Google Glass – ‘the view from up here’ #ifihadglass

YouTube: Google Glass

Google have released this video in an attempt to try and show how their Google Glass will work. Obviously we’re talking about technology that will rely heavily on good network signal, which is always very dicey whenever I need one to check emails, calendar, directions, etc. when I’m 0ut-and-about. With the right development of technology and backing software (apps?) this could be utilised in classroom environments to enhance learning materials and the ability for students to create and share their own experiences, all based around a chosen topic, subject, purpose?

What do you think – is there scope and future for this? As a wearer of glasses already I don’t relish the idea of trying to wear two pairs at the same time, but if it is something that could retro fitted to my existing frames … could be good!
