We are assured this isn’t an April fools, though I think everyone agrees it is probably an un-needed fad. Augmented reality has the potential to be amazing, not many people will deny it that, but so far the ‘reality’ has never lived up to the hype. Yes we have had fun with a few phone apps and the like, but nothing has really taken us beyond an hour of fun.
It is unclear exactly what Google want to achieve with these glasses, suggestions are more of a ‘phone in your face’, which tells us that only twats will be buying these. They will need some kind of fun aspect (or porn) if they are ever going to be successful. Time will tell!
