    well looks like the glasses are $80.00 in parts but list for $1500
    of course Google INC reported to the wallstreet journal that is just not true.

    At $80 for parts very doable.

    no need to:
    one could predict prices will come down. Cant wait for the Logitech version

    Is the version of android it's running available for download? And whatever "glass" apps you'd need? ... Ok, so I read the article; it's running Android ICS. But you'd still need the "glass" apps, which I'll bet aren't out there for download?

    But I agree with their remark that google should be paying us to wear those stupid things.

    You'd have to be a complete idiot to wear this shit in the first place. The douche-factor on these things are through the roof.

    LOL. I love technology. But yeah, Glass is a bit overboard. Even if they shrank it down to something less noticeable, I can't see myself ever using it.

    Difficult to predict where Google Glass and similar wearable devices will go. Remember when everybody was wearing Bluetooth earsets for their cell phones? That fad seems to have died out pretty quickly. Nowadays when you see somebody wearing Bluetooth you think: "What a dweeb!"
