Whilst continuing to read my Sunday New York Times, I came across a piece detailing the upcoming competition to Google Glass, which, as I have written before is in itself, the world’s dumbest product, ‘cos humans were given stereoscopic vision for a reason, Squinting through one eye while you have to keep tapping your stupid head to change screens and walking into traffic is fucking dumb. Plus, you have to Bluetooth or tether it to your phone to connect to the Internet, so you’ll need a bigger battery in both devices. Anyway, according to the NYT, there are now devices coming on the market for niche users. Loved the one for Triathletes. You can check your heart rate while swimming, running and biking, you’ll need your iPhone to connect, plus the extra big battery and the containers to keep everything dry. Shouldn’t add more than 20 pounds while costing you thousands… Or, you could buy a plastic Seiko watch for $20. Naaah, that wouldn’t be cool. There’s also some really ugly “SpaceGlasses” from Meta that has hand-tracking, so you can do a Tom Cruise and type on a virtual keyboard floating in the air… Oh, I almost forgot… To make it work, you have to be tethered by a big fucking cable to your desktop computer. You could always buy an iTrolley!
These things are cutting my fucking ears off!
