Forget Glass; Google wants to plant Android right in your eye
posted by Alan F. / May 03, 2016, 11:33 PM
Google doesn't mention Android by name in the patent, but what else would be running this invasive invention? Is this the final step in the evolution of the smartphone, the tablet and the wearable? Would people allow themselves to have this device inserted into their eyes? Obviously this is quite a number of years away from being available.
The patent was filed October 24th, 2014 in the name of Andrew Jason Conrad, the head of Life Sciences at Google. You can view some images from the application by clicking on the slideshow below.

Wow, Google became evil. Is this a part of the new world order?

#EyePhone. Futurama FTW!! "You can ignore your friends, stalk your ex, download porn on a crowded bus, even check your email while getting hit by a train." It's $500, you have no choice in carrier, the battery can't hold a charge, the reception isn't very good... SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!!! This really is a joke. I'll keep my phone in my pocket, thank you very much.

Whether this is a joke or not - will have to see.. but if eveyone in the past threw evertyhing that wasn't perfect with the first try - we would probably still be inventing the wheel... (the first one would have been too heavy)

Guys, we all made jokes when Google bought Nest, that you'll get ads on your thermostat - but that never happened... This type of tech - we all know it's going to get there - whether you like it or not, bio-metrics are already huge part of OUR lives - our phones count our steps, sleeping habits, and if you wish can collect your vitals to provide researchers better data to collaborate cures for parkinsons (for example)... As much as an Apple fan I am, and would love to take a jab at google and their advertising schemes - I absolutely doubt that google is going to screw something like this up just to push more ads...

Now Google wants to give everyone cancer of the eye? Just no. Make Android run on contacts and maybe we will talk. I can't even imagine having a doctor come near my eye. That sounds painful. One accident and you could be blinded for life. No thanks. We don't need technology planted in our body. Good Luck with this patent. Even if you when it, unless you are paying millions of dollars for a human to test it for you, I don't want to be your living "ANDROID"

Imagine walking around and everywhere you look is popup bubbles of information with phone numbers, email addresses, waiting times and distances. AR finally becomes reality. So instead of injecting this in my eye, just give me a pair of prescription glasses with this on the lens. No weird Google Glass, just normal glasses with an Android lens built in.
