Now having spent the weekend experimenting some with the Spectacles that my former student Jill so kindly lent me, I am offering some initial observations. First, they are good-looking in their own way. At least, they get people to laugh in a good way and the color is my cup of tea.
I also like the fact that they are not trying to have them blend in as regular eyewear. I remember how Google Glasses looked more like regular glasses and that when it was not obvious to the surroundings that someone would be able to video record them, they at times got very upset when they learned that this indeed was the case. The term “glassholes” was born. I should add that it may not be obvious to people that these Spectacles also can record video snippets but at least a signal is sent that something “weird” and out of the ordinary is going on.
Finally, the packaging is fun and provides for an engaging experience. Judge for yourself by looking at my Spectacles Unboxing video!
