I've offered up my body to xda developers for an experiment codenamed :CUPCAKE SPRINKLES. My brain will serve as the first android augmented and interactive virtual and real reality. Of course, Motorola found out post-offering so the only way it's active right now is with an Atrix 2 plugged up my ass which is uncomfortable and , quite honestly, just not practical. But, with the atrix 2 in my ass, the google goggle function is pretty spot on except for seeing prices over a few womens heads on Bourbon St. during Mardi Gras. It turned out they were hookers and google had linked me into the N.O.P.D. database. I was wasted at the time. I had thought I was hallucinating. Google nostrils has proved to be an epic failure. I don't want to know the prices of the contents of that chick's fart and this guy's vomit.

It depends on the appearance. If it looks like the Virtualboy (Best gaming device ever, but not portable :( ), then no way. If, however, they're nearly indistinguishable from regular shades, I'll be all over it for the 300-400 price range. $6 is a bit much for something less than a tablet and ugly as sin. I'd be more interested in a glasses device that interfaces with the phone device in my pocket, which is more seamlessly integrated with the tablet device in my bag, but of course no one has managed to conceive of this level of integration yet.

Google needs to stop stealing apple's ideas.

Companies are good for buying out or taking someone's ideas. Apple, Microsoft and et cetera own patents to ideas they did NOT invent. Fanboys need to stop thinking their favorite company came up whatever first when they actually do not know who did themselves. F.T.W., software patents are a complete waste and should be fully abolished.

Apple needs to stop thinking they came up with the idea for everything.

Augmented Reality is the future!!!! Yes!!!! I've wanted that since I saw Sailor Mercury's visor and pocket computer in Sailor Moon... About time!!!!

Basically the updated "walkman" (or perhaps watchman ;-) , wonder if they will go with umbilical power and processing to keep the headset comfortable. Likely first will be an accessory for Moto's watch sized unit or something similar that would strap into a bicep band and share heart rate, lap time and navigation data for lots of athletes and explorers out there. Wait till it's bundled to face recognition allowing a far savvier pre-crime cell web than the Dark night had. Honestly though will just be for fringe adopters until immersive, 3-D stereoscopic displays making for discreet and enhanced viewing of the nets best.

I'd surely shell out hundreds just to have Google plant a tracking device up my ass for the sake of advertising dollars.

How about "Fuck Google?" How's that for advanced technology?

There's a name for that...it's called: a Googleoscopy

Just imagine looking down a busy street and little info balloons pop up wherever you see a restaurant, or a sporting goods store or what ever your continued patronage to Google has told them you're interested in.

Zoandar

And in each of those ballons is a streaming COMMERCIAL. Now you are seeing the real intent behind the product.

cappo

Yes my very own scouter!! I can finally see if there is anyone out there with a power level of over 9000!!!

I'm wanting something with a see-through lense that preserves your binocular, depth of field. I heard that the one lense is opaque, not see-thru. So the data won't 'float' in your field of vision.

My ultimate use would be as a 'heads-up' display for sport-riding.
Imagine...speed/gearing/RPM all instantly accessed. With the right algorythms/camera/hardware, it could predict/project potential obstacles, best line, braking points, way-points....

RUSENSITIVESWEETNESS

Yeah. You wouldn't even need your brain any more. How great would that be.

I could run for Congress!

Could be used for an awesome video game but played in actual cities and environments......

Join the Army. Get all the video game you can handle. They even have real explosions. No need for PhysX.

Hey.That_Dude

NOOOOOO! i want 90% transparent OLED screens in BOTH eyes!

Otherwise this sound interesting. I'd honestly try these.

avatar

It's way too early to get excited. Besides, do you really want Google to be riding around on your glasses, recording every aspect of your every moment?

avatar

Slurpy

They already do it with my phone. Nothing new.

Well, I suppose that would be better than drugs (prescription or otherwise) being #1.

Why? The HUD would be focused on the glass of the lens, not into your eye. Also it would be a visable frequencies which are normal for your eye.
Still, something to be wary of I guess.

avatar

Baer

If they can be made in my prescription, I will be at the front of the line. That is assuming there is no catch, no need to put Google Chrome on my computer for example.
As for Apple being first. They were not first with MP3 players, they just had the neatest design when they came out. The same with the tablet. They caught everyone by suprise with excellent design (not necessarily performance) that is probibally not going to happen again.

Sorry, should have said, "the first one anyone actually bought" :)

duuuuuuuude

Yes, the true beginning of augmented reality is (almost) upon us! I hate to say it, but I seriously thought that Apple would be the first up to bat with something like this, after beating everyone to market with the iPod, iPhone and iPad. The iEye was just around the corner, I figured. Glad to see Google on it.

Far more of a tool than a toy, this is the game changer I've been lusting after.

avatar

Supall

I want this for Christmas! If they're polarized, I've just found a cool new toy to show off. >.>

avatar

Marthian

Hm, I'm kind of interested. It'd be cool if it had a zoom in function too, there is some things I really want to see but are far away, not easily accessable, or some other thing.

avatar

Hey.That_Dude

They have LCD glasses that are made to switch their Diopter rating so that you can read up close. I can only assume they will do the same for distance viewing in the future.

You want the future of gaming? Combine these with a next gen smartphone to provide muscle and connectivity, mix in AR technology, and a paintball esthetic...

Instant massively multiplayer gaming set in the real world, but with access to fictional weapons, tools, and data. I'm addicted to the concept already and it doesn't exist yet. lol

Forget VR gaming, AR gaming is the future.
