Now that Google Glass is a much-talked about, much-hyped tech thing, the pseudo-clones have already started to emerge, meaning it's only time before there's a Google Glass variation for everyone and everything. Dogs already have their very own wearable computers, and so do "porn enthusiasts," who need a separate pair because Google has banned sex videos from its version. And this is just the beginning, Google Glass Regular just came out a few months ago and already "companies and researchers are trying to decide what will be the next big breakthrough in wearable technology," Technology Review's Rachel Metz notes. Not all of these things will go on people (or animals or plants) faces, but no doubt we will declare them the Google Glass of ________.
Some of the spawn of Google Glass will indeed look a lot like computer glasses. Like the porn version, which has more of a goggle look, but at least slides onto one's face. Inevitably, however, things that aren't glasses, but some sort of vaguely related wearable tech, will get the association, too—even if it's undeserving. Google Glass for dogs, for example, is a sensor that dogs wear to communicate with their owners. There's nothing really Glass-like about that.
