Although, I like the concept behind the Glass I just don't find it that practical. I think there's going to be some good uses for it and most of those are in the video. I don't see a value in it for every moment of every day use.
If people can get over the general perceived dorkiness, these will be AWESOME.
I'm more than intrigued by this. But the price point is going to be a huge deal since it won't replace a tablet/pc. If it's not sub $600 I don't see it being that popular.
Btw, price point is high now ($1,500), but I imagine it will come down once/if it hits the mass market. It looks freaking awesome though.
I'm confused... I can already do all of that stuff with my enhanced eye.
Edit: Oh shit! Forget you read this... not supposed to say anything til 2023! Sometimes the wires into the brain **** with the cognitive functions.
Wait til I get some and the Chinese hackers get to watch me **** 8 times a day...
Nothing more annoying than a random stranger standing next to you and start asking a question and you try to not be rude so you respond. Only to find out the jackamo is wearing a BT headset with both his hands free and you feel like a dang fool
Also, I do see downside, the POV from the girl. Don't think there are to many guys who want to see what it's like to have a nut blown on their face.

They're cool, but I was assuming they were going to enable virtual reality and a full-screen (full-field, I guess) web browser.
I'll probably pick this up right after I buy a Nexus Q and sign up for Google+. Can't wait to share videos from it with all my friends on Google Wave.
Best thing that can come out of this will be the videos from inside a player's helmet. It will shut some people up who think they could step out there and find the open receiver.
What's up with this hotlink shit?
So it's a voice activated helmet cam? okay...
How about realtime translation subtitles? That would be cool, because I could finally understand what the **** teenagers are saying. Swag to English.
Is the goal for us to not experience anything first hand anymore? For it all to be experienced through a lens as if we're watching a movie, detached from what is happening right in front of us?
In the next 25-50 years we'll be able to essentially upload your consciousness into a hard drive, and you can download in real time the experiences and knowledge of every human and computer hooked up to the network. The Baby Boomers are the last generation that will experience death. The rest of us will live forever on a server in some remote storage facility.
