If That Ad For Google Glasses Were Honest


Yesterday, Cajun Boy introduced us to Google Glasses, the Google-produced video about their once-secret Project Glass. It’s the company’s foray into wearable computers. The glasses aren’t for sale yet, and almost certainly don’t work as seamlessly as the video portrays, but Google will be testing them in public.

Tom Scott has decided to test out these augmented reality glasses in his parody, Google Glasses: A New Way to Hurt Yourself. It is exactly what the title suggests, and probably far more accurate than the original video. It’s also surprisingly prescient:

After the police request his lifelog, a message should pop up from Eric Schmidt: “If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.” [calebsouthern]

BURN. In your face, Goog– wait, hold up, the police are at the door. Talk to you guys in five to ten.
