This entire article is missing the "Joke Alert" icon.
At least, I hope it is.
It's difficult to imagine anyone wanting to get down and dirty with a partner who would willingly wear Google Glass. Yet one group of app developers is betting that Glassholes not only manage to get lucky, but also have a partner willing to film the whole sordid affair. The Sex With Glass app was created at a Wearable Tech …
At least, I hope it is.
Sadly this is no joke, Google Glass was after all invented by a German
Why would a glasshole need a woman? Surely Glass provides all he needs.
I most strongly agree... after all you end up having "sex with glass" not with your partner !
Nah - the next logical step will be to link it to the Internet of Thingies with the GoogleDoll (TM) that communicates with the Glass and responds to the voice commands. It might even respond to the sound of the Glasshole's panting with some appropriate noises.
They'll need their own protocol though, as IP might be open to misinterpretation and trigger a reminder to refill the doll's bladder at an unfortunate moment.
Woman - doubt it. Mirror - maybe if the mirror hasn't any standards.
No no no. This article is about Glass users, not Apple users
Oh, that's absolutely brilliant! That even gives them an "avenue" to accidentally "slurp" more data.
They can collect vast amounts of "DNA".
Get my patent lawyers on the phone.
...... virgin and gonzo porn demographic sorted.
Time to start printing t-shirts with QR codes for lemonparty and blue waffle on them :)
What are you saying I don't even.
"We asked ourselves: 'How can we make sex more awesome with Google Glass?"
You can't help but envisage this being said by someone with more knowledge of the theory (and theoretical research from certain mags/DVDs/websites) than actual practical "hands-on" knowledge?
Aside from that, I'm unsure whether the article would merit more from a "Joke Alert" icon than the "WTF?" one, as the latter is equally appropriate to the thinking described...
Who are we to judge what Google Glass users do by themselves....
I assume this will provide single handed operation. There will definitely be a need for image stabilization. Could lead to a whole new social media platform - F**kbook or twatter.
I foresee a rapid spurt of development around this app. Perhaps leading to the adoption of a new programming language C-men.
Glassholes carry their partner around with them, they've only go to take their hand out of their pocket and they can re-live the whole experience all over again, although maybe not straight away.
"Simply swipe to a new perspective. And enjoy the new view. When you connect your phone, you can even see what it's like from any angle"
Google Glass can bend light from behind an object so you can see it from another angle? Really? Or total bollox? You decide.
If a google glass user really did get the chance of a shag he'd probably invite all his friends round to watch otherwise they'd never believe him, hence multiple points of view. On the other hand, how many friends do google glass users have? More likely they buy five pairs and put the spare ones on mannequins.
Ah, nerds on an IT site making fun about how other IT nerds don't get sexy action.
But not all nerds are professional nerds some of us are nerds when we need to pay the rent others take it a bit too far.
This needs to be written in big letters on the El Reg masthead.
I think the idea they have in mind is to use the camera on your phone, routing the video feed to your Glass screen. Or just get a big mirror on the wall/ceiling, then you can BOTH(*) enjoy the different perspective(s) thus afforded.
* - Ah, I see I made the mistake of projecting my personal experience of carnal pleasures, where-in the experience is a SHARED one.
Well we keep appearing on the planet so at least one of us is getting lucky enough to breed more.
If "nerd" was a gene then yes.
Many IT folk are fairly normal, but the El Reg forum community is decidedly at the deep end.
Now is that the deep or the shallow end of the gene pool?
need to go, do not want to keep someone waiting
Ah, so you're my date on chatroulette tonight
So i am going to share it with you
Both partners wearing glass and sharing the view they are getting with each other in real time
Could be funny though, if the man gets to see the woman's glass view and see's that she's doing the online shopping, playing Candy Crush or something similar at the time too.
The film Strange Days springs to mind, 'nuff said.
I am eagerly awaiting Google Squids.
That movie was spot on on "current trends in cop behaviour" though.
"...she's doing the online shopping, playing Candy Crush.."
o we now have a hi tech variant on the old 'If I'm asleep when you finish, pull my nightie down - it's cold'
On the other hand, when a man is in the 'heat of the moment', imagining that he looks a little like a cross between a stallion and Brad Pitt, does he actually want to know what he *really* looks like?
More to the point, does he want to be reminded of what he looked like in his glass replays?
Remember to wipe it clean afterwards
And most of the time I'm glad I can take them off. It's bad enough for my self esteem while it's happening, but to be able to see it clearly afterwards, wearing my real glasses, no thanks.
"Footage is stored for on the cloud for five hours before being deleted forever."
Hahaha... yea... hahaha...
Only five hours!
That means the foreplay scenes will be deleted before I even finish! :-)
Also - sort of reminds me of "Brainstorm" - the bit where the man is experiencing an looped orgasm.
Five hours, or forever. Depending on whether you've paid the inevitable hackers their fee.
There was a report last week of an unfortunate woman who experienced a continuous orgasm that lasted so long she had to go to A&E, though they're not saying what the treatment was.
Don't think I've heard of a better attraction for hackers. Is someone really doing this to get maximum pen [ahem] testing of the cloud?
I have the perfect cure for female orgasm.
It's all right, I'm going
that's it I was desperately trying to remember that film
Exactly! Watch the 1983 trailer at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNiZP2G-nEM
This is somehow so sad, but at the same time so predicable.
Has there ever been any invention that once created somehow has not thought hmmm how can I have sex with/on/in it
Paris because I bet she will be buying one soon
"This is somehow so sad, but at the same time so predicable."
That's all the comment that's necessary. It is not possible to upvote you enough.
You do know what the first profitable application for the Daguerreotype was, don't you?
I'm sure the batteries can last for whole 5 minutes...
I see little stars exploding in your view with "5pts" written on them..
Bonus boost scores for position changes and variation.
then your score is automatically posted to Google+ where nobody will see it.
Of course your mates (if you had any) would down the pub, "Only 400pts last night! hehehe"
I didn't see that one coming
Just a matter of time. Or has it already been done?
