Google Glass Integration For Cars Is Coming: Neat Idea Or Crazy Town? 102

cartechboy writes "Americans have enough trouble keeping from texting their way to dangerous — or worse — situations in cars. But now car makers, looking to differentiate with tech integrations and after jamming iPhone everywhere, are working hard at integrating Google Glass into vehicles. Consider this quote: 'Within seconds, I've got step-by-step directions to a coffee shop down the street beamed directly to my eyeballs.' Aside from being a little Jetsons, sounds potentially problematic. (Note, Mercedes had been doing R&D since July.) It goes without saying that someone is working on an integration of their own with a Tesla Model S. There is a coolness factor, there may be some utility — but not sure this is a great idea."

    Car, I'm bored, take me to somewhere interesting. I'll take a nap while you drive.

    Now you can launch yourself through the windshield directly into the virtual world of Google Glass. My first adware app for Google Glass will simulate a Mac truck approaching your car, right on your windshield. The driver's instinct will be to swerve off the road, right into the gas stations that pay me for this amazing new form of advertising.

    "Oh, officer, we haven't seen him for days and we're so worried about him. We don't know were he could be."

    "OK, please try to calm down and think. Did you have a fight or was he upset about anything?"

    "No. Well ... the last thing I remember, the neighbor boy, Dennis Mitchell and his dog Ruff, came over. Dennis was asking George why he was so old and such little boy questions. George stated he wanted to go to the store to pick up some more pipe tobacco. The last thing I remember, as he was getting into the car George said to Dennis 'Get lost!'"
