Google’s augmented reality glasses have now been officially outed under the name “Project Glass”.
My initial thoughts are basically the same as what they were when the initial reports started coming out. Given Google’s recent track record, I’m skeptical of their ability to execute here, but I find technology projects like this inspiring. Good for Google to trying something completely new and bold.
Is this something we want and/or need? That’s a dumb question, in my opinion. You do great things by anticipating future needs, not by living in the cage of current thinking.
Obviously, I’m generally negative on Google, but I love the entire concept of Google X — er, Google[x]. It reminds me of the Google we first grew to love.
I hope they can pull this off.
