It's The Future and Everything Is Still Boring

Google is rumored to be working on a pair of heads-up display glasses, which would allow information and text to appear in your immediate visual field. Futuristic! But before you get too excited:

According to the source, the HUD side attachment is not transparent and doesn’t have any 3D capabilities, thus it appears Google has simply affixed a Smartphone screen to the side of a pair of glasses….This new HUD device, if it ever does hit the market, doesn’t appear to fulfill the likely expectations of sci-fi and gadget enthusiasts who have for years been dreaming of having their own Terminator or more recently Iron Man type glasses that are transparent and offer up relevant information about the environment in truly meaningful ways, such as what’s on the menu of a nearby restaurant, or the name and phone number of girls in a nightclub.

Or people to avoid in nightclubs! MAYBE SOMEDAY.

At least you'll know to avoid people wearing these, in nightclubs. Or anywhere else. It's a start!

@stuffisthings I just avoid nightclubs.

@SeanP I avoid people who avoid nightclubs, by going to nightclubs.

Or you could do what I do and avoid nightclubs altogether, along with their crowds of vapid ciphers gyrating their souls into soul dust, working themselves into a mindless frenzy in the false hope that this altered state produces the sensation known as "fun." God, nightclubs are fucking terrible. Eat my ass, nightclubs!

Heads up displays? Who cares? I want tactile feedback. For, um, online sweater purchases and stuff.
