People on the Street Don’t Know This Cheesy 90′s Headset Isn’t Google Glass [Video]

Comedian and filmmaker Mark Malkoff took to the streets of New York to find out what the average person thought of Google Glass, the wearable computers that not many people have had the pleasure of trying on. What these bystanders didn’t know was that the headset Malkoff was wearing wasn’t Google Glass; it was actually a gaming console from the 90s called an R-Zone.

The clunky headset made by Tiger Electronics in 1995 is about as attractive as an old pair of braces in the days before Invisalign. It doesn’t give directions as well as Google Maps, either. Though the video was only uploaded yesterday, more than 19,000 people have already watched it on Mashable’s channel, where viewers can’t believe the crazy reactions.
