10 Questions About Project Glass

Today, Google announced its new futuristic project from the internal Google[X] team - Project Glass. You can read more over at Google’s official Google+ page, where they company is also sharing a video. The Verge and The New York Times are breaking down the interesting bits from today’s news.

As I said, I’m not sure how I feel about Project Glass yet. Specifically, I’ve been reading about the augmented reality glasses, asking myself some questions.

Right now, I have these questions. I’m torn between “completely freaked out” and “exciting, revolutionary possibility” when I think about Project Glass, and I’m curious to see how development will play out following users’ input. One thing, I believe, is certain: Project Glass will either fail big time – because the public is not ready, the device will turn out to be a technical flop, or simply because Google will change its mind – or succeed in creating a whole new market, redefining wearable technology in the process.

Today, the Internet is going crazy speculating about Project Glass, and rightfully so. What Google is showing seems impossible, and not just from a technical perspective: it seems unlikely that the product from that video is working that well using today’s technologies. But still, Project Glass is real and, according to Google, it’s already being tested out in the real world. So we wait.
