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, 2014 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?

Interesting point on wearable tech. Fit it has done a good job with this by the way: not only with a 1-2 week battery life time but also by sending you an email reminder when your device starts to be low in power. Wearable tech needs to recharge... while you wear it.
