Google is actually working on twitch-responsive sci-fi-style head-up display glasses, according to a report by 9TO5Google. And the new tech apparently includes a cursor that responds to head movements. The article includes great eye-candy, including a clip from CES 2012 on Motorola's headset computer and a Terminator clip. …
Not content with knowing everything we search the web for...
...Google would also like to know everywhere we go, everything we see and say, as well as everything we hear - for good measure.
On the one hand, I'd say fuck off. But on the other, this sort of technology is inevitable. What we really need are some equally visionary law-makers to bolster our privacy rights so that companies like Google can only use the data they slurp for the things we say they can (without making it a choice between accepting everything or being excluded from what will become fundamental to interacting with society as a whole). You know; in the same way they haven't done with the Internet... muppets.
Knowing that what you say won't happen
and knowing that the future is a horror because this sort of thing is exactly how human greed will cause all such technology to be abused, is the primary reason why I've refused to have children.
They do .... Google!
the specs will tell you where the deals are
which is great because of all the cool stuff you can buy like cheese in a spray can and trainers with lights in them.
Looks like something
that "Dog the Bounty Hunter" wears. No thanks.
I already wear prescription glasses. Will I be screwed like with 3D movies? I bet I will :(
Why am I not surprised.
"There needs to be a constant communication facility though, so a mobile phone link is likely to be necessary too."
you can get prescription 3D passive glasses, costly tho!
"I need your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle!"
To make these cheap enough for gadget hoarders to buy they'll be monumentally shit. Only the military has the budget to make these feasible.
Awesome. My Google sunglasses can have arguments with my Apple shoes about what advertising I get exposed to. Now *that's* the way I always envisaged the future to be!
I'm positively quivering with anticipation for the day someone develops open-source knickers.
