Google Glass

I like the concept.

I would like to see this implemented into different things to make it practical.
Perhaps the windshield of my car or something for work while I'm moving around.
Not just googling info or taking pictures and videos, which is useful.
Something like Skype or Google Voice would be nice.
Or displaying articles.

woweee, dont want, but a fascinating new 'thing' ...

Here's the video from the article:



In the video he seems to be a bit negative about the design, in the article he raves about it:
The design of Glass is actually really beautiful. Elegant, sophisticated. They look human and a little bit alien all at once. Futuristic but not out of time — like an artifact from the 1960’s, someone trying to imagine what 2013 would be like. This is Apple-level design. No, in some ways it’s beyond what Apple has been doing recently. It’s daring, inventive, playful, and yet somehow still ultimately simple. The materials feel good in your hand and on your head, solid but surprisingly light. Comfortable. If Google keeps this up, soon we’ll be saying things like "this is Google-level design."

I saw something about them costing $1500. A bit out of my price range for another toy that I don't need. :( But, they're still looking pretty cool!

$1500, yes that is high for a camera.
Seems that is it's main function.

Now all I want is a device that will cause them to self-ignite whenever one comes within 50m.
