VIDEO: 6 of the best parodies of Google's Project Glass

Google’s latest invention is the subject of some talk… and some jokes…

EARLIER THIS WEEK, Google revealed it’s latest endeavour, Project Glass, to much buzz and anticipation… and eventually some parodies.

Augmented reality glasses theoretically allow a person to check directions as they are walking around, take photographs, check in at places, message friends and essentially access all the information that they would through their phone right in front of their eyes.

The technology is still in development with the tech giant asking users for feedback on the video posted this week and which has so far received over 9.5 million hits.

But perhaps predictably some decided to take it a step further and produce videos making fun of Google’s goggles. Here’s a selection:

1. Cheating wife

You know how it is, you’re sitting there having a burger and you’re wondering where your wife is. Not far away as it turns out… and with someone else:

2. Annoying friend

It’s hard to avoid people you don’t like when you’re always connected:

3. Just another distraction

Google glasses are all well and good but they’re just hassle:

4. Dangerous

And they can be fatal:

5. More dangerous

Here’s what US TV comic Jimmy Kimmel made of Google’s latest invention:

6. Pop-ups, pop-ups and more pop-ups

They can be pretty annoying:
