A new study from the University of Waterloo in Canada has concluded that dogs looks even more ridiculous than people when wearing Google Glass.

“Wearable computer is clearly the future,” said lead researching Avery Bayard, citing the aforementioned Glass, as well as Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smartwatch. “But the manufacturers have work to do to make them attractive.”

According to their research, a majority of people thought that Google Glass just looked strange on those wearing it.  That number was even more pronounced for dogs.

“There are definitely advantages to these devices,” said Bayard, “but fashion isn’t one of them.”
