The future is here. NOT!

Google yesterday released a concept video about their augmented reality glasses/goggles:

Everybody has been talking about it. Is it the future? Or is it too good to be true?  Here are a couple of parody videos of what might be the actual user experience with such glasses.  The first is the problem with it getting your speech commands wrong and then you having to bump into an accident and hurt yourself and others:

This other one shows what the now-evil Google will actually do to your display: a ton of ads and mostly links to other Google services (even if they're not the best service out there).

P.S. This is what the glasses might look like.  Ignore the smiles and the use of carefully selected models.
