T.rex: Why do i presume that the white guy is a douche, yet the Asians are using the product earnestly?[msnbcmedia3.msn.com image 560x421]
Krieghund: snailbarf: We all need to agree on a font that denotes sarcasm.This one usually works.
timujin: I was listening to some people who got into the early release... one was saying that she has a problem remembering names and faces (I have a similar issue due to a head injury) and that she wanted to write an app that would use facialk recognition software to help her with that. Another guy was a teacher who wanted to use it as a teleprompter for teaching class. Not every person that was an early adopter of the cell phone was a douchebag, nor are those who use Glass.
ISO15693: I have a pair.They are a fun toy - I'm developing a cycling app for them, to pair with my phone mounted on my backpack as a rear-view camera, and toggle between GPS directions and the rear-camera image (voice activated)I am calling it "GlassBackwards" - just so you know. You will see it in the google play store when the glasses are officially released.
redsquid: ISO15693: ...and so far there isn't any protection against someone else issuing a voice command while you are wearing them.Thank you so much. I hadn't even thought of that. So... how much fun can we have with this?
hardinparamedic: I'm actually excited for Google Glass.Not because I want to replace my BCGs, of course. But for my job. I see a lot of potential in them to integrate patient monitoring and provide assistance on high risk, low-volume procedures to people in the field. Imagine having an overlay of the vein structure being fed from a hand-held ultrasound when performing an IV on a difficult stick patient. Or having a textbook overlay on someone's chest when placing a chest tube. Being able to see active feedback during CPR from your monitor. Being able to get instant drug calculations and dosages for rare-use medications.The potential for integrated EMRs is even greater. Imagine pulling up to a patient who cannot give you any history, and is unconscious, and being able to access their medications, allergies, and medical history.Or being able to give a medical control physician a real-time look at your patient's injuries.That's what I'm excited about.
Ennuipoet: Slaxl: The people who have been moaning and whining about a product that hasn't even been released yet, for nearly 2 years, based on nothing more than how it looks.I don't know how old you are, but I would point to the early adopters of cellphones. It wasn't the technology that MADE them douchebags, they were douchebags long before. The technology just made it much easier to identify said douchebags.The same applies to Google Glass.
