Will Google Glass Push Notifications Drive Us Mad?

At a recent SXSW presentation, Google’s Timothy Jordan demonstrated how push notifications are going to function with the impending Google Glass. A “mirror API” makes it easy to subscribe to popular news services, which can then push breaking news right to your headset. You can then read the news piece by tapping the Google Glass trackpad or simply looking up.

There’s no end to the speculation about Google Glass. What’s going to work, what’s not going to work, etc. This brings up another worry. Will Google Glass users be constantly bombarded by push notifications that are sent directly into their field of vision? Is it a benefit or a hindrance to have breaking news, emails, and social media updates pop up right in your face?

This is a question that can only be answered when the Google Glass Explorer Edition launches later this year. Shortly after that, we’ll get a version that supports prescription lenses. With a good chunk of the population wearing a computer on their face, we’ll be able to tell if we’re more productive and informed or more distracted than ever.
