Is this the next big thing? I was absolutely amazed when I saw this video. It’s basically everything that cellphones have in glasses.This technology will move us forward. What if this was applied to contact lenses? Think of all the applications that can be applied to this. Can you imagine going to school or traveling wearing one of these. I have learned to look through books (and the world) using different lenses, but using the Google glasses is not as metaphoric. You can actually experience a whole new world using these lens. New technology is a gate way to experience a different reality. Sometimes looking at the world in a different perspective is all you need.
The only downsides I would say are the costs and the appearance. It costs $1500, so I would recommend waiting for the 2nd or even third generation. Also the appearance looks kind of nerdy. If you could customize it to any glasses, then that would be perfect. Also it isn’t truly efficient as it can’t fully do everything your cell phone can, so you will have to carry your smart phone around too. However, it does have its perks such as seeing a place or image through another person’s eyes.
Here is a sneak peak of what the glasses can do!
