Google Glass Represents The New Age of ‘Tech Intimacy’

The development and launch of Google Glass could usher in an era of computer intimacy.

That’s according to comments made public Friday by Intuit Chairman Bill Campbell.

Campbell has also served as a member of Apple’s Board of Directors for 16 years, dating back to the 1997 return of Steve Jobs as Apple CEO.

Speaking at an event today inside of the Mountain View, California-Intuit headquarters, Campbell didn’t address Apple in great detail. But he did speak about Google Glass, suggesting that the technology represents a “blueprint” of sorts for the future.

Campbell did tell the audience to expect to see “a lot of things going on with the application of technology to really intimate things.” He pointed to Google Glass as one such intimate object. “It’s a phenomenal breakthrough,” he said. “When you start to think about glasses or watches, they become as intimate as the cell phone was.”

According to coverage from BusinessWeek, Campbell largely celebrated the fast-paced evolution of highly personal computing, suggesting that Google Glass is just the beginning of how intimate technology will eventually become.
