Google’s new smart glasses initiative “Project Glass” was revealed to some pretty genuine excitement, and even though the concept is a bit different from anything we’ve seen so far, their little video made it seem awesome and frankly inevitable. Of course, it glossed over some other things that might be less awesome but just as inevitable, things like running into telephone poles and accidentally sending speech texts. Tom Scott decided to make Project Glass a second video highlighting those “features” to hilarious effect. I think Tom might have a point, but I also trust Google, so we’ll just have to wait and see how it all plays out.
