In a recently aired episode of The Simpsons called “Specs And The City,” the residents of Springfield get a taste of Google Glass, and as expected adopt the new form of technology as soon as it is out. The smart glasses are called ‘Oogle Googles’ in the show, and although we are yet to check out the episode, the trailer looks promising enough.

Talking about the latest episode, Huffington Post reports that it’s Mr Burns (Homer Simpson’s boss) who gifts his employees ‘Oogle Goggles’ to keep an eye on thefts in the office.
Creator Matt Groening’s series makes fun of the whole situation in its very original and sarcastic way, which is one of the reasons why we love the show. The promo, posted below, shows how Homer gets used to his new glasses and keeps them on always, the ups and downs of which in real life can be found here and here respectively, while you can have a look at our Google Glass review too.
