The Fall of Google Glass 谷歌玻璃的坠落
 
在计算机和信息的发展初期,计算机的内存、加载空间和加载速度是主要的限制。然而随着时间推移到21世纪,这些问题都得到了解决。然后新的问题出现了,计算机如何能够收集尽可能多的信息进行分析。根据Billinghurst和Starner(1999),可穿戴设备是最好的答案。尽管最早的可穿戴设备可以追溯到20世纪70年代,但第一个真正引起普遍关注的现代可穿戴设备是谷歌玻璃,它于2012年首次上市,谷歌最近宣布,目前的谷歌玻璃浏览器版硬件将仅在Janu之后提供给商业客户。Ary19,尽管据报道谷歌正在开发新版本的Glass,将于今年晚些时候发布。自从谷歌在最初的激情过后对其表现发表了大量负面评论以来,业界就预测到谷歌的这一举动会很艰难。那么好奇又来了,为什么在可穿戴设备发展的热度和趋势下,像谷歌玻璃探索者这样吸引了全世界关注和兴趣的先锋产品突然倒下了呢?
At the beginning of development of computer and information, the major limitation used to be the memory, load space and loading speed of computer. However, as time moves to the 21st century, these problems have been all solved. Then new problem occurs, how computer could gather as much information as possible to analysis. According to Billinghurst and Starner (1999), wearable device is the best answer. Though the earliest wearable devices could trace back as early as 1970s, the first real modern wearable device that attracts universal attention is Google Glass, which firstly introduced to public in 2012 and Google recently announced to that the current Google Glass Explorer Edition hardware will only be available to business customers after January 19, though Google is reportedly working on a new version of Glass for release later this year. Tough this move of Google has been predicted by the industry since tons of negative comments on its performance after the initial passion. Then curiosity occurs, why under the fever and trend of wearable devices development, pioneer product such as the Google Glass Explorer, which attracts attention and interest of the whole world, suddenly falls? 
谷歌玻璃于2012年4月首次上市。它结合了许多功能,使生活更容易和更方便,包括智能手机,GPS,照相机,拍摄和加载图片,发送和接收短信,检查天气,无需手上网,并使用语音控制拍照,通话和拍摄方位。在2012年首次亮相后,这是一款必备的玩具,将为新一代可穿戴电脑设定黄金标准。
Google Glass was firstly introduced to public in April 2012. It combines many functionalities on the purpose of making live easier and more convenient, including smart phone, GPS, camera, taking and loading pictures, send and receive text messages, check the weather, surf the Internet without hands, and use voice control to take picture, call, and take bearings. After it was firstly unveiled in 2012, It was the must-have toy that was going to set the gold standard for a new class of wearable computers. 
然而,就在它首次亮相两年后,谷歌玻璃宣布关闭。主要有三个原因。首先,谷歌玻璃在上市时并没有完全完成。根据《纽约时报》(2015年)的报道,玻璃的致命功能遭到了激烈的争论,比如它是否应该全天佩戴,它如何处理隐私条件等。可以肯定的说,谷歌向公众推出了一款过早的产品。难怪市场终于发现了这些弱点,停止了购买。其次,价格太高。虽然从一开始到现在,它一直被宣布为公共实验期。它的价格高达1500美元,大约相当于两部最新的iPhone。价格证明它的销售地点是一个很酷的玩具。当公众不再对它好奇时,媒体报道它实际上并不那么友好或有用。酷玩具变得不酷。越来越少的人愿意花这么多钱买它。第三,苹果首席执行官蒂姆•库克(Tim Cook)表示,尽管可穿戴设备是技术发展的不可替代趋势,但谷歌玻璃(Google Glass)的入侵性太强。因此它注定要失败。他和苹果手表团队认为,可穿戴设备的一个关键点是它应该成为用户日常生活的一部分,是人体的一种扩展,当人们不注意到它时,它会使人们的生活变得更容易和更方便。这也解释了为什么在巨大的可穿戴设备中,大多数开发者选择手表,如三星Gear、苹果手表等。
However, only two years after its debut, Google Glass is announced to shut down. There are three major reasons. Firstly, Google Glass itself is not fully completed when it was introduced to public. According to The New York Times (2015) report, the killer functionality of the Glass suffered fierce argument such as if it should be wearing all day, how it deals with privacy conditions, etc. It is safe to say that Google brought a premature product to the public. It is no wonder that the market finally finds out these weaknesses and stops buying. Secondly, the price is too high. Though from the beginning to now, it is always announced as the public experimental period. It costs as much as USD1500, which roughly equals two latest iPhone. The price proves that its marketing location is a cool toy. When the public ceases to curious on it, and media reported it actually not so user friendly or useful. The cool toy becomes not cool. Less and less people would like to pay such big amount of money on it. Thirdly, according to Tim Cook, the Chief Executive Officer of Apple, though wearable device is the unavailable trend of technology development, Google Glass is too invasive. Therefore it dooms to fail. According to him and the team of Apple Watch, one of the key points of wearable device is that it should be a part of the users daily life, an expansion of human body, which makes people’s life easier and more convenient when they don’t even notice. This also explains that why during the tremendous wearable devices, most developers select watch, such as Samsung Gear, Apple Watch, etc. 
因此,由于缺乏杀伤力的应用和过早的开发,价格居高不下,产品理论本身也太具有侵入性,这违背了日常生活习惯,谷歌玻璃公共实验最近被宣布为商业领域的一次失败。虽然未来谷歌玻璃第二阶段的功能更强大、更完善仍然是合理的,也可能在外科医生、犯罪现场警察等方面具有很大的研究潜力
Therefore, due to lacking of killer application and premature of its development, price is two high, and the product theory itself too invasive, which against daily life habit, Google Glass public experiment was recently announced to as a failure in the commercial field. Though it is still reasonable to expect a more powerful and more completed Google Glass phase two in future, or it may enjoys great potential on research purpose such as associating doctors during surgeons, police on crime scene.
