Google Glasses got an incredible reaction on the socials last week. Google+ was flooded with the news, so much so that many broke down in tears due to the lack of cats. But now the excitement’s died down the wise ones have finally made their voices heard.
One of the first videos to be released about Google Glasses was a British parody, which paints a pretty accurate picture of what life might be like with them. KBHD followed with a hype-popping talk explaining the flaws in Google’s video.
Further doubts in the technology itself were raised when Pranav Mistry, an MIT Media Lab researcher, told Wired that the glass wasn’t capable of delivering the rich content seen in the video. What’s most likely is a heads-up-display similar to the Zeal Optics GPS Goggles, which does give wearers an awesome experience, but nothing like what was portrayed in the Google Glasses video.
Google aren’t currently giving the press any more information about the glasses, so we can’t be 100% sure what Larry’s been making locked away in Google X Lab. For all we know the glasses are exactly like the ones in the video. Either way, they’re going to be a massive hit.
