Always Allow Popups


Artist Jonathan McIntosh made a more realistic OR totally silly — depending on your dream vision of the future — version of the Google glasses promo video that came out yesterday. What a living nightmare! Luckily, you could just take the glasses off... if they let you! [via]

I DO NOT WANT THESE GLASSES

Bus Driver Stu Benedict

@Megan Patterson@facebook Google demands that you look as dorky as they did in high school.

@Megan Patterson@facebook right! This is like my living hell. I need time when I am offline or I get fried.

@lobsterhug All the ads, all the time. They are going to find a way to broadcast ads right into your brain.

@Bus Driver Stu Benedict If you already wear glasses (I do), then you'd look extra stupid. I mean, not even going into the constantly being plugged in thng.

Prostitute Robot From The Future

@Megan Patterson@facebook Yes. I wear glasses, the 3d-movie craze is already annoying enough, I have no need for this crap. Also, imagine all those idiots getting into accidents because of these goggles (googles?).

@Megan Patterson@facebook There's also the "talking to yourself about your rich inner fantasy life while you gaze at some indeterminate object" part too.

Prostitute Robot From The Future

@disgruntled co-worker Also, all this technology is starting to turn me into a grumpy old lady ("look at all these stupid assholes and their gadgets").

@Bus Driver Stu Benedict I am already super weirded out when people are doing this with bluetooth.

wee_ramekin

@all Yeah, I heard about his on NPR this morning (oh John Moe!) and was like

DO NOT WANT

.

Also, I love that all the comments on this article so far are in one thread. I vote we keep it that way!

Prostitute Robot From The Future

@Megan Patterson@facebook Omg, yes! For a long time, I kept thinking I had a sixth sense for picking out the crazy people to stand/sit next to in public transport.

SuperGogo

Yes, these goggles are insane and Big Brother and such, but there would be one definite bonus: people who are going to text or browse while on the go anyway could at least watch where they're going!

@Megan Patterson@facebook When I first moved to the city, I used to enjoy a rousing game of Bluetooth or Batshit?

HeyThatsMyBike

@SuperGogo But it would be so weird to be walking along and see all these people watching where they're going and then suddenly getting a message and like crossing their eyes and changing their stride! ACK!

Megasus

@SuperGogo Yeah I don't think it's any easy to use this and pay attention to where you're going.

Argh, is this the future of Google Glass? :-)@n

Statham

This is crazy 1984 to me. It's bad enough that it'd be pretty easy to find out what I do when I'm on the computer, but with this sort of thing, google would be able to tell what I'm doing when I'm awake? F that noise.

Blackwatch Plaid

This made me think of They Live, which made me think of how much I hate Shepard Fairey, which made me think of Andre the Giant, which made me think of the Princess Bride.

In conclusion, I really should rewatch that movie soon.

GOOGLE GOGGLES, GOOGLE GOGGLES, ONE OF US, ONE OF US

@jen325 OMG, how does this not have any upvotes?

WE ACCEPT HER, WE ACCEPT HER, ONE OF US, ONE OF US

@Bitterblue I didn't expect anyone to notice because I didn't post it until the next day, so YAY!
