There are a myriad of possibilities that can be applied to Google Glass, many of which could potentially change how we interact with the world around us. In a move to excite the masses on Wednesday, Google demonstrated the technology in an adrenaline-fueled demo that our own Roy Choi likened to a Mountain Dew commercial. But, sorry, the project won’t be consumer-ready until 2014 at the earliest.
Speaking with Bloomberg TV, Google co-founder Sergey Brin said the company doesn’t plan to start a developer feedback phase until 2013 — $1,500 will get you on the list! Google has ambition, we’ll give the company that, but I don’t think anyone can argue that Google Glass is currently just a bunch of smoke and mirrors, especially because we don’t know anything tangible at this point.
That’s not to say it all doesn’t seem impressive. The project’s introduction earlier this year has prompted quite a bit of discussion, and we’re excited about Google’s vision. Will it come to fruition in 2014? That seems like a generous estimate, but we’re certainly hopeful.
