Google Glass
To The
"Future Of Mankind" (Anthony)
Which is to say, wherever we can imagine ourselves going. The Google Glass is currently still in what Google calls the "Explorer" phase of development, and there are voices in the conversation ringing an alarm about what this sort of ubiquitous computing would mean to humanity. Keiichi Matsuda sees the technology that allows images to be projected directly onto the eye in a decidedly dystopic way:
Where Will It Take Us?
What does it do?
Google glass has a number of first-party apps designed to more efficiently meet the increasingly pervasive technological needs of the modern person. There are, of course, third party apps available as well.
What is it?
Google Glass is an optical head-mounted computer display. Variously called "smart eyewear" by Google and "augmented reality glasses," by The Verge, it looks like a pair of glasses without lenses. The computer display rests on the frame over one brow and projects directly into the eyeball.

Some Interesting Third-Party Apps:
And Sebastian Anthony, in a 2012 article in Extreme Tech states the obvious when he says Google Glass "will change everything." In this excellent article, he addresses both the utopian and dystopian possibilities, pointing out, as Matsuda emphasizes in his video, the fact that Google is funded by advertising. To further reinforce this perspective, Forbes just published an article listing Google Glass as a "Business Breakthrough Technology." It would be folly to disregard the money-making aspect of this technology.
While others see this as a desirable stage in human evolution, as we progress from humanity, to transhumanity, to posthumanity -- a stage in our evolution when poverty, illness, and even death can be overcome by virtue of technology (Anissimov).
