Although it wasn't a big theme during the I/O keynote, Google Glass wearers were everywhere at this year's show. And most people I spoke to really liked it, with one Glass owner telling me that he much preferred it to his smartphone for taking pictures. The mission of Glass is clear: shrink gadgets to the point we forget we're using them.
According to Google CEO Larry Page, “the main goal is to get happy users using Glass. We want to make sure we're building experiences that make people happy.” It's statements like this that tell me Google won't be truly happy until the day comes when gadgets — especially its own — become irrelevant.
