Google glass are taking steps to get even more high tech. The compact frames have on one side a hidden camera, a battery, motion sensors, a wireless connection to reach the Internet, and other electronics. It also contains a small display, which works by having a small light directed into a person’s eye by a thumb-size prism positioned just under his or her right eyebrow.
But how this Google R&D project might become a popular product and a significant contributor to Google’s bottom line remains fuzzy. There are several aspects that Google glasses have to take into consideration.
1.Making Glass affordable to consumers will be the easiest part.
2.It will mostly be a remix of compact electronic components now standard in smartphones, and it should cost about as much as a smartphone to make.
3.Google will have to negotiate challenges in fashion, design, and human relationships that lie outside its previous experience.
4.Persuading large numbers of people to put the device on their faces will be a far bigger challenge. Google will have to reinvent its product to succeed as fashion, not just a computer for your face.
5.It also remains unclear what Glass’s killer app will be. The value to most people is uncertain, since most everything you can do with Glass you can do with a smartphone, and probably more easily. ”It will require throwing out some fundamental conventions of today’s computers to doing it well.” A famous designer suggested.
6.The least predictable part of Google’s task is to make Glass as acceptable to people who aren’t wearing it as it is to those who are. Talking with or even paying attention to other people while information streams directly into your field of view could be challenging.
Google has openly sought help generating more ideas for how to use the product.
