The original Google Glass announcement left me stunned. I had never seen anything like it before. To me, it was one of the only product announcements that has come close to the unveiling of the iPhone in 2007.
Just like back then, it was a moment so exciting that I couldn’t resist telling everyone I knew about it. Sure, the Project Glass concept video that was released in April 2012 was exciting, but to see the product become a reality was something else entirely.
Google Glass is not the evolution of the Smartphone. It’s an entirely new product that’s in a class of it’s own. Glass’ purpose is to enhance the world around us, not distract us from it. It augments our reality, bringing the physical and the digital together in perfect harmony. It’s there when we need it and it’s invisible when we don’t.
Everyone I’ve showed it to tells me the same thing. They tell me “It’s like something from the future”. I agree with them. Google Glass is years ahead of its time, but to me it just means that the future is already here, and it’s a future that’s made of Glass.
