Fiction or Reality: Instagramming in Instaglasses

by Notorious Spinks on 07.03.2012

Instagram Instaglasses

One of my reasons for wanting the iPhone was Instagram.  I loved the idea of sharing pics with my friends and adding all kinds of funny captions.  So when I saw these Instaglasses I was like, “Whoa!”  I instantly thought about one of my favorite spy series, Alias, with actress Jennifer Garner.

Just imagine me in CIA mode, traveling the streets of Paris, Tokyo, and Milan snapping pictures for the safety of my country.  These terrorists would hate to see me coming in my jeans, Rees (Reeboks) and white tee.

Well I won’t go that far but you know what I mean.  A girl can dream can’t she? Who am I fooling, I would be shopping while pinning my favorite looks.

Instaglasses is a concept designed by German Designer Markus Gerke.  Here’s what the artist had to say about his design:

A week ago it appeared to me that with current technology like Google Glasses it would be possible to take applications like Instagram to a new level. Since I’m into graphics I took it to myself and realized it as a graphical concept.

According to Gerke, he does not intend to further this design.  It’s fictional only.  Umph….

Fictional only??? I can see myself rocking these babies and snapping pictures while sightseeing. This may “only” be fictional for Gerke but someone will be duplicating this design soon with a nice price tag. I can’t wait to see who…

What do you think?  Do you see Instaglasses as a reality or fiction only?
