Google Glass may not become a consumer hit as support wanes | TechnologyTell. There is no doubt. Wearable computing is a hit. We are wearing smartwatches, wearing bluetooth headsets, and we wear our smartphones in our pockets, on our belt, and carry them around in our hands. However, Google Glass looks like a consumer bust, even though in specific applications (like surgery, and some professional purposes) it has been a success. Why won't consumers wear them. First, because they distract from our interaction with the real world. Notifications and enhanced applications are one thing. But, Google Glass is a spy machine. Nobody is going to want to have a pair of these staring in their face. They will be banned from many public venues. We may have no privacy anymore; but, we don't want the fact shoved in our faces. Of course, I may be wrong. But, I don't think so.
