theorellior: UsikFark: The funny part is that with the resultant matting to 9:16 the video is easily 1/4 size when you watch it on a mobile device.

Yes, that's a problem, but that's not a problem inherent in vertical video. I know we all want to be shooting in breathtaking, sweeping Cinemascope but vertical video has its uses.


POV cawk shots?

lostcat: People get their phones snatched out of their hands frequently here in the SF Bay Area. It seems like it would be harder to hang onto a pair of glasses, if someone wanted to walk up behind you and take them.

I also predict that people wearing these things will be targeted for hostility so much that many of them will decide it's not worth whatever amazing benefits they provide.

Personally, I would view anyone wearing glass the same way I would view someone walking around with their phone's camera obviously pointed at me. I would not be happy with them.


Google glass has a light in front that tells you if you are being recorded, whereas my Samsung does not.

Let's not get silly here. I'd need much more than a 16:9 apsect ratio for that.

[l.yimg.com image 614x383]


OH come on, he can't be real. Take the glasses off and he's still an absolute douchenozzle.

BumpInTheNight: Nice to see glass is getting some attention again, its almost as if something very detrimental to its image was in the news the last few weeks.  Something that might make people rethink the idea of having a double-camera'd device on their heads 24/7 that's owned by Google and who's "Only when you want it to" recording devices store to the cloud where its completely safe from anyone ever seeing it again.  Pinky swear.


So are you thinking the glasses constantly record, 24/7 and store everything on the cloud? Do you know how crazy that is? We can't even get decent 2g reception everywhere, let alone 3g and 4g required to transmit such huge quantities of data.... then think about the costs of all that constant data usage. Or has Google created a whole secret network, Gg, that they use to transmit all the data without anyone knowing, and without it impinging on your data plan?

I think Google should just put a lens cap on the glasses. I'm fed up of people crying about being potentially filmed constantly. It's clear they're never going to listen to reason, so let's just put a cap on the lens and be done with it. That way when someone is recording in public it's as clear as when someone holds their phone up at arms length.

I was trying to make a joke, but you're right.  They could be of great use to hikers/backpackers/climbers/cross-country skiers as well.  If everything suddenly goes all pear shaped, search and rescue could find people through their glasses.
 
2013-07-07 05:25:45 PM

PC LOAD LETTER: I'm looking forward to the first video of the police beating someone's ass for wearing it during a traffic stop.


The beautiful thing is that will only happen once or twice.  Once people realize that stealing, disabling, or destroying the device doesn't erase its recordings, or even make them inaccessible, certain kinds of behavior will have to come off the table.

The first conviction to come from such a device recording and archiving its own destruction will be delicious.

Oh, I know, I was just saying :)

I made a point in an earlier thread about how these could be used on the medical side for augmented reality - especially for assisting Doctors, Nurses and Paramedics in performing high risk, low volume procedures, such as needle pericardiocentesis, chest tube placement or central line cannulation, or for giving a heads-up display during procedures of vital signs that would be critical to know.

I could see them being used in rescue as well. Being able to see building pre-plans, or being able to see the factory frame structure of a vehicle you're having to cut apart to get to a patient would be a great thing.

Exactly: "glass, take video and post to my circles."

Boom. Instant recipe for a polite cop. Also, once the first mugger's face gets plastered all over the internet before he even has a chance to say "give me your wallet" will quickly cut down on people targeting glass users.

It won't take long for people to realize that, while it's not always recording and uploading, it's so quick to switch to that mode with little more than a sentence, you can't expect to get away with things just because they're not actively holding a camera or phone up. Even if you take the device away and smash it, it only stops it - it doesn't erase what is already on the cloud.

I never said anything of the sort about constant video feeds getting stored in some gigantic file server and I agree that would require some monsterous network that no current day ISP could support.  In fact about the only way that'd be feasible is if Google itself started rolling out ultra fast hot spots along with its fiber in those cities who've been graced with their presence.  Even then that's a ridiculous amount of raw storage vs what's actually interesting to Google.  What I am saying is everything the glass's overlays query and everything you aim it at to manually query will be stored somewhere, and you'll just have to trust them that you are the only one that'll query stuff that ends up in front of its lens or in range of its microphone.  You'll also just have to trust google that they won't sell this metadata to anyone who wants it.

at least we can see the douche with the glassless glasses a mile away.  things like NYCs domain awareness system (which i read was being rolled out to other metropolitan areas soon).should be way more concerning.  between the DAS, WIN 8, and the xbone..

Never said it did. However, the fact that there is a clear shot of his face means the likelihood of him being caught skyrockets. Not many people will risk a crime if they know there's a good chance of being caught on camera.

Whatever you would call your typical Fark post is suitably significant for whatever you would call some geek's [captured video from google glass.] Although if you honestly really need to literately type a post like that I'm assuming you'll be using Google Glass for your mirror monologue video reactions.

/I said it first. People will be wearing google glass and stare indulgently into mirrors during their videos.

More like someone with funny-looking prescription glasses being arrested under the presumption that they are Google Glasses, then having the arrest readjusted as "disorderly conduct", with all the other dashcam video "missing".

Once the cops get burned by a few videos of them beating helpless people for no reason like they do so often, they'll just confiscate ANY glasses they see when they are tuning someone up. Hell, in some places it's already illegal to videotape the police already.

Dealt with any police in the past few decades? Mostly their policy seems to be for them to do whatever they want and let lawyers sort it out later. And by sort it out later, I mean pay off people who manage to succeed in suing the city that employs the pigs, while the cops continue to do whatever they want. Case in point: LA has a annual $10 million dollar fund for paying settlements for police brutality.

I have childhood friends who are NYPD and Suffolk County NY cops that are very professional.  Bad cops are the problem not the system.
