Google wants to be in your future.

Introducing Project Glass.

Googles has just announced their augmented reality glasses that will provide users with real-time information right in front of their eyes.

My issue is that generally these “technological” breakthroughs only work in American cities and London. They are not developed to be as regional as their advertising promises.

For example, only half the functions of the iPhones 4S’s Siri work in South Africa because they are disabled outside of the USA. So the big promises of functions like being able to tell your phone that you feel like eating Chinese tonight and it giving you all the local restaurants are only true if you are a Yank.

So if that is the case, what will these glasses do in JHB or Cape Town? Play music? Tell you your location on Google Maps? What’s the point of that when you already probably have a bunch of devices that do that without having you walk around the streets looking like a complete tool.

Look at this chick, she’s smoking hot and can’t pull of these glasses.

If that is the case, imagine Mr. Pudgy Asian IT Guy wearing them?

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

One thought on “Google wants to be in your future.

  1. I can’t see the advantage of them. I have a friend who is glued to his iPhone 99% of the time, but at least with a phone I can see that he isn’t paying attention because he’s always flicking his fingers around! With something like this you wouldn’t even know that people were busy checking emails, texts, checking in at innane locations etc…!

    I sometimes reffer to Dr Ian Malcom from Jurassic Park when it comes to some modern technology, “Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should!”

    And you’re right, they look stupid.
