A group of elders try Google Glass for the very first time (video)


Google Glass may be taking the world by storm but that doesn’t mean everyone is completely aware of Mountain View’s new wearable. Just because people have heard of something, doesn’t mean they’re completely familiar with it. Mountain View’s famous eyewear might be making its mark on popular culture, however it’s yet to fully reach the elderly.

We’re talking about a generation that’s slowly adopting touchscreens and social media. So what happens when you give people from this group a hands-on experience with a wearable computer? A group of YouTubers known as The FineBrothers have produced a video of elders interacting with Glass for the very first time and while some of them knew right away what they were looking at, the transition from observer to user wasn’t exactly smooth.
