We can all agree that the potential of Google Glass is exciting. But as it stands, the execution more or less exists solely in the imaginations of Google’s team of engineers. Regardless, we’re on board; we want to participate in the Mountain View company’s vision of the future. So of course, TechnoBuffalo jumped at the opportunity by registering for the project at last month’s Google I/O.
In return, we got a promise. The above block of engraved glass, no bigger than a deck of cards, either represents one of the most innovative products in history, or an enormous ruse that’s nothing more than amorphous material.
The possibilities of Google Glass are nearly endless, and Google itself demonstrated how the technology can amplify something like extreme sports. It’s an experiment at present, which Google more or less acknowledged when it opened up pre-orders to attendees. But it can be something great, maybe even as soon as 2014.
We’ve got our golden ticket. Hopefully wearing a computer on our faces will be cooler than it sounds. From what Google has shown us, it absolutely will be. Let’s see if the search giant can deliver on its quite lofty ambitions.
