At the CES show last week, I blogged about the introduction of Goggles that allow you to video whilst ski-ing downhill for example and live streaming it to your friends. (http://streamabout.blogspot.ie/2013/01/video-glasses-mark-2-launched-this-week.html)
And Instagram had a go at 'Instaglasses' (http://streamabout.blogspot.ie/2012/07/instaglasses-from-instagram-this-has.html). Google's launch last year is here (http://streamabout.blogspot.ie/2012/04/google-goggles-apple-fiddles.html)
Google have just announced a big session around what they call 'Google Glass' (as distinct from what we know as "Google Googles"). They're holding a 'Glass foundry' this month, to introduce developers to the concept and to start to build the platform.
The Glasses, which they demonstrated last year, have the option to record video, get weather updates and see messages so already they've achieved a level of good sophistication. Now they're taking it further.
It's early development days but this marks a real serious input by Google into developing a better product and platform because they....eh, see the light. They know there's a good business model here.
It's something every one of our kids will have.
I can see it now.
