In a clip posted to Instagram, Zuckerberg movies the again of his daughter’s head utilizing the video recording function embedded throughout the sensible glasses he is sporting. He says “Hey Meta, how do you make a braid?” and somewhat voice walks him by means of three steps: brush the hair, separate it into three elements, cross the appropriate part over the center, then the left, and proceed.
He ties the top of the braid with such issue that it is clear he is by no means completed his ladies’ hair earlier than (Zuckerberg has three daughters). As a last step, he asks the glasses to take a photograph of his handiwork and ship it to Priscilla, his spouse, who’s presumably busy co-running the couple’s charitable group, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
If the video is meant to indicate customers how Meta’s Good Glasses can be utilized of their on a regular basis lives, it would not fairly succeed. Meta AI would not seem any extra helpful or handy than current digital assistants like Siri and Alexa.
And the image Zuckerberg despatched to his spouse might have simply been taken with a telephone and despatched by way of textual content message in just some extra seconds, with out the hand-free assist of the glasses.

As he hand-scoops sticky cookie dough onto a baking sheet, Zuckerberg asks his Good Glasses to take a photograph of the dollops and ship it to Priscilla with the message, “Are these the appropriate dimension?” Whereas the cookies bake within the oven, Zuckerberg asks the glasses to play music from Spotify. The glasses’ open design allows him to take heed to music with out waking the newborn, or lacking her hungry cries when she wakes up.
In a demo like that, the glasses might sound type of cool and helpful. However Zuckerberg’s video makes them seem to be a gadget your dad orders off Amazon to play with in his retirement. A really #girldad transfer, when you ask us.
