There’s been a lot of chatter about how the $1,500 hardware seems to be meant for only early adopters or the elite — otherwise known as “Glassholes” — who aren’t worried about the price or privacy issues with Glass.
But this video shows how useful the specs can be for everyday people, not just those skydiving and riding in hot air balloons. The Glass employees search for things like flight information, the score to last night’s baseball game, Prince’s real name, translations, and Ryan Gosling’s girlfriend. The voice-recognition is pretty remarkable.
While it will be cool to read the New York Times or start Tweeting from your Glass, the search capabilities certainly seem like the most practical application for Google’s newest hardware. Does this video make you want Glass more?
