The SXSW Photowalk I’ve been talking about was sponsored by Google. They gave out some swag, I got a microfiber cloth and a LED flashlight. Something that made even a bigger splash were a couple of people who sported that latest tech. Google Glass is a wearable computer, voice activated and still in beta. You will notice that these two women are wearing the computer on their face. The plastic piece attached to their “Glasses” on the right side of their face. It has a built-in camera and probably loads of other features that I don’t know.
The first photo features the latest in tech. In addition to Nicole’s Google Glass, she is also looking at a Lytro, light field camera. Just part of the nerd-like fun at these SXSW Interactive Photowalks. We didn’t get to use the Google Glass, so I can’t give you a first hand account. I’m interested in trying it but I’m uncertain about using it myself. It’s one thing to have attractive women sporting these devices but for me, not so much. I need to be decreasing my nerdiness, and I’m not sure if this device will help my case.
