Note: it’s tech, sure, but through “The medium is the message”, what can we read into the glasses’ tech? It’s probably an ancestor of a direct link to the overmind: we have never been thinking alone, but we will soon have the availability of collective exchanges down to the millisecond. The future that is “already there” (William Gibson) is probably not the one you are futuristing (yes, futurists futurist, why not?).
Note 2: I am using “overmind” as the least charged word for this thing that is us over there in embryonic form (noosphere, omega, whatever: I can’t stress enough that nobody has a satisfying concept for it. Yet. But something made of parts that communicate at the millisecond level is certainly a thing.).
