It's the third wave of personal computing ( remember this: http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/PDC/PDC09/CL05 ). Glass is just the beginning. Personally, I find the notion of computing at all times somewhat ridiculous, but sometimes wearing a computing device with access to the Internet (so, enabling bi-directional communication with services and data) makes a lot of sense. For sure, hackers will try to hack Glass just as they try to hack any and all computers connected to the Internet... No news in that.
Everybody should watch the Ghost In the Shell TV series.
I'm holding out for a prosthetic body and my soul in the cloud.
Today Google Glass, tomorrow bionic eyes.
@Charles:I agree with you about being connected at all times is ridiculous.
It's funny twenty years ago people were worried BIG Brother was going to be watching them. now with YouTube they might even get paid
where everyone has glasses that overlays a virtual world.
@jinx101: Is it just me, or does it seem every comments section on every site now turns into something you used to see on f*ckedcompany.com... =(
I like Microsoft's idea of computing on every surface like you see in the concept videos. Google Glasses is just an evolutionary step in that direction. Unfortunately that means we'll all have to learn to live with less privacy if this kind of technology is going to be so readily available to us and intelligent enough to provide information that we want without us providing a lot of context. That said I can't wait for someone to develop a "virtual" x-ray vision app for Google Glasses. I bet you could do something like that with Kinect today. Mirror...mirror on the wall...
*snip* Andreesen certainly does look like a conehead
You shouldn't say that too loud. Black helicopters are coming for you now.
Glassholes is really cool
