Project Glass

I’m torn. On one hand, this is complete vaporware. Catchy little videos with totally unfeasible technology are Microsoft’s schtick, and we all know how that turns out. I definitely don’t want Google serving me location-based ads everywhere I go, and the glasses look ridiculous:

On the other hand, it’s the stuff of every sci-fi fan’s dreams. Perhaps John Gruber said it best a couple months ago:

My first thought was to laugh, but, hey, at this point, let’s give Google the benefit of the doubt and hope these things are actually useful and cool. We’re not going to be tapping on 3 to 5 inch pieces of glass for the entire future of mobile computing. Something’s got to come next. Maybe heads-up displays are next.

Hard to say.
