Just stumbled across Google Glass today. Not sure what kind of implications it has on photography but, it looks interesting. Anyone heard of it?

Here's a link:

It's for super nerds. It's been known about for a while but never really caught on. It's woefully impractical and serves no beneficial purpose imo.

I thought I heard about something like this awhile ago.

I don't think I'll be signing up for one anytime soon, just thought it looked interesting.

Yeah, it's been around for a while, just made a resurgence recently for some reason. I heard about the $1,500 price tag so it's probably going to be a "fad" thing among tech heads and that might be about it.

It will be for super nerds, as long as the glasses look nerdy.

If they manage to make these glasses look good and fashionable, everyone will use them. I know I will.

I totally disagree about it being only for nerds. Just consider what some people already do to themselves or make themselves wear. Once this technology is developed where it works as easily as what you see on the video i would imagine everyone getting a pair. But if its like the way siri is now or google voice then the tech just isnt there yet.

Yeah I'm with you there, Siri doesn't recognise my accent along with many others. All the people I know who own an iPhone 4, not one of them use Siri, EVER

My five year old daughter is the only person who uses Siri on my phone... She will probably be wearing these glasses some day.

I would love a pair, and I don't consider myself a nerd. I don't even play computer games :O

SIRI was fun the first few times I played around with it, but trying to really use it is very frustrating. Nothing makes me want to throw my phone against a brick wall more than that POS software. I've stopped using it...it's either that or destroy the phone in anger when it replies with something completely unrelated to what I'm looking for.

Its a cell phone camera in a set of glasses. People who want something better than that are still going to get a dedicated P&S, mirror less or DSLR vs. using google glass.

It has some interesting potential in how people interact with the world and share photos videos without having to stop what they are doing.

Personally the turn by turn navigation being right there would be very useful vs. having to look down at a cell phone or a GPS device. Even if a GPS device is mounted on the dash you still have to focus on it vs. the road to read it and even with turn by turn voice people still tend to look at the GPS unit to double check distance, ETA etc...

Besides the price for the first few years will keep it out of most peoples reach unless they are very passionate about it and that will be a small percentage of people.

i think these will be really popular in some sports and people will use them like they use GoPro cameras on helmets. As far as walking around in normal life? Probably not as much.

It would be nice to use them as "facetime." Everytime my wife is out shopping and i ask her to pick me something up for a project i am working on, it'd be nice to just see what she sees. Currently she holds the phone up to the products in the aisles...and probably looks like a weirdo doing it....
