The original plan was to compare the marketing and roll out to google glass and the “Glasshole” problem created thanks to tech elite but this conversation went down a completely different direction.

WE PROMISE: You won’t hear this type of discussion and debate about wearable technology, AR, VR or Spectacles anywhere else! 

Listen on iTunes here or below:

Discussed on this episode:

  • What kind of content will people create using these sunglasses?
  • Do we need more bad content from people’s points of view?
  • How can brands look at this new wearable opportunity and provide business value.
  • Do we have a posting too much to social media problem today, what will this type of technology create for tomorrow.
  • If we are watching this content or any social content from those in our circle of influence will we ever see the bigger picture or understand all sides of any issues.
  • Dan & Brian are fans of Spectacles but they question the types of content they’ll create or where they’ll find value.
