Are we going to wear those things in the future? I am afraid that will be the case! Google Glass, a sort of wearable computer mounted as a pair of glasses lets you communicate with the internet by vocal commands! Google tried very hard to make the object fashionable, but now they have expanded the joy of owning such a piece of technology: Google Glass allows you to interact with music, let you search for songs, scan through saved playlists and especially listen to music in high fidelity!
The glasses have a small computer screen above the right eye (how disturbing and how dangerous when people are going to wear those while driving) and you can voice-command the thing by saying ’take a picture’, ‘search for a term’, and now ‘listen to’… and finally the glasses will stream the song via Google’s Play, that I have never used – who can keep up with all these apps?
‘With these new features, we’re now building a great music experience on Glass, whether you’re a classical music professor, an acclaimed sound engineer and hip-hop producer, or someone who wants to listen to their favorite tunes anytime, anywhere’, said Ed Sanders, the director of marketing for Google Glass, but I will need much more to be convinced to spend $ 1,500 for a pair.
This music-connected feature is supposed to be a good marketing tool to launch the new technology, and other music services beside Google’s own are planning to be added in the future.
Why do we need this when everyone is using an iPhone to stream music with Spotify or Pandora? The only plus is that we don’t have to stare and interact with our fingers? Instead we will have this small screen and we will talk to ourselves like crazy zombies constantly squinting. But wait until you see this promo video
The video shows Young Guru (record producer and D.J. who has worked with Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Rihanna and Ludacris) using the eyewear to order food in Spanish, identify the song played in the restaurant, streaming the same song while walking out of the place and tracking down a vinyl record of the song!
‘It’s an immense timesaver, and a great tool to make the world that much cooler, and realize some of the dreams we had as kids, said Young Guru in an interview, ‘For all of us who grew up watching ‘Star Trek, this is sort of the beginning of the holodeck’.
It certainly looks that way, it’s really impressive but is this too much?
