Google Looking for "Creative Individuals" For Glass Developer Program 144

rtoz writes with a quick bite from rtoz.org about Google's latest news about Project Glass: "Google has released video preview of its forthcoming Google Glass wearable headset, providing a fresh, and more realistic look at the device's user interface. Based on the demo, Google Glass will allow users to receive and execute onscreen directions, send voice-controlled messages, and search the web through speech. The UI also includes voice-controlled photos, and suggests that the device will offer onscreen translation support. And, it looks like the Google Glass will be water-resistant. Google has previously said it is aiming to launch Glass by early 2014, though it is already pushing out developer editions priced at $1,500." They're looking for developers, but only if you're hip enough.

    I'd walk into a wall.

    Seriously, what about those of us who already have glasses? I guess I'm not hip enough. :(

    What niche does it fill

    If you went back in time to the 1970s and described a smartphone to someone, that's exactly what they'd say. Some products create their own niche.

    Imagine this: a construction worker puts on a visor. He taps a button, and the new building's frame appears. Another button, and the plumbing system appears. Another button, and the Red Sox game appears in the upper left corner of his field of view. Another button, and a busty woman appears and asks to borrow his hammer. Worker productivity plummets, and software companies get rich.

    If you are scared to talk about your idea in public, it is a terrible idea.

    You mean not enabling some mechanical turk of 12 bottom-tier developers crap something out and claim 100% market share for your killer idea while you're still in the system design stage is a terrible idea?
