Glasses of the Future

According to the Times, Google glasses will be on sale by the end of this year. Yes, the Internet phenomenon is now
moving into accessories. The sci-fi glasses are modeled after Oakley Thumps, which are the definition of futuristic cool… if you’re in the Matrix.  I would prefer them to look like a Lady Gaga invention, but some may argue that Google’s look is more practical. But moving on from their aesthetic value, what do these glasses do? The Android-based shades will “be able to stream information to the wearer’s eyeballs in real time.” They will have a navigation system, a camera and monitor, a location device, and Internet access. Supposedly, you will be able to check into your location from the glasses and share what you are seeing on the web. Pretty cool…and creepy.
