My two-week review of Google Glass: it all depends on the price

This week I gave five speeches while wearing it.
I passed through airports four times (two more in a couple of hours).
I let hundreds of people try my Google Glass.
I have barely taken it off since getting it other than to sleep.

Here's my review after having Google Glass for two weeks:

1. I will never live a day of my life from now on without it (or a competitor). It's that significant. 
2. The success of this totally depends on price. Each audience I asked at the end of my presentations "who would buy this?" As the price got down to $200 literally every hand went up. At $500 a few hands went up. This was consistent, whether talking with students, or more mainstream, older audiences.
3. Nearly everyone had an emotional outburst of "wow" or "amazing" or "that's crazy" or "stunning." 
4. At NextWeb 50 people surrounded me and wouldn't let me leave until they had a chance at trying them. I haven't seen that kind of product angst at a conference for a while. This happened to me all week long, it is just crazy.
5. Most of the privacy concerns I had before coming to Germany just didn't show up. I was shocked by how few negative reactions I got (only one, where an audience member said he wouldn't talk to me with them on). Funny, someone asked me to try them in a bathroom (I had them aimed up at that time and refused).
6. There is a total generational gap that I found. The older people said they would use them, probably, but were far more skeptical, or, at minimum, less passionate about the fact that these are the future, than the 13-21-year-olds I met.

So, let's cover the price, first of all. I bet that +Larry Page is considering two price points: something around $500, which would be very profitable. Or $200, which is about what the bill of materials costs. When you tear apart the glasses, like someone else did (I posted that to my Flipboard "Glasshole" magazine) you see a bunch of parts that aren't expensive. This has been designed for mass production. In other words, millions of units. The only way Google will get there is to price them under $300.

I wouldn't be shocked if Larry went very aggressive and priced them at $200. Why would Google do this? 

Easy: I'm now extremely addicted to Google services. My photos and videos automatically upload to Google+. Adding other services will soon be possible (I just got a Twitter photo app that is being developed by a third party) but turning on automatic uploads to other services will kill my batteries on both my phone and my glasses (which doesn't have much battery life anyway). So, I'm going to be resistant to adding Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Evernote, and Tumblr to my glasses. Especially when Google+ works darn well and is the default. 

Also, Google is forbidding advertising in apps. This is a HUGE shift for Google's business model. I believe Larry Page is moving Google from an advertising-based company to a commerce based company.

The first thing I tried that it failed on was "find me a Sushi restaurant." I'm sure that will get fixed soon and, Google could collect a micropayment anytime I complete a transaction like reserving a seat at a restaurant, or getting a book delivered to my house, or, telling something like Bloomingdales "get me these jeans." 

There is literally billions of dollars to be made with this new commerce-based system, rather than force us to sit and look at ads, the way Facebook and tons of other services do.

When you wear these glasses for two weeks you get the affordance is totally different and that having these on opens you up to a new commerce world. Why?

1. They are much more social than looking at a cell phone. Why? I don't need to look away from you to use Google, or get directions, or do other things. 
2. The voice works and works with nearly every one and in every situation. It's the first product that literally everyone could use it with voice. It's actually quite amazing, even though I know that the magic is that it expects to hear only a small number of things. "OK Glass, Take a Picture" works. "OK Glass, Take a Photo" doesn't. The Glass is forcing your voice commands to be a certain set of commands and no others will be considered. This makes accuracy crazy high, even if you have an accent.

I continue to be amazed with the camera. It totally changes photography and video. Why? I can capture moments. I counted how many seconds it takes to get my smartphone out of my pocket, open it up, find the camera app, wait for it to load, and then take a photo. Six to 12 seconds. With Google Glass? Less than one second. Every time. And I can use it without having hands free, like if I'm carrying groceries in from the car and my kids are doing something cute. 

I've been telling people that this reminds me of the Apple II, which I unboxed with my dad back in 1977. It was expensive. It didn't do much. But I knew my life had changed in a big way and would just get better and better. Already this week I've gotten a new RSS app, the New York Times App, and a Twitter app. With many more on the way.

This is the most interesting new product since the iPhone and I don't say that lightly.

Yeah, we could say the camera isn't good in low light. We could say it doesn't have enough utility. It looks dorky. It freaks some people out (it's new, that will go away once they are in the market). 

But I don't care. This has changed my life. I will never live a day without it on. 

It is that significant. 

Now, Larry, find a way to make it $200 and you'll have a major hit on your hands.

(Attached are dozens of photos I shot over the past two weeks with it).

Julölets historia – samtal på Fars dag den 10 november
Nordiska museets Jonas Engman berättar om varför vi dricker speciellt öl på julen och varför drycken passar så bra till julmat. Han går också in på vad ett julöl egentligen är, hur länge vi har druckit det och vad det betyder att dricka jul. Till sin hjälp har han bryggaren och receptdesignern Lasse Ericsson från Nynäshamns Ångbryggeri, ett av Sveriges äldsta småbryggerier som startade 1997. Lasse berättar om årets julöl, eller midvinterbrygd som den också kallas, och om kryddor, recept och hur man brygger gott öl.

Föredraget pågår kl 13-14.30 och i priset ingår även att prova årets julöl och en lager från Nynäshamns Ångbryggeri. Till ölen serveras skinksmörgås med senap. Alkoholfritt alternativ finns. Endast förköpsbiljetter. Läs mer: http://bit.ly/julol

Missa inte Nordiska museets fina Folkhemslägenhet som öppnar nu på torsdag 23 maj.
 
Torsdag 23 maj öppnar Nordiska museet dörrarna till Folkhemslägenheten, en hemmiljö från slutet av 1940-talet. Lägenheten på två rum och kök är byggd i full skala inne i museibyggnaden och är typisk för hur en nybyggd HSB-lägenhet kunde se ut vid tiden.

I lägenheten kommer den fiktiva familjen Johansson att bo. Familjen, som består av mamma, pappa och tre barn, har just flyttat från en trång och omodern enrummare till denna folkhemslägenhet med både toalett, badkar och tvättstuga. Rummen är möblerade med insamlade originalmöbler och fyllda av kläder, husgeråd och andra föremål från tiden. Köksmöblerna har flyttats med från familjens tidigare hem, medan soffgrupp och matsalsmöblemang är moderna, med 1940-talsmått mätt.
Besökare hemma hos familjen Johansson har möjlighet att titta i skåpen, sitta i soffan och lyssna på radioprogram från tiden. Kliv över tröskeln och in i en annan tid.

Nordiska museet ger i samband med folkhemslägenhetens invigning ut en bokserie och en CD.

Appen hela året om!
 
Varför eldas det på valborgsmässoafton, hur firas mors dag enligt 1920-års instruktion och vad har Johannes Döparen för koppling till midsommarafton? Den som vill kunna briljera i frågesport eller slå omgivningen med häpnad med sin kunskap om högtidsdagar får nu ett verktyg när Nordiska museet lanserar appen Årets dagar.
