Google Glass Problems

The Google Glass for many objects of desire, are a new concept in the way users interact with their environment. But, despite its futuristic appearance and price, there are some aspects that give problems to users, and that Google should consider ahead of commercial versions. 

It's time to suggest improvements

Okay, I know, to launch a limited version of the Google Glass developers thinking aims (plus interesting applications that may exist when the glasses on the market) that Google may have the feedback of users to make some improvements in the gadget. Well, that feedback begins to arrive, and the problems and inconveniences that the glasses are giving are the most varied. Let's see them.

Battery

We're used to that many times is a problem in our smartphones . Well imagine a device that, in the ideal case, should be constantly interacting with our environment.Despite having a screen with a much lower consumption than that of a smart phone, do have wireless connectivity, sensor, processor, or other technologies that make their range can vary from 3'5 to 5 hours. A fairly small amount of time to make extensive use of them, especially when developers create new applications that require more resources than the glasses, so Google must think of alternative batteries, or recharge a system of solar energy allow at least increase your airtime. 

Eyestrain and headaches

Despite being designed so you can view your display a few inches from the eye, there are users who have suffered headaches, dizziness, visual fatigue , and other symptoms, which make it quite uncomfortable to use. This will be difficult to solve, since it seems that the display will change very soon.

Poor screen visibility in bright light

Also associated with the screen is the problem that it does not display properly when the environment is very bright . Is due to the projection system itself uses, and again to fix it would be to modify the share of the viewer, isolating most of the ambient light, somewhat complicated if we want digital image overlaps what we are looking beyond the glasses.

Not configurable System

This is one of the most common complaints among users, which is that, although the operating system of Google Glass operates on Android, not Android itself.Specifically, the device does not allow certain configuration actions, such as turning off Bluetooth connection, or change the screen brightness.

Voice control unreliable

The Glass allow Google to answer messages via voice recognition ... in theory. And itoften fails recognition , which writes messages that contain many errors. In addition, this also makes running actions in error, improperly recognizing voice commands, or even worse, that someone else can perform actions in our glasses (like taking a picture) just saying it out loud if you are near our.

Nonfolding structure

We call them glasses but glasses actually have little. So little that can be folded even as traditional glasses (being flexible that can bend itself to prevent splitting, but can not be closed as such), which makes it difficult to keep them comfortably, power colgárnoslas neck, or put them into a small bag. To transport them, keeping what we have to do in the way they are, that is, of eyeglasses with the pin open, since you can not close .

Need Applications "killers"

It is one of the biggest weaknesses of this product is precisely have " killer apps ", apps that actually solve a user need and become more important for precisely used glasses. The existence of these programs is what Google wants to promote, and on it are working and developers, but the very dependence between the success of the glasses and the existence of advanced applications is a weakness of the model, since, if we could do with glasses everything we do with our smartphone, probably its penetration is very low.

Changes in social behavior

Beyond technological aspects, there is a social component associated with these glasses. And, on the one hand, users are still seen as "freaks" in the sense that they are glasses that do not look normal glasses, that attract attention, and are not extended.But also, the people around the user to change their usual behavior , they do not know how to react (do not know if, for example, the user is taking a photo them, which can now be done simply by applying blinking Winky, or if you are recording a video). If people are uncomfortable around people with these glasses, Google will have to think of some indicator that allows others to know if they are being photographed or recorded, among other things.
These are some of the problems that users have reported, and where Google may already be working, though probably continue knowing Google drawbacks of Glass, as its use will spread.
