You guys don't understand. it's not wireless, it's wireless e-business.You're going to be able to scare the hell out of pigeons in the park!
(Also, don't look now, but the guy in this commercial is buying pork belly futures)

id just walk up close to people wearing these and yell "google, find kiddie porn!" and run away.

I'd rather wear ugly glasses to interact with my tech than an ugly watch. So google wins this round.

Because there is always a camera readily-available, (instead of holding up a phone), things may start to get weird the day when strangers' faces will be accurately matched to a real or user name via online data...and whatever info is connected with that face.

They use bone conduction so you'd need to actually put them on.

This seems like a great way to cheat in classes where the professor is over the age of 70, especially if you got an ear piece and could stream the video of your test

Of course, if you already wear prescription glasses then these become either

A. Very annoying, or
B. Very, VERY expensive.

Over hyped over priced garbage like the Nexus Q and Chrome Pixel

I'd settle for being able to match real names with people I met at some point, but can't remember when but it might have been at that one event with the guy and the thing... like 3-12 years ago?

These are going to become the bluetooth headset of this decade; probably pretty useful if you have one but it will make you like like a complete and utter douche.

I already look like a douche so there's no downside.

Ooh, patent pending AND crowd-funded! These guys are going places.

I looked into that. It's actually a lot more complicated and expensive than the CommBadge project, mostly because smartphones didn't do voice recognition in those days.

But I have to give Siemens props for making their product look a lot like the Starfleet logo.

Eh...one of the uses something like this could have is if it could display system specs and diagrams. That way I don't have to keep looking back and forth while trying to fix things.
 
2013-02-22 11:03:42 PM  
This is pretty cool already.

Cool enough to shell out .0015?

Hmm... neh.

Well, OK maybe.

Damn it all to hell get me one.

Pretty soon you wouldn't need to actually remember anything. Though then if you lost your glasses you'd forget who you were.

Perfect for assembling those pesky Ikea entertainment centers!

I think that is the killer app.successful politicians and business people are often known for not forgetting a face or name. Imagine how you could network if you remembered everybody forever.

Wow, according to that promo wearing those glasses means I'll start having all kinds of wild adrenaline-filled adventures instead of the usual staring at computer screens all day. I'll take 'em!

Quantum Apostrophe: Looks like toothpaste technology really improved in 14 years.


It looks more like they warmed the colors in editing.  You know, faking the picture looking older than it really is by instagramming a filter on it.  But they didn't go back and un-warm the teeth, so you end up with whites having a slightly orange tint.

/doing a lot of photo editing lately

That game is calling to me with a siren song impossible to resist.  And I'm a big enough nerd to buy a PS4 right out the gate just to play it.

They'll turn into the new must have douche bag accessory, and then even if they are a great useful tool to have I'll never buy them because I'll associate them with people I loathe.

While this is some rather remarkable technology, this does not need to be available to anyone in this I need to look at my phone while driving country.

We will have a society filled with men watching porn on their Google Glass in public.

Nothing will ever get done again. The streets will be a mess.

No one here seems to have noticed the coolest part:
It will work with IPhone AND android!

Crazy that they are allowing for iPhone. But that makes me happy. Maybe I get a second gen one
