    "Google Glass" what is it ?

    Post by papa_umau on Sun 09 Mar 2014, 1:29 pm

    Google Glass is the latest hi-tech bit of kit from Google that is worn like a pair of glasses but that allows instant contact to the internet, to be able to take a picture, or a video just by asking it to.

    Find out more about this HERE

    HERE is a report from The Telegraph that tells us that some people are not quite ready to accept this revolution in hi-tech gadgetry.

    Would you like to have one ?

    Another bit of sci-fi I think.

    Then again, many bits of sci-fi kit that have been used in the movies finish up being in common-place use.

    I think it is really cool.

    I can actually see teachers of the future wearing one of those things when they are teaching a class, as they would be able to read stuff and see the class at the same time.

    You have no idea what goes on behind a teacher's back when he or she is turned to face a blackboard or a whiteboard.

    Yeah, I must admit that put like that this new bit of tech could be a great teaching aid.

    The only thing that might put me off is that changing focus on something displayed on the screen of the "thing" with one eye while trying to focus at a different distance with the other eye could be problematic.

    Also, if like a smartphone it had two-way conversation, it might look as if you are talking to yourself.Twisted Evil

    Latest update....

    Post by papa_umau on Sat 12 Apr 2014, 11:42 am

    I found a bit of news about Google Glass on the internet today; here it is:

    Google Glass, the internet giant's web-linked specs are going on sale for one single day next Tuesday !

    They are going to initially cost 894.00 to order online.




    894.00 is it ?

    That sounds like the day that will be set aside by Google Glass for all of the rich, must-have, technical nerds in the world that have nothing better to spend their money on.

    I am sure that after the market-need has been tested this way Google Glass is going to come back into the more open market with a much more realistic price.

    Something tells me that if this bit of kit ever gets down to a price that most of us can afford we are going to see these strange internet-connected spectacles popping up everywhere.

    What the wearers of this thing will be doing about the average scroat ripping them off their heads before disappearing into the crowd, I do not know, as surely this is going to be the easiest bit of kit to steal that has ever been out there since technology went to the masses.

    Anybody ?

    While I have already said that those things are "cool" I cannot see them selling very many of them at just under a thousand pounds. affraid

    It will be interesting to see just how many twits have that kind of money to chuck in that direction.

    Keep us updated Papa.

    I sure will Angie, as this sale will almost certainly hit the headlines on or after Tuesday.
