Remember those old mobile phones they had years ago? They were black and the size of your forearm? Remember how big the antenna was and how people clipped it on their belt, walking proudly proclaiming they could make phone calls, wirelessly on the street? Yeah, me either. The truth is, they were heavy, had short battery life and they were very expensive. But despite this, they revolutionised the way we communicated. No longer did we have to get home before we made the phone call on the landline, and no longer did we have to make the effort to go and physically find the person to have the conversation. A few buttons and all that effort vanished. As time went on, the mobile phones became smaller, for the most part, and the content use became vastly larger. Not only could we sent text messages to our friends but we could then contact them using various ‘apps’ or ‘widgets’; sending them picture messages or even calling them from the other side of the world using apps that allowed you to make free international calls.
I personally remember the day the iPhone came out. The hype was out of this world and the apple store in Sydney was crazy. People lined out front and camped over night for days to be the one of the first people to have the new Smartphone. And smart indeed it was. Not only could this phone do everything that your average desktop and landline combined, but it changed completely the way that we interacted with humans. Everything was accessible at the palm of our hands.
But have you ever wanted to take that perfect photo and missed the moment while fumbling for your phone in your bag? ALAS! A SOLUTION HAS BEEN MADE!
Photo and film shooting has never been so easy…and stylish!
Introducing the new Google Glass. The technology that will change the way we live! I know, a very bold statement, but seeing how the smartphone shaped the way we communicated, it would be fair to say that the Google Glass would be an extension of that involvement. With features of voice control, video camera and a still shot camera, GPS and internet, the google glass is sure to be the next best, and possibly controversial technology on the market.
The questions we have to ask ourselves are how wold this further change the way we interact? Would consumers be able to function without it? With the release to be at the end of 2013, only time will tell.
