Google’s ‘augmented glasses’ could bring artificial intelligence to idiots
Google’s latest gadget, a pair of ‘virtual reality’ glasses that can identify objects in the real world, could help cretins relate to the man in the street, according to experts.
The glasses project facts onto a video ‘lens’, giving the wearer vital information about everyday items they can interact with, such as bus stops, reflections in windows or their own hands.
Even the most bewildered will soon be able to give the impression they’re allowed out on their own, as they bluff their way through a conversation about the weather.
‘There was all wet going on me, and I did panic,’ explained guinea-twit, Barry Stilton. ‘but then the face things explained it was ‘raining’, whatever that is. Then I stopped to have a bit of a stare at a wall and the words ‘YOUR NAME IS BARRY’ flashed up. I hadn’t forgotten, but it’s nice to be sure.’
A lawyer for Google later denied culpability for the tragic drowning of Stilton, after his glasses told him to walk home on the river.Click to send this story to a friend
