For those of you that really want one and haven’t bought a Google Glass yet they’re actually in stock on [blink’s website] for KD 575, that’s a lot of money. You can read my thoughts about Google Glass after I got my hands on one [here]. Google has a Google Glass account on instagram that they post cool stuff on.
Google Glass is currently undergoing development by the Dubai Police Smart Services Department. Dubai police force plan to use Google Glass to issue fines on the spot as well as identify vehicles, which I think is a great and practical idea. I’m still not sure whether I’m getting one myself.[Source]
I was approached by someone from GDG Kuwait who asked me if I was interested in checking out the Google Glass he had in a small black bag. Of course I said yes and started playing around with its features. What I really wanted to know was whether it was worth KD 450. The Google Glass screen is pretty big, it’s equivalent to a 25 inch high-definition screen.
No one can see what you see on the screen unless they really get up close. The way you take a video or photo is very impressive, you just ask it to take a photo “Okay Glass, take a picture”. If you need to take a photo is a quiet area you just wink. Glass has live step by step navigation which is great since you won’t be using any of your hands.
Google Glass runs on Android and already has a decent amount of apps available. The battery life was the only down side, it lasts an hour but because it’s only on when you give it a command or so then goes on stand-by it should give you a day worth of battery life.
I thought there was no way to physically navigate but there is, you swype your finger while touching Google Glass to navigate the menu or a gallery; that came in handy. I think it’s worth the money, just not right now. Wait for the final product.
Looks like someone managed to get ahold of a Google Glass, I think he bought one off of eBay. He’s posting videos on his instagram on unique features and what are the best aspects of Google Glass to use in Kuwait. I’m still not sure if I’m getting one, but I’ll definitely grab one for review.
Everyone has been talking about Google’s ground breaking technology ever since they released their Project Glass video. I really didn’t buy the whole idea, people use to make fun about this when Futurama did a similar thing they called the eyePhone. I guess it’s a new technology that will force you to watch advertisements while doing everything.
On a more comical note, this is what would happen if Microsoft came up with those glasses:
Update: Just like a assumed, someone has already made a video showing what Google Glasses will look like was ads.[Source]
