Google Inc (GOOG): Glass App Turns a Flirt Into a Photo

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is getting quite a bit of buzz in the tech world, and especially among developers, with its Glass project, which is one of the more public device beta tests known to man – no thanks to Sergey Brin, of course. Recently, Google sent Google Glass to developers to get them started on creating the interactive environment within Google Glass. But what if your forget that you have the Glass on your head, and you catch that really attractive person on the street? Should you wink?

If you do, the saying goes, “Take a picture; it will last longer.” OK, you will. And you just did.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is continuing to work on the new wearable computer, but there is already at least one app that will enable to capture a photo of that hot guy or gal and save the image forever. Say hello to Winky, a Google Glass app that apparently is designed to allow a Google Glass user merely to wink and the picture will be taken of whatever object at which the user was winking. So I guess this means now that, when you tell your friends, “I saw this really hot chick at the coffee shop today,” and they don’t believe you (because they know your history with women), you can now prove it to them.

It might just be a good idea, though, not to take multiple pictures at once if the first one didn’t come out. That might look like a nervous tick, and there goes the flirtation.

Though Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) isn’t expected to release Google Glass until next year, there have been a few apps developed so far, and Winky – created by developer Mike DiGiovanni – is one that has been tested in some degree. IN fact, DiGiovanni himself  wrote about his experience with Google Glass on his Google+ page, writing, “I’ve taken more pictures today than I have the past 5 days thanks to this. “Sure, they are mostly silly, but my timeline has now truly become a timeline of where I’ve been.”

Do you have thoughts about Winky? And what are your thoughts about Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and its ongoing pursuit of Google Glass? Can this be the new phenomena in tech, or the direction tech will be going in the long-term? Give us your feedback in the comments section below.
