Another light-hearted video pokes fun at Google's Project Glass
Google’s Project Glass unveiling has already inspired a series of parodies. We brought you one such video earlier today, which remixed current Google ads into their demo video. Here is another short video, which raises the specter of privacy issues that could arise from improper use, or poor design.

We find the real project pretty inspiring; we don’t really think Google would share your information with the police (as shown in this video, and the whole point of only covering one eye is to allow you to navigate the real world while using Google’s HUD glasses, but that didn’t make us laugh any less at the video below.

Warning, some of the language is NSFW for strict work environments, so exercise caution!

Oh come on!
Google won't make it terrible, but the concept is odd, so people don't like it.
We don't know if it will be successful (Google has launched many "failures") but there is no need to hate on it like this.

Just enjoy a laugh and don't read anything serious into it - that's exactly why we stated that we don't buy into this as a serious criticism.

I agree taco. you may not agree with me i think the concept is a different idea that would be cool to have just to say i have it.

I'm an android lover but the video is funny and made me chuckle a good bit. It's similar to the ones that poke fun at apple.

I wasn't thinking about Apple at all while watching this. In fact, I thought it was perfectly appropriate for Google, considering how much they care about marketing/advertising.

In the world of marketing, it is all about data and targeted advertising. This commercial is funny, yet has very realistic implications on the value of this product to a marketing company like Google. Seriously, marketing companies sit behind their awesome products that users love, collecting heaps of data while tapping their fingers together and uttering "excellent" like Mr. Burns.
