Google Glasses

Our generation has given the age of technology an adrenaline shot, everyday it seems like some better, faster version of everyday items is being created to make our lives even more convenient .Just years ago touch screen technology was released and was considered monumental now this technology is standard with most cellular phones , mp3 players, laptops and even televisions now.

Google has created glasses that do just that. These glasses entitled the "Google glass" when worn enable the user to access a variety of functions through speech commands.

Google began the creation of the Glass in 2005 and even though these glasses have quite some time until they will be ready for the consumer market I feel that they will revolutionize our everyday lives once perfected. I honestly do not believe these glasses will have any real political or economical impact due to the fact they will be incredibly expensive(around $1,500)but I do foresee the significant impact it shall have on society and education. In the area of education these glasses are going to connect the user to learning in ways text books and boring lectures never could. By being able to virtually see what that history professor was lecturing about or read a...
