I’m very glad that Patrick was able to show me Google Glass. It’s an amazing display of innovation and a prime example of why investing in infrastructure like the NBN is so important – if this is where we are now, what’s next?

Actually wearing the glasses is a remarkable experience – all this information right before your eyes responding to voice commands.

Patrick was saying how good it will be not having to pull your phone out of your pocket, but I’m very excited at the prospect of not having to dig through my handbag every time the phone rings!
