New wearable computer called Google glass says not yet been officially released but it's already -- in a controversy.
The glasses like device it's -- -- a -- -- way to access the Internet and take photos but some say it could be used.
As an illegal surveillance device joining me now is Fox News science and technology editor Jeremy Kaplan.
And you have a pair of these I do it and somebody took them today.
Unfortunately somebody does -- right now they're they're doing some laps restrict these are these are regular glasses your wearing these ordinary -- our -- and use the -- seven -- contact lenses.
And Bennett has a little a little device on the side is this.
A novelty or is it going is that the future that's the real heart of the question here how important is this because if you look at it it looks like just another.
Silly tech prototype.
I personally I think this is really going to be the wave of the future I think when they boil it down make it a little smaller little slicker.
It is going to be what we're all -- and in five years did it looks kind of like a big -- thing to something stuck in that like you can easily as you -- right it's a staple or taped here I go yes yes so.
I I guess the technology -- got to be working and you mentioned contacts -- got to be working on that.
Oh that's definitely being worked on you don't you know the military's doesn't -- those so nobody will know if you're worried that Google -- astronaut.
That is deafening what's gonna happen at some point -- any controversy might exist you is -- taking pictures of me.
I think we -- -- -- forget about that I think our privacy.
The concept we had a one point of privacy is really just rapidly diminishing into the background -- -- -- -- You're talking to the choir here because I believe that people live are upset about privacy and everything else well then don't have a visa card.
He's decent knows more about you than probably anybody does exactly.
So what it what's it feel like with a look like -- it a distraction.
-- supposed to be not of the scrap distraction it's supposed to be seamless here.
If you where just over here on where your eyebrow is -- essence you're not really thinking about it when you have something like that I've -- them around for five days or so and it was hard.
To forget that I had this big.
Seeing there that I can always do things with it one of the reasons it's hard to forget about.
They built this feature and just kind of convenient if you took your head up past a certain angle it automatically turns on.
Otherwise it's touch the -- on the side in this little screen pops up officials not on all the time not on all the time which you do move your head around an awful putts.
And I found it would just pop itself on which all of says it that points as the time and -- glass you've got to watch -- -- your eyes.
But it's kind of hard to forget that it's there so if I have but a -- glass on and I walk up to you it doesn't automatically tell me this is Jeremy Kaplan.
This is his date of birth this is his address -- it does he give -- all that.
Well it it doesn't do that now and I asked -- specifically is that what we're gonna have -- face recognition of course.
They said no they said we can't do it right now in fact they told me we don't know if that's ever really going to be possible that the technology behind that we really really complicated.
I don't think it's all that complicated and that's reporting on -- everyone's thinking that that's really.
It's got to be just down the road and something -- really opened up that possibility of it wasn't that long ago I remember Bill Gates was asked about the fact that hey you've been running Microsoft for a couple decades.
Why -- you have voice recognition these it's all it's tougher than anybody thought it would be but now you and I coal companies all the time and go through we're talking to a computer.
Exactly and that's how you control Google class.
For the most part the voice recognition system.
And you say okay glass Google what's the temperature in Bermuda or something like that.
It always gets it correct that put -- extent and once it knew exactly look at extend wasn't they here's the weather -- that.
It is -- voice recognition is good it does need to learn your voice and doesn't need to learn your voice -- try to with people with accents.
I -- with men and women people with deep voices and and super high voices he didn't have any problem I think the voice recognition part has been conquered a much -- system.
Well that's a big question that's a real serious question right now the one that I have we paid 15100 dollars for its -- pre production model -- -- to get developers thinking about what apps they can build.
Google -- and so much is gonna cost when it comes out.
I think it's going to be super expensive I think it's going to be 3000 dollars or something but if it's more like five or 600 dollars a becomes very mass market it's the next iPad.
And -- and Bynum for Christmas flew it to question what what they're going to.
The marketing people who do what they're gonna do weather than the credit make it amassed mark a product or not tonight by one.
You -- you get one because you're.
A tech guy on the tech guy yeah I'm the king of the dork so yeah horse -- an hour get out you can't get when yet they said at some point 114 is gonna come out.
Right now there's five or 600 in the country.
In the next couple months there's going to be 2000 in the country.
And then at some point 114 for some undisclosed amount of money you might be able to buy this thing if it comes out two -- sporting a beer referring to them.
Expect Jeremy Kaplan thank you so much pleasure that.
Coming up today.
