I am a geek, I love the cool toys and the wonderful stuff technology allows us to do.
While I understand peoples concerns about privacy, I don't think it's going to reach the point where someone tags you in a shot, and you suddenly
get targeted advertising sent to your glasses.
Largely because of battery life.
I have yet to see any stats on how long the battery life would be for someone to use the glasses for. However, add in the energy costs of wifi/mobile
internet and you are looking at a serious and constant battery drain. Then you can add in the energy drain in constant use of just the projection unit
Sure your smart phone has up to 8 hours of idle time, but when you start surfing, watching movies, navigation and so on it quickly eats into how long
you can do it.
Then, as with smart phones, you can get add blocking software to filter crud out.
I wear glasses, and I would love some sort of heads up display that was light weight and could feed me 3 d movies and the like on the lenses, and yet
with a flick of the button allow me to see normally. Think of the applications you could add, distance range finders, pulse and respiration, instant
translation of languages subtitled to your field of view and so on.
Can any technology be misused? Certainly, but does that mean we should live in fear of its misuse no. Though I suspect there will be some lawsuits
and so on about the privacy issues and selective add targeting.
