[XBIT] Google Project Glass Set to Become Available in 2014 - Page 3

post #21 of 56
I cant see this taking off...

People walking around with their eyes darting up and down, trying to have a conversation and they keep going cross eyed and looking away to the side...

Not to mention how easy they would be to steal and break, I mean seriously how many pairs of glasses do people go through and whats the reason they change? They either break or lose them or they want new ones.

I'm all for innovation but I can't see this taking off at all. I think they overestimate peoples need to look like a retarded hipster cyborg. Add to the fact that the tech might not be up to the task (battery life?) and I can only see this being used for professional stuff e.g. cops or security guards. I could definitely seeing this being used for law enforcement.

I cant wait to run over people wearing these things. Walking out in front of your moving car in parking lots and stepping off the curb in front of moving cars. Wow carmagedon will be almost a reality. Its not that I want to run over them, its just it will be unavoidable.

Wow, I can't wait to run over people wearing these things using their smart phones. Walking out in front of your moving car blah blah blah...

It will be neither 'carmagedon' or unavoidable; stop being so dramatic.


I welcome the production of augmented reality glasses and will be picking up a pair as soon as I am able to.
