Miriam Schwab wearing Google Glass


I finally tried Google Glass for the first time, thanks to Niv Calderon who was kind enough to let me wear his pair for a bit at the ConnectIL event today.

As you can see, I was quite thrilled with the toy, I mean business tool, and couldn’t stop laughing.

This type of in-your-face wearable technology means that any effort that we currently need to make to check our email, facebook, twitter, by taking out our phone, unlocking it, etc., would be reduced to none. The thought of this type of always-on, technologically-framed world makes me feel ill. I can totally see myself eating my words down the line, but you have to wonder: is there a line that we should draw between real and digital? And if so, where is it?

It’s still a cool toy. Wheeeeee!
