The Great Invisible

Great design is invisible. Not literally, of course, but in functionality. If something is well designed, using it becomes effortless. something just done without having to think about it. Project Glass has the potential to be great design with tech in the background, as Google's Sergey Brin would say, enabling people to interact with it seamlessly, without interruption and without the need to know too much to make it do what you want it to do.

BRT wrote a blurb about this innovative tech stating the hardware looks cool, the potential looks promising and the impact truly disruptive if the interface works as it should in Minority Report Circa 2012.

Seen here is a closeup of the device Google patented back in October of 2011.

Potential uses of this hardware becomes endless, one of which is something yours truly will use to the max when the hardware becomes available, concerns speech recognition (which Glass will have) and it's ability to convert speech to readable text, a boon to folks as deaf as I am.

Any questions?
