A. J. Jacobs ha fatto con i Google Glass quelle cose che Google sconsiglia di fare. Come leggere qualcosa di molto lungo, nello specifico caso Moby Dick:
I start to read. It’s both strange and wonderful. The words float against the sky above the Saw Mill River Parkway. The text is so close to my eyes, the book feels like it’s inside my brain. I’m in my own secret world, like the kid with the flashlight under the blanket, but without the flashlight or blanket. After forty-five minutes, I get an ice-pick headache and have to stop.
