    "If Google Glass does indeed contain the tech in the prototypes we have seen, there is little doubt that they will change that negative image stigma."

    And that goes for the entire 'wearable technology' stigma, not just bone conducting headphones. Google Glass will really have to be cool to counter act how unfashionable it is to wear technology. The only thing that's not dorky are ear-buds and headphones. The Bluetooth headset and cell phone holster look more like accessories to a bad super-hero costume than they look like a fashion statement.

    Google will have quite the challenge to make sure these things don't look like a prop from Back to the Future part II. But what do I know... large-framed glasses and bow-ties are now 'cool' thanks to LaBron and company. Maybe I'm the dork.

    Your head turns into a speaker, brain-liquefying reality :)

    Probably also sends in subliminal idea of "must pray Google" :)
