Let the Glass parodies begin!
Wearing what looked more like a stapler than the high-tech Google Glass gadget, "Saturday Night Live" comedian Fred Armisen "demonstrated" how discretely Google's new gizmo can be used.
Appearing as tech blogger Randall Meeks, Armisen tried to show Weekend Update host Seth Meyers how to use the wearable computer, with a series of head twitches and repeated voice commands.
AllThingsD decribed Armisen's hilarious send up as "a kind of tech-induced Tourette’s Syndrome," but real world users will find Glass nothing like. FoxNews.com passed Google Glass out to at least two dozen people, none of which had that much trouble using it.
But as far as parodies go, that “White Men Wearing Google Glass” tumblr is pretty spot on, for now.
