Technology freaks me out, like truly terrifies me sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I think the advancements we take in the tech world each day are amazing and innovative. They show just how much humans (and machines, thus the terrifying part) are capable of. The idea that machines and computers can do just about anything these days just makes me think of War of the Worlds and all those movies about the machines taking over, and humans being completely defeated and defenseless. It could happen, right guys? Technology is insanely cool, but also horrifies to my very soul. I want my cassette tapes back.
In the spirit of insane tech advancements, yesterday Google revealed their newest innovation that takes computers and smart phones to an entirely new level of awesome. They have come to call this new gadget Project Glass. Project Glass is a pair of augmented reality glasses that seek to provide users real-time information right in front of their eyes. Texts, video chats, maps, weather, etc. are literally right in front of your eyes. There is one point during the demo video where the guy with the glasses actually tracks his friend and knows exactly how many feet is away from where they were supposed to meet.
That is just so scary and stalker-esque. I have so many questions about this Project Glass hoopla, and I am wondering how anyone could avoid an awkward moment whole wearing these bad boys that literally track your very move while wearing them.
