    Read it this morning, well they have been talking about it for quite a while now but even though it is an interesting concept I don't think it'll sell. You really can't do anything u don't already do with ur smartphone and for this to work many things have to be worked out first: Battery life, better speech recognition software, has to work with glasses and sun glasses, it has to be light enough not to feel uncomfortable and text and images poping up in front of ur eyeball won't look nearly as neat as what was showed on this concept video.

    This kind of reminds me of Microsoft Courier, that perfect futuristic tablet that never left the lab.

    It doesn't make you look like robocop, but it does make you look stupid.

    *waits for better design of awesome concept*

    I thought for sure that at the end he was going to jump off the ledge. Holy fucking crap. Do people not enjoy their own thoughts anymore? An entire day of avoiding personal contact to enjoy 3 minutes of one on one time with his friend? And who's the cyberchic? Well, maybe it comes with a meditation app.

    I lived for the day when I could carry my crap around hands free and still interact with my friends electronically! Hope its like iPhones and they sell more first generations to the wealthy, so I can enjoy the better 2nd and 3rd generation gadgets with less kinks in the system. icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

    Probably won't sell, solely for the fact that glasses are for douchebags--get contact lenses.

    Until everyone has one, then like the smartphones, they take off and suddenly you change your mind, before you know it, and you rush to buy it, before you look the douchebag... oh, the reality of want, and illusion of control. sigh**
