Wednesday Poll: Are you Interested in the Google and Android Powered Glasses?

HTC just got done unveiling the HTC EVO 4G LTE, which is a nice phone and all, but isn’t the story of the day clearly the Google[x] project known as “Project Glass?” We are talking glasses that can do everything your smartphone does, but right in front of you eyes. Full voice integration, a camera for snapping life, video chatting, social check-ins, responding to texts, and more are all featured in their video preview of what the technology “could” look like. They even mocked up some renders of the glasses themselves for all of us to geek out on.

But really though, are you interested? If Google released these for X-mas, would you buy it? Is this too Minority Report? Or is that exactly what makes it so awesome to imagine?

    Didn’t I see these in the Anime “Appleseed: Ex Machina”?

  • teejaycard

    how are those who wear glasses already supposed to be wearing these thing? 

  • Yo

    cool technology, but no. 

  • cransr

    The one thing I can’t help but notice after rewatching the video is the A.I. that is definitely working in the background of everything that is going on. I feel like this could be the first hint at what could potentially blow siri out of the water. But if google is smart, they will get facebook on board with them so apple can’t.

    The camera would have to be at least HTC like in quality and the frame shouldn’t have to look like that in order for me to consider buying it

  • br_hermon

    I voted “maybe” but honestly… I can’t see wearing these things, at least in their current gawdy state. Actually what I am more excited about is the potential these have for other uses. Can you imagine this same kind of tech incorporated into the windshield of a car? Navigation displayed as an overlay? Awesome! I also read somewhere where this tech could find its way into contact lenses. I could see terrific use of this tech in the law enforcement industry  / armed services as well. This could be the next big modder / community driven device following in the same footsteps as the Kinect.
    Am I excited about the glasses? Meh… Am I super excited about the potential this project could have in numerous implementations? Most definitely!

    Enable text to speech and vice versa, problem solved. Texts will become like short phone calls in a way.
