Google glasses will be available next year for about $1,500. I’ve taken the virtual tour, and I’ve decided my everyday reality is so boring that no augmentation is going to help it.
I do, however, love the idea of popping on the glasses and giving a constant stream of voice commands that are linked to the Internet. I’ve been carrying a “Google notebook” for years; I jot down everything I want to Goggle when I get home to my computer.
With Google glasses I can get rid of the notebook and get all of my questions answered immediately. Because I shouldn’t have to wait to find out the difference between a dwarf and a midget, or if it is really possible to remove skin tags with duct tape.
