Google exposes the Glass Myth: Glass is not set for primetime

Some of the most prevalent misconceptions regarding the Google Glass have been cleared out. Turns out, the stereotype that all of those who wear Google Glass must be nerds who are wealthy is one that Google is willing to refute. The Web giant revealed that the Google high-tech specs are not exactly set for primetime usage. Google while being interviewed claimed that since Glass appears to be a prototype, the company is doing its best to respond effectively to how users perceive the Google Glass. Around 9 software updates along with 3 hardware updates have been done by Google since the last 11 months. The idea is that when the Glass is launched it is ready for consumer needs and desires to be fulfilled as a technological venture. Just as a prototype created today may seem funny to someone viewing it in the 80’s.

In regards with Glass Explorers, Google reveals how they are not the conventional geeks one may expect rather belong to different kinds of profession such as zookeepers and even brewmasters. And even though the price of the Google Glass appears to be at $1500, the Explorers are not rich people as one may stereotype them as.

Google also dissuaded the notion that Google Glass was rumored to be a spying device, just as cameras were perceived suspiciously be people when they were introduced in the 19th century. Google said that if indeed it was planning to eliminate privacy through the Google Glass then they could have done a much better job at it. There are after all much more advanced cameras in today’s world that can be used as spying devices. Even though Google Glass has been banned in certain bars and cinemas, Google claims that it has not been banned at all places. However Google does agree that it may not be the best idea to wear the Glass in places such as casinos or lockers, but that the same applies to mobile phone as well. Lastly Google destroyed another myth regarding the device that it causes an obstruction in one’s vision by saying that the Glass is positioned above one’s right eye instead of being in front of it.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
