Зголемени реалност очила Google Glass се третира неправедно, или па неговите дизајнери размислуваат, и да се воспостави рамнотежа Google има разоткриени на “Топ десет митови” за тоа.
мит 1 – Стакло е крајната одвраќање од реалниот свет. Според Google, “Стакло е исклучено и само кога сакате да биде.” Со други зборови, тоа е само кога тоа е вклучен и поради тоа нема да ви го одвлекува вниманието, освен ако тоа не.
мит 2 – Стакло е секогаш и снимање на сето. Google соопшти, “Стакло не е наменета за или дури и способни за секогаш на снимање (на батеријата нема да трае подолго од 45 минути пред тоа треба да биде обвинет).” Тоа, сепак, би било убаво ако имаше црвено светло кои дојдоа на или нешто иако, не би го?
мит 3 – Стакло Истражувачите се технолошки обожаваат видливо. Google said its Explorers, or beta testers, include “parents, firefighters, zookeepers, brewmasters, film students, reporters, and doctors.” It also claimed that Glass makes them use technology less “because they’re using it more efficiently”. We’re really not sure what to make of that statement, so we’ll wait and see if parents, firefighters, zookeepers, brewmasters, film students, reporters, and doctors are first in the queue on launch day.
мит 4 – Glass is ready for prime time. Google reminded us that this is a prototype device and that “in the future, today’s prototype may look as funny to us as that mobile phone from the mid 80s.” Не, Google. Not in the future, сега.
мит 5: Glass does facial recognition (and other dodgy things). Google said it doesn’t. Добро, it doesn’t. Not yet.
мит 6: Glass covers your eye(s). Google said the screen is actually above the right eye. If we wanted to be pedantic we’d say that it’s a pair of glasses so of course it covers the eyes, but we won’t.
мит 7 – Glass is the perfect surveillance device. Google seemed to find this terribly amusing. Уште се наведува дека, “If someone wants to secretly record you, there are much, much better cameras out there than one you wear conspicuously on your face and that lights up every time you give a voice command, or press a button.” Fair enough.
мит 8 – Glass is only for those privileged enough to afford it. There are rumours that the finished device will cost significantly less than the present $1,500 цена. However Google said some raised the money to buy it through Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Што, навистина? We’re going to try to raise the money for a new fridge for the office.
мит 9 – Glass is banned… EVERYWHERE. Google warned, “Just bear in mind, would-be banners: Glass can be attached to prescription lenses, so requiring Glass to be turned off is probably a lot safer than insisting people stumble about blindly in a locker room.” Given that we’ve already had people being arrested for wearing Glass while driving and held by the FBI for movie piracy, we’ve got a long way to go.
мит 10 – Glass marks the end of privacy. Google pointed out that people thought cameras, video cameras and cellphones all signaled the end of privacy, but in reality, and once they became commonplace, the worry died down. This final point brings us to our Internet of Things Дебатата.
The INQUIRER is running a debate this week on the rise of the Internet of Things that is powering wearable technology development. We’d like to hear your views on whether the Internet of Things will kill privacy, or whether user data collected by smart devices will be adequately protected.
