Your lifestyle, your quirk
Yesterday Google entered the eyewear business, or so we thought. Google announced their "secret project," Project Glass! Project Glass is their augmented reality system that will allow you to see Google data in real life, meaning if you bring up a map, you will see the map ahead of you hovering in the air, or see status updates and messages as they come in.
Now this is all a concept right now, but Google is hard at work trying to make this a reality. The big question is, will we wear these glasses or are they just for the technically trendy? Take a look for yourself at these images provided by google and think, "Will I actually wear these?" Personally, are they cool?
Undoubtedly yes! They would need a little tweaking, but when they are ready for mass market, I can't imagine the cool factor being anything less than off the charts. First, they look futuristic as anything; second, the functionality they will offer will greatly enhance our lives.
After you watch the video below, think to yourself, how would these change your life? Think about walking to work everyday and seeing info about a historic location you didn't even know about. That walk now has new meaning in your life! Or maybe you are looking for a place to eat, but before you go in, you see a bad review pop up! Oh my, several of your friends got sick at that spot? I can't afford to get sick now, thanks!
I really think this technology will get more and more people out exploring the world around them. Information brings a whole new meaning to everything, and you know what they say: "Knowing is half the battle!"
Now, your thoughts on this may differ, you may think they are ugly and that's OK. If you want to voice your opinion, Google wants to hear it. Go to their Project Glass page, add them to your circle and let them know!

The Google team released a concept video to give us more of an idea of what it may be like "One Day." You can see the video below:
