Girls ‘won’t make a pass at a man in Google Glass’


Hey you guys its Carlos D.

So I decided to go a little more of the fun side for this weeks blog post and talk about the Google Glass. There is so much talk about these glasses that I felt like technology today has developed so differently. From the Design and technology of them people have viewed them differently.

I feel like the Design of the glasses are very unique and interesting, and going back to the article and being fun and cliche would you make a pass at a man wearing a google glass. But wait that is kind of sexist that only men can wear the google glass. Im pretty sure that women can wear them as well. So i can ask men the same question about that.

This is what the managing director for HP’s New Ventures division said

He said: “When you look at the appeal of Google Glass – would you wear it on a date? Probably not. And, if you did, you probably wouldn’t get a second date.”

My question for you guys, is do you guys think that the google glass is an useful design? yes why or why not?

  1. The idea of the google glass is an awesome idea. I would never have even thought to make a pair of “glasses” do such amazing things. However, I don’t think I would wear them on a date for fear of being judged, or of not getting a second date. Admittedly, the guy in the picture does look kind of badass, and the google glass is such new technology that maybe the glasses would be a point of conversation or a conversation starter for a lot of people. The designers of the glasses did manage to make them not TOO awkward looking, and kind of like normal glasses, so who knows, maybe would strike up a conversation with a guy wearing them. But don’t count on me having a pair, I’m a broke college student.

  2. I agree with Amanda, Google glass would definitely be a great conversation starter. The glasses do give a sense of being technologically hip and also pretty wealthy – pretty sure they go for about $10k these days? Which are characteristics many people might wanna portray to a date or potential romantic partner. Personally, if I saw a guy wearing them, I would probably assume he was pretty wealthy, and possibly superficial and arrogant, which would cause me to not be interested. As far as your question, I think they are a useful design, but somewhat frightening, because they are so invisible as a technology in a sense. Since they mimic sight in a way, and make a screen part of your regular vision, it would probably be easy for the user to forget its technology and not reality, which is an interesting, but also a bit disconcerting, line.

  3. I think this is a really interesting concept or idea to think about. I remember when the Google Glasses first came out, I was thinking, how would I know if someone was recording me or not? I think that there is an aspect of this technology that is kind of invasive. You would never know if someone was recording you or not! That is something that I definitely would not feel comfortable with, regardless of their gender. If someone came up to me wearing the glasses I wouldn’t be able to help but wonder if they were using them in that moment or not. Stylistically, they’re very futuristic looking. I guess if someone wore those and tried to strike up conversation with me I would probably think they were a little pretentious. They’re still not that common or accessible so it’s pretty rare that people have them.
