    They appear to be coming out with a couple of options 1 being a pair of frames you can prescription lenses put in and a clip on version to attach to your own frames.

    I want a left sided clip mount glass.

    I'd rather clean my teeth with a chainsaw myself, but to each their own.

    I remain unconvinced with this technology and its usefulness for now, same for the smart watches being touted around at the moment, cost a lot of money for something which just seems to be hype related largely at this stage, it doesnt have any "wow factor" at least in as far as convincing me I really want one bad

    I'd love a pair... I can't wait for the price to be announced. I've already had it agreed if they're under $300 I can get a pair :-)

    You did.

    The Explorer Edition cost $1,500, but these are only available to a limited number of people.

    I always feel really cheated for having been born in the 1950's. By the time all this wearable technology, or even implants, become as normal as smartphones, I'll be long gone, dust to ashes. I would love it all and embrace it whole-heartedly.

    I always wanted to be Takeshi Kovacs, even before I read the books.

    I would not want to spend any time hanging out with anyone wearing google glass. I find the idea that they can record you without your knowledge pretty scary (they don't have a red "recording" LED like most cameras do) and if I saw someone wearing a set in public I would request that they remove them (this would be the same if I saw them videoing or photographing me against my will using their smartphone). If I thought they'd be more prevalant, I'd even be campaigning to ban them in public places until they have proper indicators to show other people when pictures or video are being captured by the user. As it is, I think they'll be a flash-in-the-pan gimmick which will die off in a year or two like the minidisc. I haven't seen any practical uses for them yet that I couldn't already do much easier with my smartphone.

    Also you seriously look like the worlds biggest idiot when you wear them. The only people who think wearing google glass makes you look cool are the people wearing google glass.

    Sorry to be so harsh, but I think people often get caught up in the whole "NEAT IT'S JUST LIKE STAR TREK!!!" side of the technology (which I can totally understand) without actually considering the social implications of devices like this.

    I largely agree, the ability of the wearer to secretly record others must be the biggest feature surely
