When I first heard about Google Glass, I
thought it was a great technological advancement. However, being one of
the millions who wear glasses and American to boot, I found myself instantly wanting more.
While the idea was neat, the thought of wearing Glass
in addition to my glasses was rather off-putting. If only Glass could
be integrated with my prescription, or at least offer a
Google I/O brought just that! On the show floor was a new version of
Google Glass being integrated with prescription glasses. It’s only a
prototype at the moment, but it’s a step in the right direction. It
currently makes use of the same software as the Explorer Edition of
Glass too. The only difference is the hardware.
Hopefully we’ll see more about it later this year. In five years
we’ll have a Saiyan Scouters and in ten we’ll have some ballin‘ black sunglasses that can do everything a computer can do while being accessed by our thoughts!
Okay – maybe I’m getting a little ahead of myself. But you have to
admit, it’s definitely a step towards the sci-fi community of tomorrow
we all dream of.
