Like I’ve expanded on before, advancing technology is being dished out like cake at Marie Antoinette’s birthday party. One that I have always been questionable about is Google Glass. It seems more like a joke than a real thing. The more I read about it, the more videos I see about it, the more I can’t take it seriously. I also think back on the kid who lived across from me in the dorms freshman year. His brother makes videos, and this was one of his best.
If you liked that guy, check out the rest of his work too.
Comedian or not, I think there’s at least a little bit of truth to what he suggests here. It’s a little exaggerated maybe, but so what? There are definite flaws in this technology. For one, the battery life is very, very poor. In situations where you would rely on it, you would simply have to have a phone or computer as a backup. Aside from that, there are multiple reasons why Google Glass is just not, well, taking the cake.
But if you’re like me and have been a fan of Google since you began using the Internet, you’re still curious. How could something so good produce something so laughable? Well, turns out we have a chance to ask those questions. It turns out Glass is going on tour. The goal of this tour is to spread knowledge of the product for when it goes on sale in 2014. Everyone is invited to come out and try Glass to see what it’s all about. The tour starts October 5th in Durham, North Carolina and onward from there. Make sure you RSVP on Google+ if you’re interested!
