Google Goggles — The New Mobile?Posted: May 11, 2012
I just saw this video in my Internet Marketing class yesterday, and I couldn’t help but think how drastically this product could change the world of mobile as we know it. As of today, we think of mobile generally consisting of smart phones, laptops, and tablets, but this product could shift the landscape and make a splash in the future.
While still in development, it is fun to imagine the world this way, everyone walking around with Terminator-esque eyewear, capable of giving exact locations, listening to your voice commands, and giving you reminders and details of your surroundings all along the way.
There are, however, some questions for Google to tackle before they are able to release the product into the market:
- Is there a feature to shut it off? Say, while driving?
- Will they be sleek and fashionable, or will I look like Cyclops from the X-Men?
All in all, this product (which has a release date of somewhere in the end of 2012) seems interesting, and really cool! I am excited to hear what people have to say when it is finally released.
