In his article about Project Glass for The New York Times, Nick Bilton, addresses the idea that the glasses could actually be a greater interference in people’s lives:

People I have spoken with who have have seen Project Glass said there is a misconception that the glasses will interfere with people’s daily life too much, constantly streaming information to them and distracting from the real world. But these people said the glasses actually free people up from technology.

One person who had used the glasses said: “They let technology get out of your way. If I want to take a picture I don’t have to reach into my pocket and take out my phone; I just press a button at the top of the glasses and that’s it.”

So, the glasses free you up from technology because you’re conveniently wearing them all the time?
