Google Glass: first-hand experience of New York Fashion Week

Ah, Google Glass. While this snazzy piece of head-mounted augmented reality isn’t available to us plebians yet, Google has been teasing everyone’s imagination here and there, including demo-ing the glasses with skydiving and the such. More recently, designer Diane Von Furstenberg and her models donned the $1,500 glasses for her Spring/Summer 2013 runway show at New York Fashion Week, a great immersive example of how unobtrusively Google Glass can go towards documenting life in this technological age. Take our money, Google, just take it.
