The screen of Project Glass sits off to the side, clear and unobtrusive. You interact with it when you need to. When an e-mail or text message comes in, you can look if you want, or simply ignore it. It’s not as if a large red stop sign is jammed in your face when messages arrive. These things obviously have their share of problems. They cost $1,500, for a special pre-order.
The technology was barely there.
And that’s the point. When technology gets out of the way, we are liberated from it. Wearable computing will free us from peering at life through a 4-inch screen. We will no longer have to constantly look at our devices, but instead, these wearable devices will look back at us.
