  1. Don’t want to wait another year for Google Glass to drop? Or perhaps you didn’t have $1,500 to spare when the Explorer edition kits were available for pre-order last year? Apparently neither did an Australian techie so he did the...

  6. Ash_Williams here, actually it's not that bad, wearing it for 3 days full-time now and it's honestly not bad. First day I had a massive headache but the following days it was completely normal!

    lol man there's a reason you had headaches the first day, and if it goes away after 3 days it doesn't mean it's healthy now.

    The weight and shape of the frames alone can cause headaches. Thats nothing new for condemning the thought of wearing any glasses. And if that is the case, it has nothing to do with unhealthy concepts regarding the eyes.

    These things all combine to produce an unhealthy device:
    - You're looking unnaturally at upward angle.
    - The 'screen' is way too small.
    - The depth of the screen is way too close to eyes.

    This all applies to Google Glass too. It's a flawed product.

    And yet it's clearly a Nokia N9 in the first picture...

  13. Seeing as this guy isn't the first person to hook a MyVu to some glasses I'm not sure what the fuss is about...
