If I had $1500 to buy a Google Glass
So Google Glass went on sale to the public for a one-day super special on April 15th. $1500 I do not have to spare, but if I did here’s what I would do with Google Glass?
5 thing I’d do if I had a Google Glass:
1 – Brag, brag, brag. Google Glass has been the most anticipated new gadget since probably the iPad. So of course I’d show off my new toy on social media, or whoever. People would get impressed, jealous, sad, emotionally mixed, but at the end of the day, I got the Google Glass. (Of course, in reality, I don’t have anything.)
2 – Experiencing the brand new world. Google Glass is a hands-free technology that allows a person to live a simpler life with a blink of an eye. It’s like having a smart phone attached to their head. I’d walk everywhere with it, from the Bronx to Staten Island, and see how it works. I’d send instant messages, take photos. NYC is the perfect city for such a gadget.
3 – Run with Google Glass. I know this is similar to walking. I’m using an app by Nike that helps runners track their course and pace. It’s distracting when I have to take out my smart phone every once in a while to track my time and course. With Google glass, I’m hoping to do all that without having to touch a single thing.
4 – Here’s the coolest feature of the glass. It translates foreign words, which makes traveling to foreign countries less stressful.
5 – Well, I suppose the 5th thing I’d do is use the glasses to dress up like a modern cyborg. Or become a vigilante? Why not? I have everything with the blink of an eye? Maybe not. I haven’t thought that long and hard about it yet, but if I had a Google Glass, I’d sure come up with something fun.
