The days of people wearing glasses merely to correct their vision are long gone. The advances in technology have brought forth the new class of people wearing – the “Meta Glassholes”.
This new breed of fashionistas have come prepared for the world with augmented reality headsets or ‘wearable technology’ built into their frames. They are able to use a series of special computer-generated images to enhance their daily lives.
Using Meta’s augmented reality glasses, users can have a virtual display in front of their face that will project helpful information such as restaurant reviews, directions, and their daily schedule. In addition, they can even order up items for purchase without ever offering up their credit card or having to transport to the store.
The augmented reality glasses can be used both for entertainment and work. For example, they can be used to stream movies or music, as well as Skype, FaceTime, or other communication platforms. When combined with peripherals, the glasses can be used to assist you in the workplace, allowing you to turn your office into a fully immersive virtual workspace.
The possibilities that come with the advent of the Meta Glassholes are truly astounding. Imagine being able to have a digital assistant perform mundane tasks or a virtual tour guide help you choose your dream vacation destination. You can even have facial recognition so you can easily remember the faces of people you meet.
While the sky is really the limit with this new technology, it still has a long way to go before it can become the norm. The cost of the glasses are prohibitive for most people, and the glasses are still a bit bulky and unrefined. Right now, the comfort and style of the glasses are a huge focus. This is why the design and aesthetics of the glasses may actually drive adoption more than anything else in the short-term.
No matter what the outcome, it is clear that the Meta Glassholes are no doubt an interesting development in technology and fashion. They represent a leap forward in what can be accomplished and what will come to define the future.
