Google Glass The Next Apple II

Google Glass The Next Apple II

Google Glass has received a mixed reaction from the selected users who currently have access to the wearable device, some say it is pointless and others suggest they could not live with out.

After reading all the reviews published so far it dawned on me how we haven’t seen this response to a piece of technology like this in a long time. The Google Glass shows a repeat of discussion when Apple Computers launched the Macintosh II, back in 1987.

Apple released the Macintosh II for $5500 which translates to around $8732.46 (?5633) in today’s money which is a lot of money for a computer that could be described as a product not being able to do more than a conventional calculator. However, it was the technology that pushed it, this seems the exactly the same with the Google Glass.

The explorer edition of Glass currently costs $1500 (?928) which is fairly expensive considering the lack of useful technology inside the device and the apparent need for more apps. This does not deter the point that the Google Glass is an amazing technological advancement and nobody is denying that but, in my opinion, it may just need a little more advancing before it meets everyday users.

It took us around 20 years until we realised what the Macintosh II actual did for us and what type of evolution in technology it could possible cause. Little did we know that it would create thousands of jobs for developers and accessory designers from all around the world as well as providing a everyday use for anyone and everyone.

Glass is the first big product we have seen in the wearable technology category which is aimed at the general public and it is obvious that this is an interesting product, but can it be or will it be a much more useful product in the coming years.
