Google Glass And 'Eden of the East', Or How Anime Sees the Near Future

Serdar Yegulalp: ''Technophiles and gadget fans watched with popped eyes earlier this week as Google demonstrated a detailed demo of their new concept gadget, Google Glass. Among the concepts: taking a picture of an object or building, and identifying it via an Internet search. In other words, exactly the sorts of things that were being done with the titular search technology in the series Eden of the East (compare prices).

Actually it wasn't just Eden that came to mind with Google Glass. So did Fractale, which had leapt to mind before when Google did their first Glass demos. That series featured an entire world being held hostage, Matrix-style, by a kind of virtual reality prison which was so comfortable most people didn't want to leave. (The most dangerous cage of all is a comfy one.)'' (Anime, Eden of the East)
