Here is my theory on the Spy Sunglasses becoming the next cool gadget: There are a lot of people out there who love to blog. They blog for many different reasons. Just to keep a journal of their day, or they blog to get an attempt of being famous. Let’s call the former Blogger-As and the latter Blogger-Bs. For both reasons, they will find that this sophisticated cool sunglasses might just be the next gadget that they will purchase.
Why do I say this? It is because people are generally lazy. Why bother typing your day out when you could just film it all down and upload it online? With the rise of YouTube and other free video sharing websites, uploading videos online is no longer an expensive option.
For Blogger-As who just want to keep a journal of their day, all they have to do is wear the Spy Sunglasses for the whole day and they will be reminded forever how exactly they spent their day. Where did they go and who they talked to (as long as they did not take off their Spy Sunglasses).
For Blogger-Bs who blog for an attempt of being famous, and if they even had a little success, their fans will definitely want to know how they spent their day because even though no one wants to admit it, everyone has some sort of voyeuristic nature in them.
Since Blogger-Bs basically has some form of influence over their fans, their fans will start to blog using Spy Sunglasses just because it seemed like the cool thing to do. No longer do people use it for surveillance or other incognito activities, everyone will get the Spy Sunglasses to blog.
Then suddenly it becomes the norm for everyone to have the Spy Sunglasses and the cool-factor begins to die off. People start abusing it to invade on other people’s privacy and the government will start to put restrictions on it.
By that time, this gadget has come a long way from being a relatively unknown gadget to this cool gadget and the fact that the government has acknowledged the existence of the Spy Sunglasses, it secures to be one of the coolest device ever made.
