"Pew Pew Pew". That could have been the activation phrase for Google Glass according to Product Manager Amanda Rosenberg, who unfortunately rejected it (among other phrases) for the now standard "OK, Glass" command.
The list of 'hotwords' also include the phrases "Listen up Glass", "Go Go Glass", "Glassicus" and "Glass alive". But we can do better, right?
Say the magic word
Naturally we tried to come up with our own activation phrases which are far better than either "OK, Glass" or the ones that didn't make the cut. We'd be happy for Google to use them all and look forward to our commission each time one is uttered.
Let us know what your Glass activation phrase would be in the comments below. But first, some inspiration.
