Brin said smartphones are "emasculating"

Smartphones are so yesterday, according to Google.

Google co-founder Sergey Brin, who appeared at the TED stage yesterday, explained that smartphones don't allow their users to interact enough with the outside world, and even called them "emasculating." People walk around with their faces buried in their smartphone's screen and swipe at a piece of glass.

"Is this the way you're meant to interact with other people?" asked Brin. "It's kind of emasculating. Is this what you're meant to do with your body?

"When we started Google 15 years ago, my vision was that information would come to you as you need it. You wouldn't have to search query at all."


According to Brin, Google Glass -- a hands-free, voice-activated headset with augmented reality features -- is that vision materialized. Brin showed Google Glass off at TED, saying it's the way people were meant to interact with one another while still using digital technology.

Google Glass is being offered to early adopters right now for a steep price of $1,500.

"What is the innovation that this jackass is bragging about."

Right... I am the one acting like a child here... LOL.

Anyhow, here is a good idea of some of the things it can do. FOr GPS/NAV alone its worth it to me. But it can do alot more, and the potential for future products is amazing.
