Google Glass hits UK shores!

Google GlassOK! I am going to come out and and say it – I am very excited about yesterday’s launch of Google Glass in the UK. As a bit of a technology and social media geek, this is awesome news and I can’t wait to see the British public’s reaction to this somewhat controversial wearable technology. However, if you’re not a so called ‘geek’ you might be interested in this article : Seven Google Glass apps that go beyond the geek.

Yes, there were some initial teething problems with the software, hardware and even the concept of wearable technology, which was highlighted in one of my previous blog post, Google Glasses- behind the glass. Ivy Ross, leader of the Google Glass project ensures us there have been many changes and developments. I think it could take the British public a little time to get used to this toy. It could take some time but I can see this technology becoming very popular.

Will you be buying this exciting and new technology? With a price tag of around £1,000 it might be something I might look to buy in the future once the price comes down a little bit. It would be great to hear your thoughts and views on this technology. Wearable technology is going to be our future and over the last year it has received some criticism but is it time to embrace this new technology era?
