The great difference to the cell phone is therefore no technical, but a social, namely the far-reaching uncertainty of use for other people. From there also the unrest comes, which is observable in the US American media landscape away from the nerd enthusiasm. The combination of invisibility and new technology leads almost automatically to fear and irrationality. Read more:

Yesterday we had 2013 Mai 06 (2) – Google Glass: Photo by wink and today I read again something about this subject:

The man machine: Google’s negligent glass campaign

Google’s data spectacles change everything: When the Glass technology arrives, no-one escapes anymore the net – also none-users are affected.

A term for people who wear the coming augmented reality spectacles with the name Google Glass: glasshole. The name which is just as obvious as shrewd carries rather weight on the introduction of these specs, which insert a screen into the field of vision and have camera and microphone.

So as scant twenty years before cell phone users were first felt in public as asocial troublemakers, the constant distribution of this insult in the English speaking world refers to a potentially society changing and dividing technology. Because to be able to be a public annoyance above an outrage straw fire a technology must somehow appear to be relevant for most of the people.

The spectacles from Google are the first great forerunner of this mix, and in the term glasshole is the feeling of inescapability weaved in for everyone who faces a glass user. The camera in the specs can take photos by a wink, the recording of a video is as simple and possibly hardly noticeable.

Augmented reality lets the net spill out of the device into the world.

The great difference to the cell phone is therefore no technical, but a social, namely the far-reaching uncertainty of use for other people. From there also the unrest comes, which is observable in the US American media landscape away from the nerd enthusiasm. The combination of invisibility and new technology leads almost automatically to fear and irrationality. Nobody can be reproached for being afraid of the specs, even if the further development lying behind it appears to be unavoidable. An own, digital and real mixed world – net space, as one could call augmented reality, when this slogan bores one stiff after the 234th use.
