Google Glass is coming...

This is kind of long, but the vides are interesting.

Can't wait to see all the hipsters walking around with this on their faces.

Looks Lame

Is there anything that company won't stick their long arms in?

by No, not realyreply 202/23/2013

Looks like the 2014 version of douchebags talking too loud into bluetooth earpieces.

by No, not realyreply 302/23/2013

Won't be getting one of those eyeball things!

As dumb looking as those bluetooth earphone things some nerdy people wear these days

by No, not realyreply 402/23/2013

Do people have to be staring at an electronic screen 24/7?

by No, not realyreply 502/23/2013

But they are So Fucking Ugly.

by No, not realyreply 702/23/2013

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.

by No, not realyreply 802/23/2013

The hipsters will wait till the iGlasses in white frames come out.

by No, not realyreply 902/23/2013

I like it

by No, not realyreply 1002/23/2013

^^ 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.

Moving on

by No, not realyreply 1202/23/2013

The idea is invasive and users will have an outward signal for others to interpret negatively. These glasses will mark people as untrustworthy.

by No, not realyreply 1302/23/2013

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.

by No, not realyreply 1402/23/2013


High maintenance lover

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?

by No, not realyreply 1602/23/2013

I'll wait for the contact.

by No, not realyreply 1702/23/2013

[quote]Can you watch a movie on it? I think that would be really cool.

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.

by No, not realyreply 1802/23/2013

I foresee tripping and falling.

by No, not realyreply 1902/23/2013

ww for r9.

by No, not realyreply 2002/23/2013

And of course there will be douche bags driving with them on and slamming into the back of parked cars.

by No, not realyreply 2102/23/2013

I didn't read all the link but it looks like somebody leaked this year's Google April Fool's joke.

by No, not realyreply 2202/23/2013

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.

by No, not realyreply 2402/23/2013

I gave up after reading too many paragraphs that wouldn't tell me wtf google glass is

by No, not realyreply 2502/23/2013

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.

by No, not realyreply 2602/23/2013

So once again, I hate to sound like a broken record, but Detroit had these decades ago.

by No, not realyreply 2702/23/2013

And what did Detroit do with them decades ago, R27?

by No, not realyreply 2802/23/2013

oh joy. more people falling into water fountains; tripping on potholes or crossing the streets on red.

by No, not realyreply 2902/23/2013

I'm right there with you, R25.

What the hell is it? A telephone that doubles as sunglasses?

by No, not realyreply 3002/23/2013

Will they be banned in cinemas, legitimate theaters, concert venues? Or can Ken Mendelbaum buy a pair and get back to business?

by No, not realyreply 3102/23/2013

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?

by No, not realyreply 3202/23/2013

Well, if that doesn't just say it all, R32.

by No, not realyreply 3302/23/2013

R32 don't you know epileptics have difficulty holding devices? This will work out well for them.

by No, not realyreply 3402/23/2013

Why is that funny, R34? I know it shouldn't be funny, but it's funny.

by No, not realyreply 3502/23/2013

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.

by No, not realyreply 3602/24/2013

I imagine these things would have to be banned in movie theaters, locker-rooms, strip-joints, and more.

by No, not realyreply 3702/24/2013

I'll wait for the implants.

by No, not realyreply 3802/24/2013

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.

by No, not realyreply 3902/24/2013

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.

by No, not realyreply 4002/24/2013

The big question here is can we watch porn on them?

by No, not realyreply 4102/24/2013

[quote]Luddites are abound on Datalounge, I see

Oh, Dear!

by No, not realyreply 4302/24/2013

[quote]The big question here is can we watch porn on them?

Nope, Google keeps track of everything you do.

by No, not realyreply 4402/24/2013

Would you have a conversation with someone in a bar wearing this thing, knowing they could be recording you?

by No, not realyreply 4502/25/2013

At a rumored $1500 a pair, I don't think these are going to be flying off the shelves.

by No, not realyreply 4603/03/2013

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.

Next Apple product:


by No, not realyreply 4903/10/2013

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.
