Google Glass Could Disrupt Crucial Cognitive Capacity of Wearer

Google Glass Could Disrupt Crucial Cognitive Capacity of Wearer

Google's revolutionary glass has certainly made headlines around the world and everyone want to have this magic wearable computer as a replacement of one's ordinary eyesight or sun glasses.

But now there is a caution by Daniel J. Simons, is a professor of psychology and advertising at the University of Illinois and Christopher F. Chabris, is a professor of psychology at Union College.

According to the leading professors, the magic Google glass could disrupt crucial cognitive capacity and distract wearers to the point where they miss things which are 'utterly obvious.'

It may be added that Google Glass is a wearable computer with a head mounted display. It can connect with the internet via voice command and display information on the glass 'screens'. The glasses, which cost $1,500 a pair (£980), are currently on limited release to 2,000 customers but will be more widely available later this year.

The professors contend: 'Google Glass may allow users to do amazing things, but it does not abolish the limits on the human ability to pay attention.'
