    Google Glass - Pointless or the future?

    Thought I would see what the might of NSC thought of the forthcoming (to the public) Google Glass. Personally I don't really see the point. Is anyone that desperate to see their latest email, tweet etc that they will wear them rather than spend 30 seconds looking at their mobile. Is this just some technology gimmick or ego project that is going to disappear as quickly as it arrived or is it the future and Apple et al will follow suit and we will all be wearing them in the next 5 years?

    Well??

    **Before anyone starts it shouldn't be glasses, Glass is not a mistake**

      It's like that episode of Star Trek TNG when everyone plays a game all day on their optical devices which slowly takes over their minds, to allow aliens to take over the Enterprise.

      It might happen one day, but I don't see it taking off yet. People will have to make the transition to wearable hi-tech first with something less intrusive, such as a watch that receives email, tweets, Facebook updates.

      Over time, we may get to the point where 'Google Glass' is the next step and doesn't seem so crazy, socially. We're not there yet.

      Rest assured the Hipsters will have them first.

      Tech on the go, is where all the innovation and advances will be over the next x amount of years.

      What's VHS and what's Betamax is anybodies guess.

      neither, something in between. the tech geeks will love it for the sake, though its going to be a hard sell to general public. sticking somthing in pocket or handbag is far easier than having to wear ir all the time. it will also find some practical applications, couriers, warehouses, construction/builders and sales reps, where need to bring up detail on the fly is usefull hands free.

      oh and the "spying" stuff is pure fear and over reaction. you can easily and cheaply buy concealed spying equipment today.

      I'm on the fence. We were saying a long time ago that "one day we'll have computers in our eyes" or something to that extent.

      As it stands, I'm struggling to see the point. However, in the age of the relentless drive for easy access information, maybe this is actually how things are heading and handheld or laptop devices might just become a bit of an unnecessary pain.

      But won't the hipsters want this when it's 'retro'?
