Pass It On: What Google Glasses Will Be Like to Wear – Point Of View

I love new technology and I’ve been watching what Google’s new glasses are going to be capable of.  There are a lot of upsides to being able to access information without your hands.  Watch this video and I’ll give you a few of my thoughts below, good and bad:

Wow – pretty cool.  The upside seems to be that you’ll be able to record things without having to pull out a camera.  That’ll be really handy when you’re doing something dangerous or skilled. I picture “How To” videos becoming very easy to make.  Also, it seems that people having fun can continue to have fun.

The downsides?  I see a lot of people trying to stand still to take videos, talking incessantly into the thing when they don’t understand how to make prompts work, and awkward moments with people just staring forward like a robot watching video that you can’t see.  Kind of freaky.
