Google Glass Has One Year To Change Your Behavior or Fail
Before mobile we used to meet in pre-arranged venues and talk to each other. It almost seems a quaint idea now not to be present in a variety of venues all at the same time, tapping away on a smartphone. The wild success of mobile phones is down to their achievement in transforming the way we spend our time. Google Glass, the heads up display version of the smartphone, also requires substantial behavior change if it is to succeed. Will it be preempted by near-term technologies like flexible displays? Mobiles/smartphones are certainly about to change and why I feel bullish about Apple is that they have the design smarts to take advantage of developments of the type you see in the picture above. It's a flexible OLED screen imagined for the future, in this case retracting into a pen. Using it requires no adaptation, no new behavior, very little acceptance barriers.
