Have you read "The Space Merchants", a science fiction novel in 50s by Pohl and Kornbluth? It seems that the following issue is a kind alike, creepy but promising, interesting but cool. Just let me show you what this incredible stuff is:
Google Glasses, the hot issue recently, were developed by Google X, leaded by engineer Babak Parviz. This ambitious project started from 3 years ago, and now it eventually reveal its veil with five available colors, including grey, orange, black, white and light blue.
You can not deny that the screen, as a technology, is a kind of a kludge sometime. Imagine it: You’re walking home from work, the screen on your desk or console isn’t doing anything. The one on your phone is a little better, but not if it’s tucked away in your pocket. That’s why Google Glasses were leased to world, it really exits certain values and significant. A built-in screen allows glasses to function as a so-called heads-up display, overlaying whatever the viewers is looking at with a digital layer.
Google Glasses, of course, is still in its primary stage, still having not the cellular wireless communications functions, thus it must be used together with mobile phone, accessing to WiFi, 3G/ 4G network via Bluetooth, but all of these never reduce any charm or good impression of Google Glasses.
Eyes are the most direct tool for us to communicate with the outside world, while the glasses are much closer to our eyes than screen, watch, mobile phone and anything else. With Google Glasses, users are much closer to Internet, the images and data of virtual world can be overlaid in the reality, presenting a colorful and rich application scenario.
So far, what you can do with Google Glasses? Video recording, sending text messages, providing translation and navigation, etc. In the meantime, Google is trying to expand this equipment's application scenarios, like published API, acceptance of third-party applications... there will be more and more functions in the future.
Once one fresh thing appears in the world, it not only will arouse our interests, but also provoke some reflective thoughts more or less . Google Glasses also raises some privacy concerns, their unperfect appearance, and the very expensive price...Even so, Google Glasses still are of epoch-making significance, and have the potential to change the world.
In my opinion, Google Glasses are one more amazing invention. 3D renderings
, amazing, allow for unparalled architectural visualization, saving architects and designers a ton of time and money when designing a building, and also allow them to push their creativity to the maximum when creating a concept. Google Glasses, alike 3D renderings, they both result in some seriously cool concepts, from the very realistic, to futuristic, and even ones that seem quite strange. Do you think so?
