Is there anything that company won't stick their long arms in?
Looks like the 2014 version of douchebags talking too loud into bluetooth earpieces.
Won't be getting one of those eyeball things!
As dumb looking as those bluetooth earphone things some nerdy people wear these days
Do people have to be staring at an electronic screen 24/7?
Luddites are abound on Datalounge, I see. Why is there such a large contingent in this place that is vehemently anti-technology?
This is revolutionary technology. It's basically having a computer on your head. The possibilities of this is astounding, to say the least.
And all you boring fucks can say is "looks lame"???
But they are So Fucking Ugly.
The frames are tacky and ugly. I don't care if they can transport me to Tahiti in my mind. Screams Daddy-Jeans-Wearing Tool. Google needs to fire their designers.
The hipsters will wait till the iGlasses in white frames come out.
I like it
^^ u would
Not building something that works for people with glasses is stupid. They say they are partnering with companies. Great so unless you have perfect vision you will have to buy google glass and a special pair of prescription glasses.
The idea is invasive and users will have an outward signal for others to interpret negatively. These glasses will mark people as untrustworthy.
I am not sure how these glasses will be useful? People are already connected 24/7 with their smartphones, tablets etc which are already capable of voice operation (handsfree aspect).
Can you watch a movie on it? I think that would be really cool.

The question is why did it take twenty years for a heads up display when the auto companies have had them for an entire generation?
I'll wait for the contact.

Yeah, R14, it'll be a fucking picnic walking down the street with everyone watching a different movie on their Eyewear by Douchenozzle. I can hardly wait.
I foresee tripping and falling.
ww for r9.
And of course there will be douche bags driving with them on and slamming into the back of parked cars.
I didn't read all the link but it looks like somebody leaked this year's Google April Fool's joke.
I keep reading this thread name as "George Glass".
I am so clumsy and accident-prone, Google Glass would have me tripping, falling and running into things all day long. I'll have to pass on this one.
I gave up after reading too many paragraphs that wouldn't tell me wtf google glass is
If these start showing up on the streets of NY I will start a viral campaign to say, "Douche!" to every person you pass wearing one of these.
So once again, I hate to sound like a broken record, but Detroit had these decades ago.
And what did Detroit do with them decades ago, R27?
oh joy. more people falling into water fountains; tripping on potholes or crossing the streets on red.
I'm right there with you, R25.
What the hell is it? A telephone that doubles as sunglasses?
Will they be banned in cinemas, legitimate theaters, concert venues? Or can Ken Mendelbaum buy a pair and get back to business?
Why doesn't Google spend its R&D fund on a useful technology like alternative sources of energy or a cure for epilepsy (which are both perfectly, if somewhat unethically, able to be monetized) rather than this stupid shit for rich, white assholes?
Well, if that doesn't just say it all, R32.
R32 don't you know epileptics have difficulty holding devices? This will work out well for them.
Mrs. George H.W. Bush
Why is that funny, R34? I know it shouldn't be funny, but it's funny.
If they ALSO married this with a phone, I could see it being useful-ish.
But if I still have to carry around a smartphone, and this doesn't really do anything different than a smartphone does beyond allowing you to keep looking up and out, instead of down... I don't see the immediate benefit. It's just another "thing" to keep track of, that's expensive, and that looks rather silly on your face.
Though like someone said above, I bet if Apple came out with it, and called it "iGlasses", they'd still a hundred million of them and every doofy hipster or hipster-wannabe would be wearing them around.
The fact that everything these things "see" and "hear" will be going through Google HQ, being parsed apart for ways to target you with advertising, is also rather off-putting.
I imagine these things would have to be banned in movie theaters, locker-rooms, strip-joints, and more.
I'll wait for the implants.
R6, I love technology and find quite a bit of it really useful, but I don't get the need to be connected 24/7. These things are just the next step in that. Can't find your way across the street have Google Glass direct you to the nearest crosswalk.
I will be interesting to see what happens once we have a generation that has grown up on these and can't function without the added tech.
Personally I find a lot of what we're doing more isolating.
How long does the battery last? They didn't show anything about how you charge it. Can you imagine having to stop every four hours to make sure this thing is charged up?
And will driving with this sort of distraction on your face be legal or not? On one side, it's a heads up display so that's good. On the other, it's a distraction, so that's bad.
The big question here is can we watch porn on them?
Hopefully Darwinism will start to kick in for these douchebags in a big way.
I've been utterly sick and tired of idiots glued to their cell phones while driving. There is NO reason for it. NONE.

Nope, Google keeps track of everything you do.
Would you have a conversation with someone in a bar wearing this thing, knowing they could be recording you?
At a rumored $1500 a pair, I don't think these are going to be flying off the shelves.
I bet project director Steve Lee has a hard body and big cock.
[bold]Bar Bans High Tech Glasses: Google Glass Privacy Issue[/bold]
As a Seattle Bar bans high tech glasses that allow people to take photos or videos with a simple voice command, Facebook users debate whether the glasses could be invasive.
Rolling off the assembly line now... unboxing videos hitting the internet.
I still can't imagine what kind of douche would actually wear this in public.
And I can't imagine that most bars, locker-rooms & health clubs, etc., wouldn't ban them.
