Did Google Glass have options for gaming?

Recommended Posts

Remember the Google Glass? It was a wearable tech item you could use as glasses, and you could navigate the web, make calls, and do other stuff. Sadly, Google stopped production and moved on from it years ago. In that time it was around for though, do you guys remember if we got any games for it? Were any good? 

I'm going to suspect it didn't have any games, or if it did, it didn't have a lot. Anyway, did anyone here own a pair of the Google Glasses? Did they work well? 

Do you think Google will ever release a new pair?

I remember seeing them when I was in school, but I don't think so. When I talked to someone who owned them, it mostly was for GPS, taking photos, and tracking specific things or getting alerts from your phone to your glasses.

 

I think that having glasses that also play games might be an issue since people would try to wear them when driving, or doing other things that they shouldn't.

I think the product was pure data collection unit. And such products are more serving the company than the consumer. a lot of places where people go with the glass tends to make things a bit hive for data collection. not something I'd see trust worthy especially if it's from the facebook and google.

Have to agree here - they made no legitimate attempt at releasing a functional product. They even acquired a company with a working, fully functional version and haven't done anything with it at ALL! As a matter of fact, Google discontinued the product ( I can't quite remember the name of the company so you'll have to check it out).

Yeah they didn't even bother following up the product updates. this is one reason I don't trust the google for any innovation. they are not worth trusting your business over.
