Those In Glass Houses…

Google have recently revealed they are working on augmented reality glasses, which will beam smartphone-like features straight to your retinas as you go about your day. Check out the cheesy teaser video

There is predictable excitement from the techosphere as well as a healthy skepticism from the rest of the world. This opinion piece from the Guardian sums it up nicely.

I tend to agree with the skeptics. Google already know a lot about you, but this takes it to a whole new level; where, in an inversion of the
Orwellian nightmare, Big Brother is not just watching you – he is controlling what you watch.

Tin-foil hats at the ready!
