Join Doug Winnie for an in-depth discussion in this video Framing Google Glass, part of Introducing Google Glass.
Google glass is a technology that has polarized a lot of people in the tech community and also for the general public. As they see people with Glass. Google glass is a wearable computer that places a screen above your eye that displays information from the internet. I like to think of it as a heads up display for your life. In addition to feeding you information, you can capture the world around you with the built-in camera. And share pictures and video with your friends on social networks. While Glass has some amazing potential issues, there are concerns around privacy and the continued creep of technology into our lives.
Glass is a physical extension of ourselves using technology. You wear it. It is present in what you do. But it is also a potential barrier for how the world sees you. And some see it as culturally damaging, and dehumanizing. Glass has many fans, and many that are concerned about what it means for our future. With that there have been a number of misconceptions about it and my hope in this course is to try and straighten out the facts and answer many common questions that I hear about Glass. Whatever your position is on Glass, you can't deny that it is a technology that has the potential to change how we interact with information.
And the world around us. It is up to us on how we choose to use it to extend what we do in the physical and digital world. So come join me, Doug Winnie, as I introduce you to Google Glass.
