[Expert] What do Playstation 4 and Google Glasses tell us about the future of television?
Two major announcements yesterday: the presentation of the Playstation 4, the new video game console from Sony, and that of the Google Glasses.

The two objects will be released between the end of the year and 2014. The revolution is near.
