Is Google Glass the interface of the future?

I had a chance to head over to Google’s Google Glass tour this morning.  They are starting their tour of the US with a stop in Durham.  Durham has a great startup community, and being surrounded by multiple colleges, universities, and tech companies, it is the home of great app developers.  So it was a natural for Google to start their tour here.

The line was long, but it moved quickly.

When I got there, right at 10am, the line was already several hundred people long.  It moved pretty quickly, which was good, and I was in the door and playing with glass in right at an hour.  Overall, it was very easy to use and did a pretty good job of dealing with all the noise in the hall.  Given I have glasses now, having had to give up contacts a while back, I was also pleased that the display was clear and legible.  Looking up into the sky lights, it did a good job of handling strong sunlight too.

Where all the action was.

The only problem I ran into was the wireless network.  My glass lost connection and we couldn’t get it to reconnect.  So I had fun taking video, pictures, and looking at the interface, but couldn’t get it to answer any voice queries via Google.
