Erstes Google Glass Review von Tim Stevens

Google Glass ist in aller Munde. Von blindem Hype zu paranoider Angst ist alles vertreten und es gehen sogar Stimmen um die behaupten es handele sich um einen sehr ausgiebigen Scherz von Sergey Brin. Ich persönlich bin nicht wirklich beeindruckt von der Idee und dem Funktionsumfang. Bisher hatte man nur Promo Material und Sachen aus Sergeys Sicht gesehen, dann hatte Robert Scoble sein Glass bekommen, aber niemand wirklich Objektives. Daher finde ich es doppelt interessant das Review meines Kumpels Tim von Engadget zu lesen.

Ich bin immernoch nicht wirklich überzeugt oder aufgeregt, aber man weiss ja nie wie sich das Ganze noch entwickelt. Mich würde allerdings sehr Eure Meinung interessieren…



Google Glass review Explorer Edition

Stand in a line of people in just about any major metropolitan area in the world and you’ll see the same thing: slouched shoulders and down-turned faces staring glumly at smartphone screens. Some people never look away, completely immersed in whatever is happening in the palm of their hands, while others get stuck in a loop of pulling phones from pockets or purses and popping on the screens for just a moment before putting them away again for just a minute or two.

Smartphones are amazing things, but for those who have become addicted to messaging instant gratification, they are a bit unwieldy. This annoyance gets even worse as these devices grow larger and larger. Well, certainly one approach would be to relax a little and stop feeling so compelled to check for Facebook notifications every 30 seconds. Those fully immersed in the information age, however, will be more inclined to fix the physical inconveniences presented by the problem. A heads-up display seems like a natural fit, and thus we have Google Glass. It’s a headset with a projected display, a camera and a data connection that could revolutionize the mobile device industry. It could also cause a public uproar over privacy concerns. Is the potential worth the risk?
