If today's Google I/O keynote is any indication, Google's idea of being edgy during its presentation of Google Glass is to have a bunch extreme sports bros roll-in/drop-in on bikes and parachutes. But for all the time and effort and money that likely went into this grandstanding, is this actually impressive? Let's talk about it.
This is just a demo of a video camera mounted on glasses connected to a wireless router placed in a backpack. It's a good demo of how wireless technology works, but hardly futuristic stuff.
The fact is that, right now, Google Glass remains a miniature camera mounted on eyeglasses. It has failed to deliver on its promise to deliver a Terminator-like HUD display to your world. No amount of skydiving or any other stunt will change that.
