Technology has made its way into glasses, but this time it is not for eye-sight or shading! Google has brought forth these wearable computer glasses that are designed to use the same Android software that is used for cell phones and ipads. The glasses will be equipped with GPS, motion sensors, camera, and audio. There is no longer a need for a cell phone when you can send and receive messages through voice commands and record videos and take pictures with your glasses! Is technology going too far? Is the next technological step going to be inserting computer chips and software into our eyeballs or body so that we no longer need these external computers?
The video promoting these glasses shows “One Day” in the life the Google glasses-wearer. The beginning of the video starts by turning the glasses on then it shows the icons in his field of vision, he goes through different apps like chatting with his friends, using the maps, and checking the weather. Years ago, I could only imagine how “futuristic” I would have thought this technology was. While watching this video I felt like I was inside a robotic body with all these different things flashing in front of my eyes. In two years I can only imagine these glasses being mainstream and being the newest fad. Leaves me to wonder, how far will technology go?
