Oh goody goody goody. Another bit of tech designed to take one's attention away from the real world and immerse us deeper in the virtual one. I can imagine some cretin running down a channel at 20 knots with his attention split between his heads up display, a couple of other gadgets that aren't interfaced into it yet, and a tiny bit of attention on the real world. I'm going to feel so much safer out there on the water, yes I am. Thanks, Google.
When I am sailing I do it the way I have always done it, long before all this tech stuff - by looking at the world around me and making decisions based on what I can see/feel/smell. If there is an element that I can't see and think I need to know it (depth, radar in fog, wind nuances) then I refer to the electronics.

To have my world dominated by electronics - in my vision all the time? That's not for me.

If Google want to pay me some money, I'll wear their stuff to test it for them but ask me to pay$1500 for it?? You've got to be joking, man. :)

He's already out there, and doesn't need GGlass to make him a distracted menace.
But him watching his GGlass and me watching my GGlass - mmmmm.

Can I get my GGlass to talk to his GGlass? Maybe that way we can avoid each other.

I think at least one of us should be looking at real stuff. It'll be me.

Forgive me - I'm just rambling - I don't even really know what GGlass is and frankly couldn't be bothered finding out.;)
