Google Glass Sessions show you the reasons you will want the device

Google Glass Sessions show you the reasons you will want the device
Yes, there is no denying that Google Glass is a cool concept. But even Google admits that it won't be ready for consumers until 2014. Developers still need to start writing for the device, bugs need to be fixed and the software will probably be refined over the next year or so. Even though early videos showed off a day in the life of a Glass user, what can the device REALLY be used for? How useful is Google Glass?

To that end, the Mountain View tech titan is releasing videos called Google Glass Sessions. Not only does  the video show you how Google Glass will make your life easier/happier, it also shows you what Google is doing with the software. The first Session shows how Laetitia Gayn, the wife of a 'Googler' uses Google Glass to share her story about a new born child. Using 'Hangouts', she shares with her family in France a number of the baby's first actions.

This is a good idea by Google because there are many out there who might have unrealistic ideas of what the project is all about. Of course, Google put some of those ideas in their heads in the first place with that initial video. This could also create a long lasting buz for the product that won't be satisfied until its launched.

The screen is the clear thing right in front of their eyes. It works like H.U.D.s on fighter jets.

It's the developer cost. When these actually come to market, they will be cheaper because they'll be mass-produced.

I think this is a great idea...what i dont get is why they are showing everyone so early in its developement so that others can take their idea and create competition for them. they need to keep this under wraps so when they release it it will be groundbreaking. Or at least not release these videos and ideas so far away from the time that it comes out. Cant wait to try one out!!!

They are showing it off now so that developers start getting interested and develop apps and such for the product. The iPhone was kept a secret and it took about a year for Apple to finally allow third party developers to make apps for it.

Also it can build hype for the product so people will want it when it comes out. If the average person can see what it does and all the fun people are having then it won't seem so foreign and 'space age' they can just accept it as normal and adopt it earlier. Think about how long it took TVs and computers to become a household norm, if they can get it out in the public more people would be willing to try it. People are afraid of the unknown.

They already have patents relating to the design and all interfaces the engineers can think of; if they dont already have the patent, chances are it is pending.

I think Google should add another camera on the left side, so it can capture 3D video,, it will be better, and looks crazy

Wow, I could have used when my daughter was born - and even now at 10 months. THANK YOU GOOGLE FOR INNOVATING A PRODUCT. Perhaps a certain Cupertino company can take a hint from this.

as usually, china can easily clone technology. before next year china will produce that crap-glass with price below $100. believe me.

Yes, I believe it - and they will call it CRAP GLASS because for 100.00 it probably will be.

That's so true. Crap it will be for that price but who'd care? It's cheaper and for showing off while walking on the street (not the features just the 'looks') people will buy it. Just like beats headphones. U see them everywhere.

I see this hurting the film industry. Like someone can go to the movies and invite some friends to "hangout" and watch the movie with them..

Wow now this is something that would interest me since we're having our first child this year. Great practical way to sell people on the technology cause at first I just thought it was dumb and not really useful for life. My opinion has changed.

I know what would make this better. Lazers. Death lazers and lazers that can heat things up (tacos).
