Google Glass – making it OK to talk to your face

21 February 2013

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.’

    Should you really have someone who's obviously massively against technological advances writing articles like this? It's a really interesting project and you're sounding like a middle aged housewife who's stuck in the present and refuses to accept change. Ahh you're one of those people who class themselves as a "full-time mum" aren't you. makes sense now.

    Think of the positives. You'll be able to whack one off on the bus whilst pretending to read a book, and no one will know! Of course, your cock will be out and that.
