Google Glasses As Interpreted By A Meme-Fueled InternetBy: Zach Walton - April 23, 2012
I absolutely love Project Glass, Google’s smart glasses project. While the concept itself is exciting enough, the potential uses in the future for the device are pretty awesome. From being a Terminator to playing Battlefield 5 in an empty lot, the potential is limitless. The latest concept/parody video might be the most truthful of all the videos though as it shows us what happens when Project Glasses gets into the hands of the Internet.
YouTube user ElectRoulette has created what will probably be the Internet’s first use for Project Glass – turning them into Meme Glasses. What follows is a day in the life of what you might call a casual purveyor of Internet culture. I’m sure it would be much worse for the people that live and breathe the Internet.
Of course, there are some pitfalls that come with the Meme Glasses beyond using memes over a safe limit. The concept of being able to spot ninjas in the open is a terrifying prospect indeed. The glasses being able to tell your ethnicity just by how you drive might also open the door to some potential litigation.
Regardless, this is one of the best parody videos yet, because I can see this actually happening within a year of the glasses being on sale. Give people the power to take memes anywhere they go and the world would be a much better (and funnier) place. The only problem would be updating the glasses with the most recent memes. As we all know, there’s nothing worse than a tired, over-used meme.
