Live & Learn
I wonder if they come in contacts too, the type you can wear overnight?
Not sure they are there yet, but no doubt that is coming.
I don’t think I’d look good in those glasses. Lol. Agree with Tiny’s contact suggestion.
I’m sure you’d look good in them. 🙂
I hear they do come in contacts. It’s a little creepy though.
Really! I hadn’t heard that…
I can foresee a lot of eye problems and accidents happening through use of such glasses.
Among other things (invasion of privacy)
As cool as the technology is, it scares the hell out of me.
There is a darkness about it, I agree.
Mimi took the words right out of my mouth. Scary. As. Hell.
And, yes, it is all coming…
While watching, I was gripped by a profound sense of isolation. All these people moving around in a Space together with no meaningful interaction. Very, very troubling.
Especially the children, getting deeper and deeper into it.
Exactly. They won’t see it as anything but normal…. 😦
it horrifies me on every level.
I’m ambivalent. I find it (very) cool on some fronts, and frightening on others…
Too much for me…my friend, Michael, is an architect at Google, and I hear about Google Glass from him. But, really, it’s all going off in a direction that I don’t want to go. 😦
We’ll all be tugged along with the current I’m afraid.
After reading Fahrenheit 451 and 1984 as a kid, I found it hard to shake the feeling of being watched. Now, we are being watched–voluntarily. It seemed so wrong in fiction. How did we get here?
We’re here and it’s accelerating…
I found the shelving puzzling. Couldn’t you just programme shelves and objects to appear? Why would you really need paintings, sculptures etc? If we create a world where perception IS reality, how do you define perception?
Now there’s something to ponder over…
One more question. Will our pets need to wear them as well? … actually, I think Zeke would rock a pair!
Zeke rockin’ in a pair. Hmmmm. 🙂 Reminds me of the kids putting birthday hats on him. I would yell at them saying: “He’s not a circus monkey!”
This video is, at once, fascinating, exciting, thrilling, terrifying and sad. There is no question that there are huge benefits to such technology. But I don’t care whether you live in the 21st century or the 17th century, in order to get something, you have to give up something. Thanks for sharing.
Well stated John. I agree.
