The latest new computer eyewear is Goole Glass which was created by Google X. The first prototype was developed in 2011. You might be asking exactly what is Google Glass. Google Glass is a computer that resembles eyewear. There is a touchpad on the side that reveals such things as weather and news. There is also a camera that can take photos and capture 720p HD video.
There are some people already having concerns with privacy issues because of the camera and video capabilities of Google Glass. Some are concerend that people can secretly videotape or take images of non-suspecting people. I think that Google Glass should be no more of an issue with privacy as cell phones are. In today's society, how much privacy do we really have when cameras are just about everywhere. I think my only concern would be how Google Glass could affect your vision.
Google Glass seems like something out of a James Bond movie. It is amazing to me how far we have come with technology. It will be interesting to see if consumers are receptive to Google Glass. Some consumers will get their chance to purchase Google Glass when it is made available on Tuesday April 15, 2014. There will be a limited supply and the price tag for Google Glass will be $1,500.00. Although the price tag is enough to scare me off, I am sure there are some technology geeks out there that will be the first ones to purchase this new computer.
