Discussion: Google has unveiled a new gadget, referred to as Google Glass, which is a wearable computer in the form of a pair of glasses. The glasses are web-connected and can take videos, video chat, navigate you to your next location, or respond to a text message with simple voice commands. The headset has a small screen that is above and to the right of the user’s eye–this allows the display to not block the user’s vision while also being constantly present. Google is holding a contest to see who will be the first to wear and test the new Google Glass.
