Google Glass is truly a unique invention that brings something fresh to the tech market. In a current market that’s saturated by smartphones and tablet computers, it’s refreshing to see something that isn’t an exact replica of the Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone or iPad. It’s probably one of the best moves for Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) as it goes to show they see a future beyond tablet computers. It also shows that they are ready to think outside the box.
Google Glass Features:
Google Glass is a revolutionary device that’s worn as a pair of shades. These glasses make it easier to surf the internet and get things done without using a handheld device such as a smartphone. Google Glass users can navigate Google Maps while traveling on the road, can look up information on the go, and socialize with friends no matter where they are. Google Glass users can also take pictures and share them right away. This technology is still new but it could have a promising future.
It’s because of all this initial excitement, there are some who claim that Google Glass will be the next iPad. Although the search engine giant’s upcoming device has much hype surrounding it like the iPad did, this device is poised to usher in the next wave of technology: wearable devices.
There is little doubt that modern computers are changing at a fast rate. Although there is really no way to tell where it will go next, technology will evolve over time. It’s possible that Google will change the future of technology with such a revolutionary gadget.
The future of Google Glass looks bright.
Such a revolutionary device can spark fear into people. Just last week, there was a petition to the White House to ban Google Glass for the fear of indecent public surveillance. It’s important to point out that a user wearing the glass can only record what’s in the user’s field of vision. Videos taken with Google Glass are also not as nearly as good as videos taken with a smartphone. As a result, if users wanted a new gadget to make it easier to spy on people, Google Glass would not be that kind of gadget.
