Google’s Project Glass

This might wow those more easily hypnotized by “ZOMG THIS IS LIKE LIVING IN THE FUTURE” prototype gadgets, but the likelihood of Glass shipping as an actual product (much less be widely adopted) is very small. On top of that, who the hell wants to be “that guy” walking around a city looking like a cyborg cosplayer who talks to himself? I feel silly enough using Siri in public and that’s even with the option to appear like I’m talking on the phone.

That being said, there is something inherently neat about a hands-free, portable display device. Stuff like the HUD navigation on foot and being able to share a video feed of what you’re seeing is pretty cool stuff.

In other words, I’m just waiting for the cybernetic implant version of Glass before I get excited.
