If you thought Bluetooth headsets were bad, you might not want to read the rest of this post.

Google is working on developing augmented-reality glasses under the title “Project Glass.”  These glasses would allow users to basically integrate computer functionality into every second of their waking existences.

They look like the top part of an eyeglasses frame, and from what the video shows, they let you do basically everything a smartphone lets you do, except that it is totally interactive with the surrounding world and projects the graphics right directly in the user’s field of vision.

While this technology looks impressive, it is hard to tell what the actual release of such technology would entail.  People would certainly be even more distracted and disconnected than they already are, and in certain situations, such as driving or walking through busy streets, the glasses could spell outright danger.
