Have you ever really thought about what Google does? They create convenience. I can’t fault them for that… to a point, but you eventually get to a place in life where things can become too convenient. Do you remember the movie Wall-E? Remember how all the humans were super fat, super stupid and were carried around on hovering chairs? That is essentially the long-term plan of Google.
having a tool to search for things online is handy, but this new creation… Google’s Augmented Reality Glasses are just too far. Sure, they have some great applications. I’d love to see them used for medical, police and military purposes. They could even have some applications in laboratory research, but this whole video is just about making it easier to be a frickin hipster!
With the Google Augmented Reality, you are no longer responsible for tracking any of your own plans or responsibilities. Google does it for you. They’ll feed music directly to your ear so that you can walk around in an isolated sound bubble. They’ll help you navigate a book store… because it is apparently super hard to find the music section in a book store… or God FORBID, ask a real human for help.
Google is the cure for human interaction.
Here’s the official explanation from Google:
The prototype version Google showed off on Wednesday looked like a very polished and well-designed pair of wrap-around glasses with a clear display that sits above the eye. The glasses can stream information to the lenses and allow the wearer to send and receive messages through voice commands. There is also a built-in camera to record video and take pictures.
