Google Glass: Public opinion

Post by hgoel0974 » Tue May 07, 2013 10:05 pm

Well, this may not be the appropriate sub-section but I couldn't find anything suitable.

I am doing research about what you guys think about this thing called Google Glass. You can find out more about it at

So, what is your opinion, is it good or bad? It'd be nice if you could also post a small comment about your opinion but please no flaming :P

I wonder if it has voice recognition, because it would be funny if people/kids kept saying "take a picture" nonstop. :lol:
Personally I wouldn't get one myself, the camera on my iPod works just fine.

Its like any tool. As good or as bad as the person using it.
Of course, being a hidden camera and computer with internet access will cause this to be a common accessory in future crimes.
As such, there is already talk in some areas of banning registered Sex offenders from owning them, and rightfully so.

Have you seen the above link? It has Voice Recognition and believe it or not, it actually does have a take picture command :lol: But on the other hand, it has a cool translation feature and built in GPS and stuff :mrgreen: (I am just so excited with this!)

Yes I read that part, but I didn't read the voice recognition part. :lol:

I want a "Whatever" option. I can buy a smartphone and do exactly the same stuff, and much more without looking like a Blood Dragon cybernerd.
Also, voice control for this is an incredibly bad idea while outside.

lol, voice control for a jetpack is a very bad idea among gamers :lol: :lol: :lol:
Lol, actually I wanted to see if people either agreed with it or disagreed it is just the kind of data I need, I would say that for otherwise, you don't need to vote

Why ask for opinions then if you don't actually want them?

Why something is thought of as good/bad/whatever is far more important than a poll seeking mindless thumbs ups/downs.

The thing is that I just want to know if more people are against it than for, it is because when I was doing research for an article, I saw some things that made me wonder. My aim was only to see if more people like it than hate it, or if more hate it than like.
