There is a LOT to be said in examining comments around this sensitive subject. Definitely check out our previous podcast at www.ldcoleman.com/radio to get the full scoop!
It's all through the tech press. A London-based group just been created and has named itself and their movement "Stop the Cyborgs", in an effort to raise awareness around Google's newest prototype Google Glass.Google Glass is an augmented reality device that is essentially a pair of eyeglass frames with a totally functioning computer within the lenses. The device is capable of taking pictures and video, giving directions, searching the web, and sending messages. It also has a functioning camera that films hand-free. While it may sound like a great product, "Stop the Cyborgs" group believes that if the product becomes as popular as the smart phone that our extremely technologically driven society will become increasingly more intrusive, with people able to film and capture whatever, whenever. "Stop the Cyborgs" wants to ensure that even in an increasingly technologically savvy world, that we still are able to retain our privacy as human beings. A Seattle cafe has already banned the product. What say you? Team Google Glass or Team Privacy?
Crazy paranoid nutters!...If somebody wanted to record you (or 'invade' your privacy)...would they use something so obvious as Glass?!...Good thing the sane establishments wouldn't be going through with this foolishness.
If only we can get to the point where we don't have to use our brains at all. The glasses could translate body language and facial expressions to convey to us others emotions and then display a proper response from a database of millions of greeting card poems and witty sayings...The future will be awesome...
Seems like a lot of people are still getting used to the idea because there weren't a ton of comments on this, as expected. But the ones that are there all pretty much have the same vibe. Still looks like we are in the early days of 3D on the computer and chilliing at home.
You Tube announces that it will automatically convert 1080p video directly into 3D. The 3D glasses will still be required for viewing.
