I F**king love thinking about the future. I want to time travel. I want to know what is going to be around tomorrow, today. I read every book I can about what society can or might be like in the future, good or bad. Couple favorites of recent years – “Ready Player One” and “The Dog Stars.” It’s rare to me that we get a moment where you REALLY feel like the future is happening now. You know, its always more of a gradual thing. Email was a rather slow roll into ubiquity. BUT it was the damn future in an instant.
Google Glass – While I have heard about these things for a while now and even saw a video of the CEO chillin in a train wearing a pair, this is the first real tangible video showing us what the possibilities are. The fact that you will look like a total nerd wearing them will have no bearing on people’s desire to do so. I think using a device like this will be as normal as staring down into a smart phone is now. So, I post this video if you haven’t seen it yet.
