With how much we interact with the Internet in a given day, it isn’t a surprise that tech giants are coming up with ways to make it – yes – even easier to access information.
In April, Google announced Project Glass, a pair of Internet-connected glasses. Then this week they announced they’re close to bringing them to market. Developers have first grab at them – perhaps to come up with some apps to make them even better. Then they hope to sell them to the rest of us in 2014.
So, what exactly do the glasses do? They let you watch online videos, take photos and post them online, get directions, shop online and read text messages. All from a super close-up view in the corner of your eye.
Perhaps not appealing and maybe a little distracting to the everyday user who’s walking through a mall or driving a car, but I think where I see them having value – at least for me – is when I go for a run or jump on a treadmill.
That said, with close to two years before they come to market, who knows? It’s pretty much a guarantee they’ll evolve a lot more before then. I guess we’ll see…
Until next time,
