The key experiential question of Google Glass isn’t what it’s
like to wear them, it’s what it’s like to be around someone
else who’s wearing them. I’ll give an easy example. Your
one-on-one conversation with someone wearing Google Glass is
likely to be annoying, because you’ll suspect that you don’t
have their undivided attention. And you can’t comfortably ask
them to take the glasses off (especially when, inevitably, the
device is integrated into prescription lenses). Finally —
here’s where the problems really start — you don’t know if
they’re taking a video of you.
My hope is that restaurants and bars will ban them.
