If there's something I've learned in life, it's that nothing is obvious to everyone. I realized that around the time I had to explain to a 22 year old who Bill Gates was.

Done. Had to reset the poll, though.

Gaming could be extremely awesome with AR glasses. Or at least it would make your commute more entertaining.. where it transforms your daily route into a demon-infested hellspawn :)

I'd definitely tag a bunch of people because there is so much interesting stuff about people, but I don't remember all of it. Also, I will be taking care of younger students next semester, so it would be practical to never forget their worries...

Poll title: "What would you find most useful about Augmented Reality Glasses?"

Options are:
* Travel directions
* pretending to do one thing while actually using the glasses
* tagged people
* tagged stores
* tagged bathrooms
* gaming
* recording
* taking pictures
* holo maid
* porn
* Come on, why didn't you mention my use for them?!

Currently the leading options are travel directions and tagged people. I just don't think I understand people anymore.

edit -- on second thought, "tagged people" could be a euphemism.  :roll:

Dale looks so much more vulnerable with the glasses off.

I don't mean that in a bad way, I mean he looks open and exposed.  But when he puts on the glasses?  Bad-ass mode engaged ;)

I would love to have the augmented reality effect of the glasses. People with names floating over them etc. Of course the holo maid would be cool too.

Way to go Dale, you are doing yourself a favor by taming the wild May. Or at least getting her to settle down a bit since I doubt she will ever be tame. It's for squares.

A set of virtual whips and chains might help Dale.

Disconnecting the glasses does not "kill" of freeze May, since she had a sense of passing time. Could be an isolated space, though.

Yeah...but the problem is that then she'd send them at Marten and rig the system so he could never deactivate him, and make him apologize for someone finding out about it, and wanting to shut her off, and making her be in the same building as pintsize, etc.

On the main topic, it's fascinating to me that Dales room looks remarkably similar to Marigolds.

I agree with Jeph, Dale is too patient with May. I mean, she obviously doesn't even understand after that timeout that her behaviour may not be ok. I really don't get why she's so pissed at Dale all the time when he hasn't said more than... maybe 50 words since her appearance.
Honestly, I wish we could have some comics without May in them again for a change... I think she does not much improve upon acquaintance.

Um, what does anything in that video have to do with whips, chains, hentai, or manga? Because I don't speak Japanese, all I have to go on is the visuals, and I didn't see anything that seemed related to any of those things...

Edit: Oh, and if I were Dale, I would have turned the glasses back off for that non-apologetic apology. Grrrr.

It is the sort of apology that would get my boys BACK onto the time out, or worse, be the signal for Mom and Dad to restart the lecture on proper behaviour.

Forgot to say this last week but I love Dale's design without the glasses. I don't know why but it clicks with my brain in a nice way.

Despite being too nice to keep May turned off, he doesn't totally take her crap. The more I learn about Dale the more he pushes up my favourite character list.

I don't think he heard what she said. If he did, he should just have switched off. No reason to say anything.

On the poll: tagged people. I'm terrible with names. Having the glasses remind me would be helpful.

Dale is starting to learn what it takes to house-train a teenager. May acts like a fourteen-year-old with a serious attitude problem.

Yeah, tit's interesting to see Dale react to her, but as a character she's sorta flat and predictable right now. 

I'd like to see Momo straighten her out.

I love seeing Dale without his glasses. I love seeing more of Dale in general. He's not especially interesting (like none of the non-Marten male characters are), but it's still nice to see. And maybe he'll develop into an interesting character eventually, who knows?

All this talk about what to do with Glasses is making me sad because they'd never work for me. :( My eyes have drastically different prescriptions, and having the Glasses be both prescription and augmented... well, I wouldn't be able to eat for a while. XD

And I'm still under the impression that being turned off is very unpleasant, probably in the sense of locked-in syndrome. That bothers me still. :/

I hope Dale can get May to behave, but after being turned off for so long, I don't think she's going to be very compliant.

Loli, I don't know anything about corrective eye equipment but would contacts work under the Google glasses?

I really don't like the idea of Google Glass but the one thing I might find useful if I had to have them would be tagging people with notes like their name, their birthday, important things I don't want to forget... my sieve-brain means I separate people from the information about them, so I might know that someone has just got back from two weeks on an archaelogical dig in Egypt, and I might know that this person is George, but I won't remember that it was George who was in Egypt until he says something about it. Which makes me seem really rude and uninterested.

I didn't really consider what tagging people would be but since I'm terrible with names and how I know people, that would be very helpful. Although it's easier to blank people when I don't realise I should know them.

She talked about how the Glasses could track when and how long he had them on.

Assuming this wasn't some manner of (failed) bluff to get him to not deactivate him...

...what if the sysem also tracked how they interacted with each other?  I doubt whoever's in charge would be too pleased at the vitriol she's spewing at him.

not all that different from what facebook does already; using face-recognition software, & letting people other than the up-loader tag photos with profile links. we're already living in a corporate panopticon, and nobody seems to care.

personally, i rather like the idea of google glass, but i'd rather have it as just a display that i could plug into other devices that i keep in my pockets.
