Google Glass - Augmented Reality Headgear 4 pros and 2 cons
This weekend I had the pleasure to test Google Glass, I think that Google's augmented reality headgear is equipped to transform everyday life. This prototype isn't the final version of Google Glass, I was told expect a public available version by the end of year at a cost between 1200-1500$.
If you want to get a beta version of the glasses here is the link: http://www.google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one/
- The glasses will free you from having to constantly pull out your phone for calls, emails or texts.
- Navigation by foot through the city is fantastic with Google Glass quite precise
- The recording of video quality is superb. The take a picture command worked well.
- Google Glass is heavily dependent on voice commands, worked quite well just received one misunderstanding error but I think it was me mumbling, very responsive.
- I think we may have privacy issues. Google glasses is able to record everything one sees and does.
- My perception Google glass the frame seems fragile and maybe easy to break.
In conclusion Google Glass hopes to be one of the newest and most innovative technologies in recent times. The world of wearable computers and augmented reality has barely been introduced, and Glass intends to be a pioneer into this field in the same way that the iPad was in the tablet industry.
Even though Google Glass is still in the development process, there are already numerous of capabilities and applications that could be very useful for consumers, such as live video and data streaming. Users will be able to utilize email, video chat such as Skype, and social networking services such as Twitter and Facebook. Looking forward to the final product!
