Im sure you all have heard about the "google goggles" by now. They announced it today.




I wonder how fluid it will be when its released. Really exciting and scary how sensitive it appears to be.
Privacy issues maybe? Whats your guys thoughts?

they kind of look like Geordi La Forge on star trek

You just copy and paste what is AFTER the '=' sign in the youtube URL when you click the "VID:youtube" button

On one hand, the old fuddy duddy in me looks at this and thinks I have enough problem with idiots texting and running right into me on a sidewalk. With this they can be equally distracted by Email, the sports scores and a little pinch of porn running for atmosphere.....while running into me on the sidewalk.


The more pragmatic side of me says this is inevitable and probably a bit over due. It's only a matter of time to mate computer tech to a wearable and unobtrusive interfaces and eventually...no interface at all. I have no doubt that if we don't kill ourselves before then, my Son will live to see a direct 'wet' interface right into his own brain if he so desires the net that way. Only time...and people with too much free time on their hands.

That is wild!


I would love to have some oakleys with this tech built in.



@wabbit2000
Isnt it sad that we as a spsices have to think about what we might NOT acomplish because we very well might wipe ourselves off the planet. geeze sometimes we are just pathetic.

This is an amazing and terrifying project.

It's inevitable that technology will continue to evolve and intertwine with every aspect of our lives. The convenience of having all that knowledge essentially built into your vision in such a "seamless" way would be incredible. Imagine the educational possibilities of this.... learning a new language, history, anything.

Yet at the same time, you'd basically be putting your life into the hands of a company. In order to function most appropriately, the software would need to see exactly what you're doing, exactly where you are, exactly what you're looking at, etc. That's a LOT of information to be shared. The one "nice" thing would be that taking off the glasses would stop it all, but that's only temporary. Once it progresses further, you can bet it'll turn into an actual implant with no option to disable. At that point, you're basically pledging your life (or your child's life) to a company.

agreed, i think that there is so many uses for this. With basic facial reorganization we have now, they could easily have a police officer wearing them, while it scans everyone he sees and alerts him of someone wanted etc.


anyone seen the "eyephone" episode on futurama?? that will be next jk jk

It is the future, does not matter what we think. The line to get these and this technology will be miles long, people will camp out as they do for iPads now.

Personally I am not a fan, I hate cell phones, never mind computer glasses, so I'm not a good person to ask.

i wonder if this will be a standalone device, or accompany to an android phone? Like a Bluetooth headset would, that way you still have a phone for more private messages, or in an office, library etc.

I'd imagine it would be bluetoothed to your own mobile device. Thats alot of computing power, electrical power and battery life to pack into a pair of sunglasses.

The possibilities are truly endless if they can really fine tune this. But just as other members have already said, you would be putting alot of personal information in the hands of a company, not as if we arnt doing that already with our current cell phones we use everyday.

Just the next step in the dumbing-down of the population. No need to figure anything out; even trying to work out the location of a particular book-shelf will be too much effort for the next generation.

And as for privacy, it's already virtually extinct. This could be the final nail in the coffin.

And they call it progress...

for sure, hopefully it is made a reality like the video

from their g+ page


So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do.


did anyone remember how accurate and sesitive the kinect looked when it was announced? aka prject natal

I wonder how much these will cost
siri on the iphone does not even work
that well when you *talk* to it, while
this is cool, it is still probably a few years
away from actually working like that.
Can you imagine the morons running aroun
with these things on driving? I dunno they
are shoving tech everywhere on us
and to think google will be tracking what
we see and do no thanks.

I just saw this on skynews and was like 'wow, this looks bloody brilliant' but at the same time i was like 'hmmm, not sure i want google seeing everything i do inside and outside!!'

But i reckon loads of people will buy this and i'll probably be the odd man out if i dont!!

Very star-trekkie!!

On second thoughts i wont buy this gadget.... i get out of the house to get away from technology, with these goggles i never will get away from it!!

Also, who's to say that these goggles can't read your thoughts or one day will????

And

What if these things soon incorporate x-ray? First they will be for Police and Security but you know this will be available to everyone soon but anyway even Police and Security being able to see through your clothes will be VERY intrusive!!

brilliant concept but it will be a decade or two before we actually see what their real goal is, theyre just doing what they can with current tech.

But i agree if i can have this without having to worry about having to answer to or being tracked by a corporation im all for it.


hacks will jail break it hopefully

Glasses? Seriously?
A bit outdated to be honest, there are already several companies working on contact lenses that will be able to do the same, including taking pictures and making calls. Although the technology is already far ahead, it may take another 5-10 years until they hit the market. I'll rather wait for that.

I don't see any issues with privacy, there are strong regulations already in place that won't allow Google or any other entity except for law enforcement agencies to track individuals and store data. Plus Augemented Reality will be indispensible in a few years from now, the positive factors and uses outweigh the negative by far.

"Nowadays, anyone who cannot speak English and is incapable of using the Internet is regarded as backward."
The same will be the case with Augemented Reality in the near future.

And dont forget:
"The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn't think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential."

well personally id rather put glasses on when needed, then have contacts in all the time. I did spend a bit on lasik
so id be taking a step backwards if used bionic contacts.

I think the glasses will be better for a variaty of people. some people just cant wear contacts. everyone can put glasses on.


i dont think its really outdated untill its actually released publicly and there is something new surpasing it.
