What exactly is Google Glass? You wear Google Glass – short “Glass” – exactly like normal glasses, on your nose. Glass comes with clear as well as tinted shades, but you don’t necessarily need them. What makes Google Glass so special is a tiny screen that sits a little bit above your normal eye-view. Glass can connect to your mobile phone via Bluetooth and has a pretty good voice recognition. In addition, it touches the bones behind your ear and in this way allows you to hear sound through vibrations.


How long will it be before there is a lawsuit for damaging eyesight...and who is to say this little contraption won't cause brain tumors?

There was a time when cell phone technology was considered safe too...look how that turned out, it took many years, but the truth that putting cell phones up to your ear constantly created cancer for user's in many cases.

I even am reminded of saccharin being a safe alternative to sugar, that didn't work out very well either or how about asbestos being use as a fire retardation...asbestos abatement anyone?

We have many things that become mainstream to quickly without understanding the long term effects...if I were anyone contemplating the usage of Google Glass...I think I would be a little hesitant about the long term effects before I embarked on every day usage or abusing it in any way...eyes are very tricky...they can be altered by doing abusive things to them to much...even looking at a computer screen or tv or perhaps even glancing at the sun can damage them easily.

Bring it on, I can't wait until I can get one implanted into my brain.
You know they said going over 30 miles an hour would destroy our lungs once, I see the next step in human evolution is incorporating human with machine, stronger, faster, information available by just thinking it.
Pity I will miss most of it.
Cyberpunks ftw!!!

Also can you give us a link with proof that mobiles cause cancer...If they did they would come with a warning.

google glass will be an ad hoc technology to the already prevalent technologies all around you.

Walking down the street there you are with a flashing plug in your ear. Say hello to blue tooth headsets.

Sitting on the bus, there you are swiping away on your phone. Say hello to mobile internet.

Reading your Kindle? Say hello to E-books on the go.

But put it in one pair of glasses the sit on your face, unobtrusively and where you are still making relative eye contact with people as you do all of the above, it's the destruction of humanity...

"I don't like sliced bread, because I'm allergic to yeast."

And how long will it take for google glasses to become obsolete?

Who knows what other companies have in R & D, someone could be working on contact lenses that perform the same actions.

But it is the next step towards transhumanism, and it will change peoples lives (i.e the people who can afford a pair.) And I could imagine how many accidents could occur when people get distracted by this tech.

I'm picturing the headlines now- 'Man watches porn through google glasses, causes multi-lane pile up'.

www.cancer.gov...

The reason there is not a warning yet is because they have not been able to show actual proof, but that does not mean it is not possible, perhaps the fact there is a concern related to the usage is enough for me.

So your claims in your OP are actually false....even your link says brain tumours have not increased since mobile phones have been used, but in your OP you imply that "in many cases" mobile use has caused cancer...
Embrace the future the future is bright the future is chrome.

Dont know about safety issues or anything of the likes.
But Google Glass is awesome. I was lucky enough to try on a pair at a (the word eludes me atm) but one of those technical convention! the word was convention! (
), where you can see alot of upcomming products and such.

Google Glass blew my mind. I can not wait to get a pair of my own


I am also very excited to see what sort of "apps" developers and people will come up with for the Google Glass. To me, they are a step forward.

BUT one thing about the safety issues. I am seeing more and more people not being able to put their smart phones away for even 5 minutes, wether it is at dinner, the movies or anything.
But worst of all, there are so many people who can not even put that damn phone away while driving. I have been close to being driven of the road, by someone I was passing who had not seen me because their nose was planted in their smart phone while driving their car. This has happened alot of times, not just once or twice. They have no control/feeling of where there car is, because of this bloody phone. And so many accidents are happening because of this. It is really scary..
Google Glass would be a good alternative here, at least they can keep their eyes on the bloody road while speaking a text. The best thing would be if they did not text at all, and focused on driving while they are bloody driving. But they simply dont..

Google Glass is not the future, it's the first step towards that future though. We really need to work on space exploration and finding new planets to populate soon.

Yes, I agree, we must destroy all new technology!
Just like our forefathers tried with the looms!
We must stamp on any form of technological progress out of fear and our endearing ignorance.

RISE! Luddites, RISE!

If cellphones can give brain cancer then I'd be dead a long time ago as I had often fell asleep on the phone with my wife and exes. Cellphones cannot harm cellular integrity of any kind, including DNA. These tests have been done over and over and over again. The only problem that glass will create is the increase in voyeur "porn" by glancing over at random people's chests and permanently recording it. People don't think much about letting people see their cleavage because people aren't supposed to stare but glass allows you to stare for as long as you like. Sure, you could use a cellphone but that's not discreet. As for those out there ready to claim that there's a time limit and a requirement of a light flashing, those are just features that can eventually be disabled. It's not hard to break the LED of a camera is it? But rooting / hacking the phone and modify it with custom features wont' be that much harder.

Privacy is the only thing that will prevent this phone from being truly successful and the NSA killed Google's chance already.

I guess seeing people walking down the street talking to themselves will be the new norm shortly. Gees, I wish this would have happened long ago. I knew some people who were constantly talking to someone who wasn't there years ago, everyone avoided those people. How are we going to distinguish these kind of people from normal people now?

But this has been happening for near a decade. Bluetooth head sets have had people walk around talking to themselves for ages. You stop and respond to them, wondering why they are so casual and familiar with you, a stranger, and they wave at you as if to say "No no, I'm on the phone." and then YOU feel like the crazy one.

I'm waiting for the day two people with head sets confront each other, and both in a state of "Go away I'm busy" wave the other on, and get stuck in a perpetual feedback loop.

They had none of this technology in the sixties and seventies. I guess I forget to tell others that I am getting old

They're already forbidden to be used or worn in certain places, and they're 1500$
I don't see them becoming a trend, but I could be wrong.

Google glasses are the camera's in London, except you wear them now.

Google glasses are the drones in the US, except you wear them now.

iPhones are our RFID tags.
Google glasses are the eyes that keep tabs on us.

Brave new world, isn't it.

(fracking nightmare)

That's why I won't be sporting them without severely hacking them so they aren't used for malicious reasons ie: government / spying stuff.

Afriad of new technology? Patently ridiculous.
I simply have no use for them and I've better things to spend my money on...but by all means, knock yourselves out. However...stick them in MY face and I'LL be the one knocking you out and trashing them.

(Of course the attack will originate from your 6 o'clock and neither you nor google will ever see it coming...)

While I was simply joking, there are MANY people out there for whom this is NOT a joke and they WILL take great offence if you start sticking your "nose" where it does not belong and all the new tech in the world won't be able to prevent you from picking you teeth up off the ground like so many bloodied chicklets.
Yes it's illegal and yes if they are caught they WILL goto jail but that will be of little comfort to you as you sip apple sauce through a straw....but what do I know.

-Peace-
