关于谷歌眼镜的想法

我非常喜欢Mat Honan的这件作品,“我,Glasshole:Google Glass的一年“:

It is pretty great when you are on the road — as long as you are not around other people, or do not care when they think you’re a knob.

当我在工作时穿着它时,同事有时会称我为混蛋。我在Wired的同事, where we’re bravely facing the future, find it weirdPeople stop by and cyber-bully me at my standing treadmill desk.

你知道得到什么需要吗?专业的nerd to call you a nerd? I do(提示:这是玻璃。)

我不太确定他的结论是面部安装的计算机是不可避免的,尤其是他们一直存在的秘密摄像机:

And here’s the thing I am utterly convinced of: Google Glass and its ilk are comingThey are racing toward us, ready to change society, againYou can make fun of Glass, and the assholes (like me) who wear itBut here’s what I know: The future is on its way, and it is going to be on your face.

但接受肯定是可能的必然。1最终相机会变得足够小,以至于我们无法分辨谁戴着内置式HUD和相机眼镜以及谁只是戴着普通眼镜。

我对谷歌眼镜的问题主要不是关于内置HUD甚至是相机的眼镜的基本概念,而是玻璃的实际设计和执行它的作用是丑陋而笨重而且价格高得离谱对我来说,这就是一切所有现有的智能手表都是一样的 - 问题不是想法,而是实际的执行没有必要首先推出一款产品不好的产品这是一个很酷的实验室演示,他们将其作为成品展示。

也许谷歌将是第一个发布玻璃的东西,它实际上是优雅,美丽,优雅,价格合理但我认为Google今天发布和推广Glass并不会让人更有可能然而,或许,现在发布硬件 - 比它的时间提前几年,虽然它是物理上怪诞和明显突兀 - 将有助于润滑车轮以获得社会认可,当良好 - 有吸引力,不引人注目 - 玻璃类产品确实可用。

与此同时,对我来说,谷歌眼镜是新的平板电脑


  1. 成为明确我个人希望这些东西永远不会得到社会的认可,特别是那些偷偷摸摸的相机But if a future version of Google Glass is indistinguishable from regular glasses, camera and all, how will those of us who object even know who’s wearing them? Cameras are already small enough that determined creeps could be shooting footage surreptitiously in public today with relative ease, and they (the cameras, not the creeps) are going to get smaller every year.

    想象一下,这样的眼镜会如何影响考试的监督骗子可以使用他们的眼镜来阅读问题(OCR)并给他们答案管理所有测试是不切实际的法拉第笼, and for some subjects, like math, you wouldn’t even need network access to facilitate the cheating: just the camera and HUD. ↩︎
