Google's augmented reality glasses : now officially "Project Glass"

Video gives an interesting idea of what this product could be in a user's daily routine.


Good for them they didn't release this on April 1st: so awesome, it could have easily be seen as a prank...

Finally a smartwatch that looks smart?

Finally a smartwatch that looks smart? | Gadgets I lust for | Scoop.it

Gábor Balogh is a freelance designer from Hungary who, like many of us, wants an attractive, watch-like watch that just happens to be smart. The difference between Balogh and the rest of us is he went ahead and designed an interface he believes could enable regular watch designs to include a full bevy of smart features.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

There's still a lot to invent in terms of UX design for smartwatches. This design concept is interesting as it brings some ideas of what the use cases could be.

Is Google losing its biggest fan on Google Glass?

Is Google losing its biggest fan on Google Glass? | Gadgets I lust for | Scoop.it

"Context."

Larry Page is on stage at TED right now. I'm at home watching.
He is not wearing Google Glass.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Excellent rant by Robert Scoble on Google Glass. That product is already getting old without having even been launched and lack of CEO support is definitely worrying. I've been skeptical on this project since I first heard of it 2 years ago: primarily because I had doubts about Google being the right company to bring that change. 


As a gadget nerd, I's still love to be proven wrong though.

Emmanuel HAVET's curator insight, March 21, 11:32 AM

Bien que certains soient sceptiques sur la disponibilité du grand public faute de support suffisant interne et/ou externe, ce projet est formidable pour :

- Démontrer les freins à l'adoption

- Démontrer les soucis de sécurité et leur impact éventuel

- Donner à Google une incroyable avance sur les OS IoT (enfin, formidable, c'est relatif)

- Projeter les usages, bien au delà du grand public, car c'est probablement ailleurs qu'est le potentiel économique.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:
So now you don't have to pile up contacts and glasses. Good move of course and quite a logical one given the target market but still something I feel uneasy with. It took me ages to free myself from glasses thanks to laser surgery. Not sure I want to lose that freedom again.

I've used Paper by 53 to doodle and it grew on me. I now try to draw when I travel or have spare time (not too often unfortunately...).

Same here! Still using my Bamboo (which I like a lot though) but I'm still hesitating between this one (53), the Procreate or anything else that could match my wishes/needs... Most important criteria to me is of course having only one pen for most of my different usages... Not one pen by App. ;)
David Villalobos's curator insight, February 5, 11:17 PM

After watching the video and looking at the specs for this stylus, i have to say i'm pretty impressed by how it looks alone. I have been using my Bamboo tablet and stylus for about a year and a half and its great and all but it doesn't feel natural to me. The stylus just doesn't feel like it was designed for an artist. This stylus, on the other hand, seems like it was designed just for me and thats something to be excited about  since it is JUST a stylus. I've been meaning to buy a new tablet+stylus so maybe i'll check this out.

Ok glass, is music really the killer app you're looking for? | Gadgets I lust for | Scoop.it
Glass can now be used to search for songs, scan through saved playlists and listen to music in high fidelity.
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Google is still trying to explore a whole range of applications for Google Glass.


Not clear to me whether some killer apps have emerged yet. Music seems a long shot to me as (i) it's already massively covered by smartphones, iPods, etc... (ii) it's by definition not so much visual (iii) it requires additional earbuds that will make the whole set up cumbersome.


Or am I missing anything?

Google glass can obviously give us a new way of life. Like others wearable device, Google glass uses technology to help us to deal with working and daily life information easier, although it is a little gross than a normal glass currently. 

Tony Curmudgeon O'seland's curator insight, March 27, 12:40 PM

This makes me wonder if the digitization of graphic literature will further degrade the field.  Physical ownership of graphic literature has become a vague concept these days, and if I read the buyers agreements on digital copies, you don't ever actually own the copy, you get to view it a set number of times.  While these glasses may make being a Hipster seem cool, do they actually serve a purpose for those who read, or are they just another gimmick to sell tech?

"It's not the consumers' job to know what they want" but 4 to 1 early adopters would pick smart watches over glasses

"It's not the consumers' job to know what they want" but 4 to 1 early adopters would pick smart watches over glasses | Gadgets I lust for | Scoop.it

By Eric Newcomer - One of the most important questions about the future of computing is this: wrist or face? Google has been trumpeting its Glass devices, which can take photos and run applications like Facebook and Twitter on a small screen within eyesight. Apple, which is working on a secret smartwatch, has been publicly pushing the case for the wrist.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Of course the big caveat of this study is that it's very hard for consumers to project themselves using new devices they haven't discovered yet. The story of the iPad is a good example of that. But it's an interesting data point in the coming glass vs watch battle in the Apple / Google war.

More on the Bose SoundTouch that others have tried to do, it's good to see that Bose made a stab at this, it is more likely going to be successful in getting adoption / acceptance of the wireless music throughout the home than others due to the fact that it's married to an actual product that people already like.....One of the strategies for successful adoption a new tech (when attempting to move up the S-curve of adoption) is to marry it with another technology that is already being accepted by the marketplace.
