Google Glass strikes back

Mocked and shunned by society for wearing Google's dorky face upgrade, Google Glass fans were right all along

When the Pokémon Go craze hit last month, I heard a lot of chatter about how great it would be to play Pokémon Go with Google Glass. And so it would.

More to the point, Pokémon Go is popularizing and mainstreaming mixed reality. This makes the consumer world safe for Google Glass again. Although Hololens and Magic Leap will no doubt provide a much higher-resolution experience for mixed reality, the arrival of these products in mobile versions at affordable prices is many years in the future.

The bottom line is that the Glassholes were right and the naysayers were wrong. Google Glass is already changing the world. And it hasn't even shipped yet.
