It's here! Google Glass. What is it? Well....it's Google on your face. These early frames ship with the ability to take the very most recent communications from your smartphone or Google accounts and show them to you in a head-up display. They take phone calls. They send texts, take photos and video, and show maps. They deliver search results. It's pretty amazing technology.
And the developer, Mike DeGiovanni, has created a new code that allows wearers to snap a picture just by winking. That new feature eliminates the need to issue a voice command or button tap to take a picture. It's a bit intimidating to see, which is maybe why Google Glass is banned in some clubs. But if you have an extra $1500 lying around, it could be a fun tech toy for you!
Personally I am not that interested in remaining 'connected' at all times, but I can see where this could be a handy gadget. And it could seriously kill some boring 'long drives as a passenger' time. Happy Googling!
