The first time around, Google Glass wasn’t exactly a runaway hit. But the technology behind it will certainly be improved to the point where it can eventually be integrated into a regular pair of glasses. And for when that day gets here, there’s now a novel and subtle way to navigate your wearable display using the belt around your waist.
Google Glass is dead. In its current form, at least, the augmented-reality specs will no longer be sold to developers, early adopters and enthusiasts — and depending on how stupid you think Google Glass is, this news will either disappoint you or make you very happy.
A recent Reuters report makes a fairly sound case for the demise of Google Glass, which is obviously giving headline writers across the internet the opportunity to label it as This Generation’s Segway. But that’s far too important a title to give away without a long discussion and the posting of many, many GIFs of people falling off Segways. In the name of science, of course.
By this stage, Google Glass has been around in its kinda-beta kinda-on-sale format for a solid 18 months, and the internet is awash with more reviews than you can probably tolerate. But it’s still interesting to see wizard filmmaker Casey Neistat’s opinion on everyone’s favourite face computer, especially when the entire thing is filmed with Glass itself.
