? And how many are they releasing in their first batch?
What would I use it for? Well simple. Food Porn and Travel the world Hands Free.
