Google Glass makes Time's best inventions list of 2012
posted by Alan F. / Nov 07, 2012, 12:49 AM
the Google Glass Explorer Edition was open for pre-orders from developers this past summer at a price of $1,500 and is supposed to be delivered early next year. You might recall Google Glass Sessions which was supposed to be a series of videos showing how useful the device really is. Only one video was released which showed the wife of a Google employee share the antics of her baby with relatives in France.
So what will Google Glass really do for us? We might not know for sure until later next year. Still, the editors at Time Magazine were so impressed by the videos below, that they called Google Glass one of the best inventions of 2012. Congratulations to those at Google who worked on the project and we hope that the vision of the device as displayed in the first videos eventually comes to fruition.

Actually, yes it is. It's like the iPad in this case. Microsoft is the first company to create a functional tablet, but business never really took off until the first generation iPad was released. There hasn't been an android tablet before the iPad or any tablet that had an OS optimised for a tablet experience(not that iOS is an "optimal" tablet OS, but it basically created the genre". Heck by that time wikipedia categorised it as a PC. Not that it isn't but it did not fit into any suitable or popular sub-category at the time. There's no denying that the first "phablet" is the Dell Streak 5, but it had way too many compromises to actually create the category that it ultimately belonged to.

i'm not a google fan, and most definitely NOT an apple fan, and most of the phones I had in the past were nokia products, but I'd like to say CONGRATULATIONS TO GOOGLE, coz I am most definitely a fan of great innovation.

So expensive, I really waiting for this but if they put less frame because that is too revealing. I want to record some bad attitude of police man here who often rob people without they realize it. Integration google now will be great as I just need to talk 'google, what plant is this?' as I looking to the subject, and google now give scientific answer and if the subject can be usefull or poisonous. That will be daebak
