by pio dal cin) Otto membri (bi-partisan) del Congresso USA hanno inviato una lettera aperta al CEO di +Google +Larry Page affinchè chiarisca la posizione del colosso di Mountainview circa l’uso del Google Glass che dovrebbe essere messo in commercio prima della fine dell’anno.
Nelle otto domandeQui riportate in lingua originale alcuni membri del Congresso chiedono a Larry Page di spiegare come la sua compagnia intende gestire il rapporto Glass/Privacy, visto che i Google Glass vengono portati come un normale paio di occhiali ed è difficile al momento stabilire fino a che punto possano ledere la privacy di chi viene inquadrato dalla fotocamera o dalla videocamera incorporata in questo hi tech gadget che una volta lanciato sul mercato avrà una popolarità pari solo a quella del PC o dei telefonini. Tutti sembrano desiderarlo prima ancora che esca sul mercato. Per ora solo pochi “eletti” i “glassexplorers” i pionieri del gadget a 1500$ al paio hanno potuto provare l’ebbrezza di fotografare o filmare scene quotidiane girate con il Glass. Alcuni chirurghi lo stanno usando come fonte immediata di informazioni durante le operazioni. Altri lo usano come strumento di lavoro.
Difficile dire cosa succederà, ma staremo attenti e seguiremo da vicino lo sviluppo di questa controversia che sta spopolando in questo momento sul web

” A cop just stopped me and gave me a ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving!
Is #GoogleGlass ilegal while driving or is this cop wrong???
Any legal advice is appreciated!! This happened in California. Do you know any other #GlassExplorers that got a similar ticket anywhere in the US?”

“H.B. 3057, introduced in the West Virginia legislature a few days ago, looks to add language to existing rules on traffic safety to include a ban on “using a wearable computer with head mounted display,” described as “a computing device which is worn on the head and projects visual information into the field of vision of the wearer.” Another issue is raised what about strip joints? NBC tech has a very interesting article here about the places where the new “toy” from +Google is not going to be welcome.
Personally I raised the question a few days ago in one of my Google plus post on and about the safety of the “Glass” worn by distracted people in Cities and bumping into each other or worst, getting runned over by trucks or taxicab as they will be distracted by this interesting object that is about to be Launched by Google soon.
Only time will tell. So let us wait and see what the impact of this $1,500 is going to be when it will reach the US markets by the end of 2013 beginning of 2014

+Google Glass will make a great impact on the market as it will become available by the end of 2013. I was posting a comment on a New York Times article about the impact it will have on people crossing the street, bumping into each other and eventually getting runned over by a truck or a cab on its way to the Airport in a busy New York. The video here is absolutely funny.
Look at these official videos from +Google They show you how it works and when it will be available, along with great information Google Glass ProjectPersonally I do not think that I will ever own a Glass since the probable price will be in the $1500 range.
Besides that I feel stupid enough walking around with my smart phone. We all became attached to these small objects as if our lives depended on. Easier to interact virtually, (and less risky on the personal level) we often forget about our real lives.
Will this be another step into “Robotizing” our lives? I would like to hear some feedback.

by pio dal cin) I found this great article about +Google Glass project on “Marketingland.com” describing the impact that the Glass will have on the market as the project prepares to release the commercial version of the product by the end of 2013 .
The “Glass” basically will allow you to see what you see now in your “Smartphone” through a pair of glasses that you are wearing. The product was publicized and +Sergey Brin co founder of +Google with +Larry Page was spotted on a New York City subway wearing the “Glass”.
The following analysis by
“Marketingland.com” will explain you what the real impact will be on the way we live in the future
