There are a lot of varying opinions floating around the Internet about Google’s Project Glass from early adopters who were lucky enough to get their hands on a set, but regardless of how you feel about it, Google is turning...

I was really looking forward to glass until I saw this... I'm not so sure I want to be seen out in public tapping the hell out of the side of my face.

If you think it?s awkward standing next to someone with a Bluetooth headset while they seemingly talk to themselves, you may not like where this is going.
Yes, I think it's awkward. Glass sort of reminds me of a guy I see in the common area of my work some mornings. He's sitting at his laptop at a table facing the large area between the entrance and the elevators where everyone passes. Whenever I've seen him, he's looking up, never at his screen. He's not working, he's people watching. With Glass we won't be wondering who someone is talking to (like with a bluetooth headset), we'll be wondering who, or what they're looking at. And if they're facing us, we'll wonder if they're looking at us, and then we'll wonder if the camera is on.

Makes me glad I'm not a hot chick. :)

They're going to charge $1,500 for the first run of these things? for what? weather, pictures, and google+? Not to mention that battery pack hanging off the side of your head. I assumed it would be something you could mount to your actual glasses but this just looks ridiculous. Refine this commercial flop.

Cool. Now I can stand directly behind some knucklehead stranger using these things & see exactly what they're seeing. I wonder if they'll be offended if do the tapping & swiping for them if I find what they're looking at uninteresting.

I want these, they look cool, but yea I agree, I hope they have more features and phone compatibility.
Phone compatibility? I could be totally wrong about this, but I think you need an android phone to use Glass. If I remember right, Glass uses bluetooth to communicate with your phone, and your phone does all the heavy lifting. This way you won't need antennas in the glasses, and you can use a smaller battery.

WARNING when using Google glass

-When wearing this may lead people convinced you're in a deep serious mental health because you always said "ok, glass"

-Do not stare into the Sun while wearing Google glass as this may cause temporary blindness and/or future sight. If future sight does occur, please use your new power for good.
