Google Glass Shows Us the World From a 2-Year-Old's Perspective

Google Glass Shows Us the World From a 2-Year-Old's Perspective

Categorize this video as "pretty darn cute". Tech blogger, Chris Angelini, was readying a Tom's Hardware post about his thoughts about Google Glass when his inquisitive 2-year-old son wanted to know what all the hubbub was all about (alongside a request for some juice). Father equips son with Google's life's moment capturing device, giving us a short glimpse of what it's like to be 2 years old all over again...

Mom didn't seem so impressed by his "cool glasses", but he does get his juice with a red straw, so all is not lost.

Interesting enough, despite Google's photo mockup of a baby donning Google Glass and this endearing glimpse of a 2-year-old's view of the world, the company actually advises against allowing children under 13 to don their augmented reality eyewear with version 1.0:

"Don't let children under 13 use Glass as it could harm developing vision. Glass isn't for everyone. Like when wearing glasses, some people may feel eye strain or get a headache. Kids might break Glass or hurt themselves, and Google's terms of service don't permit those under 13 to register a Google account."

Here's what the experience looks like through the eyes of a slightly more older and taller perspective from vlogger, GogleGlassTips:

Check out the dad's insights about using Google Glass for a week over at Tom's Hardware's Google Glass: Ergonomics, Performance, And Practicality, Tested.
