Google Glass – making it OK to talk to your face
The geniuses at Google still think looking like Rick Moranis and mumbling commands to yourself is the height of cool. Their frankly deranged Google Glass project is gathering pace, and it’s possible that soon we’ll all be having animated discussions while wearing the worst bins since Deirdre Barlow.
Google first started talking about their ‘smart’ glasses - which respond to voice commands and allow you to take pictures, Skype and watch video - last year, when they unveiled them to a select group of developers. Now they’re asking assorted impressionable Twitterers for feedback.
"We're looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass," Google said. (Translation: ‘Please help us. We need to hear from speccy idiots who don’t mind getting their faces punched in’).
Sergey Brin, the brave and foolish Google co-founder, was recently spotted on the New York subway testing the glasses.
Onlooker Paul Simon, 71, said: ‘Be careful, his glasses are really a camera. What an asshole.’
