Have You Had The Google Glass Experience? M Booth Gives It A Try

M Booth PR’s blog Word. went live this week with a Google Glass edition, filling a Pinterest board with clips and commentary that’s entirely Google Glass created or related.

Lauren Martiello was the firm’s “Google Glass Explorer,” and she visits everything from gardens in the skies of NYC (above) to art exhibits and the workspaces of various creative types. Check it out for yourself and see what you think.

I also had the chance to take Google Glass for a test run and found it to be a bit too much. I get the hands-free nature of it. But do I want to have a device on my face and a screen in my peripheral vision in order to achieve that hands-free-ness? Not really. Of course, technology has a way of becoming necessary once it’s out in the world for a bit and its utility is fully sussed out. As for PRs, you can probably get a few cool stunts out of it. Clients would certainly be happy.

If you have thoughts on Google Glass do share. After the jump, ICYMI, Google’s own clip about the experience of using the device.
