    I would be, if I didn't know that Google would immediately sell all of the visual information obtained from the glasses. It may just be me, but I'm not all that inclined to have everything I see during the day monitored by anyone but myself.

    Really cool technology but, if Google is still the type to want to sell everything about you, I might have to pass on giving them one more thing about me to sell.

    I foresee some issues with this, at least in its current state. From TIME's description:

    "With the half-inch (1.3 cm) display, which comes into focus when you look up and to the right..."

    (http://techland.time.com/2012/11/01/best-inventions-of-the-year-2012/slide/google-glass/)

    People can hardly walk or drive looking down at a phone as it is. icon_razz.gif

    I'll get it when they make a model that gets implanted into my cornea.

    I've been predicting for about 10 years that the next "big thing" (as big as personal computing) will be interfacing digital technology directly with our own nervous system. The sort of thing displayed but not using glass. The icons would appear directly in your peripheral vision.

    Technological man is becoming The Borg and so far as I can tell, resistance is futile.

    I realize that this is, in fact, a parody of the Apple fandom, but still...

    I also envision this becoming HIGHLY road-illegal. Distracting to the point of vehicular manslaughter much? That and people walking into oncoming traffic.

    It's a nice concept but I don't see it becoming popular within the next 20 years

    Because people aren't distracted enough already. I can see an idiot walking out in front of a semi because he was checking his facebook... and then there's the idiot driving the semi that did not see the pedestrian because he was checking his facebook.
