Why You Should Use It:
Google Glass will be available some time next year. A redesigned version was just released that addresses some of the issues with the first version.
The device puts information in your field of vision that you can interact with. It’s a camera, display field, touchpad and contains a battery and mic all housed in a frame that you wear on your head like glasses (and yes, you can wear it with glasses).
Anything that would normally be displayed on a screen is projected into your field of vision using a prism.
Take pictures, get on-the-fly translations, data relevant to where you are, start a hangout plus a whole bunch of other stuff. Apps are being developed as we apeak.
