I'm embarrassed that it's 2013 and I'm wearing glasses not projecting anything into my eyeballs. That's almost barbaric. ~Phil Libin
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Virtual Reality!
Julie Bort gave me a chuckle this morning:
Evernote CEO Phil Libin is positive that Google Glass, and other computerized glasses, are "going to be huge," he told Charlie Rose in an interview this week.
"I'm embarrassed that it's 2013 and I'm wearing glasses not projecting anything into my eyeballs. That's almost barbaric," he quipped.
Such tech will not only be a tool to help us work and play, it will create a kind of psychological "hyperawarness" so potent that "once everyone gets used to it, you will feel stupid when you take it off," he says.
So this is a step toward the Singularity:
A companion that follows you everywhere (it's in your face!) and supplements your understanding.
Evernote is a killerApp for Google Glass. It can act like an external memory supplement.
