Google It happened when I first used a PalmOS device. It happened when I first used the BeOS. It happened when I first used an iPhone. And now it's happened by just watching a video - that sense that there's no need to wait for the future, because it's already here. Google has just unveiled its augmented reality glasses, Project Glass, and it will blow you away.

So in the near future, when I walk into a local cafe, instead of seeing people staring into their phones and tablets being all antisocial, I'm gonna see people staring (and talking) into thin air. Kinda creepy.

Not just creepy - infuriatingly irritating. They'd better come up with a better control mechanism than speech. There are many occasions where speaking to your device(s) is not acceptable.

That said, I am very interested in the concept, especially if they make it 3D. But I want control over what the device shares with Big Brother.

This concept has some potential for good, but even more for ill.
