Google Glass is a clever device being tested for a public release in the future. The device is seated on a pair of glasses and responds to voice commands. It can take images and video and also display information to a portion of the user’s visual field.
Amazingly, all of this technology is accomplished by what appears to be an ordinary rectangular piece of glass attached to an electronics case smaller than a USB drive. The device weighs less than the average pair of sun glasses.
Glass Explorer Program Lets Lucky Few Test Google Glass
Though not yet available to the general public, the Glass Explorer Program allows some lucky consumers to test the Explorer Edition available for 1,500. The consumer version is expected to be released later in 2013 with a significantly smaller price tag. The retail price is expected to be similar to the cost of a smartphone.
Things Google Glass Can Do
Google Glass can take video from the user’s perspective whenever given the verbal command, so much of the video Google is using to promote the device involves unique and exciting events such as riding a roller coaster, doing gymnastics, flying planes, skydiving, fencing, horseback riding and more.
The video also includes touching moments such as playing with children and pets and dancing with a partner. On the practical side, the video shows how Glass can provide GPS directions while driving or information you need for your flight in an airport.
Geeks Will Love Google Glass
Gadget geeks who have already snatched up devices such as smarthphone Nexus 4, mini tablet Nexus 7, or full tablet Nexus 10, are likely to be interested in Google’s new and innovative gadget.
In fact, it has a strong draw for any gadget, technology or sci-fi enthusiasts looking for some of that future technology they’ve always been waiting for. If nothing else, Glass looks and behaves like a so-called futuristic device and the novelty of it will be enough for many people to want it.
Average Tech Users May Hesitate Before Buying Google Glass
People who already have a smartphone to take pictures and video and use as a GPS may hesitate before shelling out money on a new device that does similar things even though Glass does those things in a unique way. Some might think it looks silly or feels akward to wear.
Some might feel they would never have any use for such a gadget. Some may wonder how hard it will be to learn this new way of interacting with Glass. Some people may worry about the price tag.
Google Glass is Likely to Succeed
Overall, the product is likely to be very popular and should be a hit along with other Google devices such as the Nexus series. Once a few people have them and post their unique pictures and videos to YouTube or other media sharing sites, more and more people will want one, although we should not expect one in every home for a good while.
