Recognizing the difficulty of a complex and confusing user interface, Google announced today that they are dropping Google Glass, in favor of Google Eye. Instead of relying on a bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection, Google Eye takes advantage of a direct neural connection into the cerebral cortex.
Google Eye uses a new chemical energy conversion system that promises significantly greater battery life, as well as continuous video recording. With two different types of light sensors, Google Eye is able to accommodate a significantly greater range of illumination levels than previous systems.
Taking advantage of the latest compression algorithms, Google Eye stores all data using a unique array of synaptic connections, rather than the relatively primitive silicon based chips used in Glass. Storage capacity of the Google Eye is rumored to be up to 2.5 petabytes, a significant improvement over the 12 gigabytes available in Glass.
According to Google Vice President of Research, Charles Robert, “We have been working on Google Eye for millions of years and expect widespread market acceptance.” Current research within Google involves integrating Google Eye with Google Ear for a complete audiovisual experience.
I remember reading a science fiction book once where the computer plugged into the back of one’s neck and information was automatically downloaded into one’s brain (a la your Google Eye). At the time, I thought it was far out. Now, I look back on it and I think, “plug in? Ha! Why plug into one’s brain when we have wireless connection?”
haha. You’re funny. I’m loving your satirical posts.
