Google Glasses

Happy graduation to all the graduates this past weekend! We wish you all nothing but the best in all your future endeavors!

In this week’s post we’d like to talk about Google’s new invention, Google Glasses. Have you heard of them? On May 24, 2012 a video surfaced showcasing the glasses in action. The 16 second clip was of a person doing backflips on a trampoline wearing the glasses. If you go to HuffPost Tech’s Facebook page you can access the video.

The glasses allow the user to video chat with friends, know a friend’s location, provide gps capabilities, check the weather, set things to your schedule, etc. The glasses pretty much do what a smartphone would do, but on your face!

You can see a complete video of the glasses via this link:

The glasses have aroused some concerns and benefits, which are also detailed in the above video. People will now be introduced to notifications projected onto their line of vision which could be problematic. On the other hand, the glasses are controlled by a person’s voice commands versus hand controls with a phone. There are pros and cons to the new technology, but the invention could house great benefits in the fields of advertising and communication.

What do you think? Yay or nay to the new Google Glasses. Leave your comments below, we’d love to hear what you have to say. Until next week everyone!!
