The video posted above is what everyone hoped Google Glass would be like, just a taste of the future.
The future of technology rest on the bridges of our nose. Google has just released their version of glasses. But these glassy, un-rimmed focals lack in power. They cost about $1,500 each and each owner must be approved before purchasing Google Glass. It’s like having a smartphone attached to your eyes. With a wink of your eye, you can snap a photo, read a text, and access the Internet. There is much controversy whether or not these glasses could be potentially dangerous. No one wants to drive on a road where someone could be distracted by texting with glasses. There is also an ethical dilemma of being able to take a picture of someone without them knowing. The glasses will not be allowed in areas where privacy is important, like Las Vegas casinos. In order to purchase these glasses, there is a preliminary application to fill out. Also, the glasses cannot be shared.
