Well now who would have thought that the world would be so influenced by the Google glasses that it will start entering almost every domain and aspect of our lives! In fact when people began discussing the various uses and purposes of Google Glasses it was pretty evident that it was thought of as a unique technology of wearable computers that could bring about a whole new revolution with respect to various kinds of activities, but whoever thought that it would enter all the realms of the society!
That’s what the ‘Explorer’ program is all about!
The explorer program was one where in Google chose to ship of 8000 pieces of the Glass to various people all over the globe. These people all belonged to various different fields and not just information technology. It enabled Google, and of course the explorer of the various uses and benefits of Google Glasses in their respective industries.
So, what really is the Glass all about?
The Google Glasses are a set of wearable computers that can be worn on your eyes just like an ordinary pair of spectacles. People can put it on like they do any simple pair of glasses and you are good to go!
However, the Glasses don’t actually have glasses in them. It is just a thin frame that sits on your brow looking like eyeglasses. However, the latest version comes with a twist and go set of glasses with different frames that you can fit into your Glass to help you look trendy while taking care of its functionality.
The recent version of Glass comes in a titanium frame which is strong and yet flexible and lightweight enough to sit atop any pair of the designs they offer. Google offers 4 frames for prescription glasses and 3 for shades to enjoy the sunny side.
Is it event relevant in today’s world?
See, the thing about futuristic technology is that sometimes people find it extremely irrelevant in the present times. This is probably the biggest reason so as to why we her of the Glass haters and attackers every now and then.
Did you read about that good natured lady who was attacked at a bar because she was wearing the Glass? Well, it has definitely caught my attention and made me realise that I for one don’t want to flaunt it around.
I guess the bigger question here is whether the people are ready to accept it as a device that does not attack personal privacy. I mean, people are okay with being clicked with a smart phone or a tablet, but suspicion rises when it comes to the glass because of lack of awareness.
Your best bet to survive it would be to explain to people how the Glass works and how it does not hurt anyone’s privacy! You must try to show people all that the glass is ‘incapable’ of to ensure that people stop looking at it as a shotgun
