“It’s like I’m in a different world all of the sudden! Technology just rolled over me like a big ol’ steamroller!”

I’m not sure if the older subjects of this video will be running out to join the Google Glass Explorer program, but they sure are amazed by the fact that they have a computer strapped to their faces.

YouTube’s The Fine Bros tackled Google Glass in the latest episode of their ‘Elders React’ series. After handing a pair to the elderly participants, most of them struggled to understand how to simply put on the device (do you wear it like headphones?). After they figured that part out, the struggle turned to how to command the device (oh, it’s already on? where’s the button?).

But with some guidance, the participants were able to execute simple Glass commands like take a picture, record a video, make a call, and so on.

And they seem genuinely impressed with the technology.

“It might be a pain in the ass to really use it.”

“No, I couldn’t wear it all day long, it’s too uncomfortable.”

“You might have an accident or two, you know, driving…”

Well, you almost had them Google. Almost.

    This will contribute to the dumbing down of America. But nobody cares anyway.

      I completely agree with ya Bob! And I DO very much care! Just not much we can do about it, when most people aren’t aware, or they are aware, and don’t want to believe it, OR already so dumbed down that they just, like you said, don’t care unfortunately. There is very little people that realize that we are becoming a socialistic / communistic government. Slowly, but surely! I won’t buy this crap!..Yes, I called it crap! Technology is getting way outta hand! People are now even trying to play God with it, (technology) and to me, it’s just very wrong, in every way! However, I do think that some technology can be used for good things, I feel like this product is only going to be a gateway into stuff we don’t even wanna touch! Also, I think it;s going to be a product that is going to cause a lot of accidents, regret, misfortune, etc…I really do think down the road it’s only gonna make things worse with society as a whole! Don’t get me started! But I’m with ya!
