FKA twigs Directed And Starred In This Concept Film Advertisement For Google Glass

Stop trying to make Google Glass happen.

Google got super-wicked-cool artist FKA twigs to star in and direct this "concept film" showing off Google Glass and what it can do. Google Glass is both featured in and used to create the film. Which, yeah, no one's ever used Google Glass to create a wacky art film before, so that's cool. But also, will Google Glass ever be cool? Not even FKA twigs can make it look cool, and she's, like, the coolest person on the planet right now.

It's no secret that the government is creepily watching you all the time, like that weird dude who was really into you in high school.

Google Glass Valentines Day Proposal Video Is Romantic, Awful

Hey four eyes, wanna get hitched?

This week the good folks at Google decided to capitalize on Valentines Day, with a compilation video of Google Glass "explorers" popping the question. The result is manipulative, weird, creepy, sweet, and probably not an effective advertisement. It also answers the question: can you kiss wearing Google's latest technology? (Yes, but awkwardly.)

Am I the only one whose sick of these brilliant, good-hearted kids making us twenty-somethings look bad?

Since the first announcement of Google Glass, it's been a goldmine for comedians (and wannabe-comedians) everywhere.

Final Price for Google Glass Rumored at Less Than $300

Even at $300, is it worth the money?

We're more than a little intrigued with Google Glass, but now that it's out in the wild and we've seen what it really can -- and can't -- do, we've wondered if it's worth the money. Developers paid $1,500 for their early versions, but the final price for the wearable tech could be much less.

Our hearts are often warmed by threats of violence.

The Run the Jewels show the other night in San Francisco was apparently pretty great -- except one concertgoer found herself distracted by the guy she saw wearing Google Glass. So she decided to let him know with the above Missed Connection post, and the rest of the Internet is better for it.

Google Glass Porn Now a Thing That Exists, Here is the Obviously NSFW Trailer [Video]

Well what did you think was going to happen?

Android porn app developer MiKandi tried to make a porn app for Google Glass. It didn't take long for Google to change their rules to prevent it, but Google couldn't stop them from hiring porn stars to don the wearable technology and, well, do what porn stars do, and that's exactly what happened. What would a porn shot with Glass look like? The trailer is a good indication without showing any actual porn, though the language is still pretty filthy and there's a lot of moaning, so remember -- NSFW.

Conan Shares Intimate Moment With Google Glass [Video]

Somewhere in an alternate universe, Emma Stone's character from Crazy Stupid Love is super jealous.

Have you ever wanted to know what the inside of  Conan O'Brien's mouth looks like? Jeremy Hofferman knows firsthand, and thanks to his Google Glass, now so do all of us. Hofferman was waiting for an E3 panel when the talk show host walked by, presumably there to film segments for his show (does this mean we're going to get a Clueless Gamer at E3? Let's hope so!). Conan noticed the Google Glass, jokingly suggested that they make out, and the rest is Internet history. Speaking of which, I wonder how many make outs start out as jokes? Probably at least a fifth of them, I bet.

Google Glass Puts Kibosh on Porn Apps, Disappoints Perverts Worldwide

The Internet may be for porn, but Google Glass is only being developed for good, wholesome web-surfing, according to a policy update from Google.

In news that will no doubt come as a blow to many of the Internet's more sex-crazed denizens, developers for Google have 86ed pornographic apps for Google Glass in an update of its policies earlier this week. We can all sleep easier knowing that the guy on the bus is not looking at people's naughty bits, but narcissistically checking his Facebook feed, which is more noble and dignified than watching a skin flick...for reasons that I'm sure I will think of eventually.

Google Glass Just Got a Little Less Creepy, It Won’t Recognize Faces

Google announced that it won't be accepting apps for Glass that recognize faces -- at least not yet.

Are everyone's concerns settled? It's not that simple, Google.

New Google Glass App Hopes to Be Being John Malkovich for Porn

No one's surprised to see Google Glass being used for porn, but how it's being used for porn is a little surprising.

Google Glass has raised some interesting questions of etiquette. When is it rude to wear a camera on your face? What are acceptable uses for the wearable technology in public? One thing I think everyone can agree on is that watching porn in public makes you a creep, but that doesn't mean it won't be an option for Glass users. There's obviously already a porn app for Glass.
