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!

This inspired me to write this post. The world is advancing faster than you know it. A generation ago, no one really used computers or cellphones, but in such a short time span now everyone uses them. Back when my mom was a child, she never even heard of a cell phone. I wonder what the world has in store for us. Technology is progressing at startling rate. We may think that the new Iphones or computers that recently came out are amazing. They are ingenious for the current day, but in the future we will look back and notice how ancient they are just like how people today look back on VCRs and record players. It is almost scary to see how fast our world is advancing.
What the future has in store for us is a mystery.
Finals week is coming up for college and high school students. I thought this was a clever invention to relieve stress. People tend to fidget with pens when they are nervous. This device detects fidgeting, and get the person to stop. It is built in with motion sensors that detect nervous movement. It is still a prototype, but it seems to be working. The pen lowered experimenters’heart rate by 5 percent, and they didn’t seem to notice the pen.
Something small can be used to help out your every day life. College students and high school students use pens and pencils every day. Why not relieve some stress while at it? There is a lot of stress in school whether it is for studying for finals, improving your grade, fitting in socially, or waiting for acceptance into a college. Of course this is not only limited to students. Office workers or anyone can also use these pens.
Currently, our life deals with technology everywhere. Everyone has a cellphone, T.V., or some kind of technological device. We spend our time going on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, etc. If we are doing all these things, when do we have the time to think? People should give time to themselves every day to just relax and think about anything.
Google is a huge industry. They have been creating and promoting new ideas since day 1. Their employees have a lot of benefits. In order to improve creativity, their employees do not work all the time. They have game rooms and gyms in the work area in order to allow the employees to rest and have fun.
