    This looks really cool.

    But, I wonder how long it'll be before this is the next thing every school "needs"...

    I used Google Glass: the future, but with monthly updates | The Verge

    But the feature everyone is going to go crazy with — and the feature you probably most want to use — is Glass’ ability to take photos and video with a "you are there" view. I won’t lie, it’s amazingly powerful (and more than a little scary) to be able to just start recording video or snapping pictures with a couple of flicks of your finger or simple voice commands.

    At one point during my time with Glass, we all went out to navigate to a nearby Starbucks — the camera crew I’d brought with me came along. As soon as we got inside however, the employees at Starbucks asked us to stop filming. Sure, no problem. But I kept the Glass’ video recorder going, all the way through my order and getting my coffee. Yes, you can see a light in the prism when the device is recording, but I got the impression that most people had no idea what they were looking at. The cashier seemed to be on the verge of asking me what I was wearing on my face, but the question never came. He certainly never asked me to stop filming.

    Indeed. There's very little gadgetry that I want, but this is definitely on that list. But! It must be able to work with my glasses.

    Really looking forward to this but I assume it won't initially be launched at a comfortable price... how much would everyone pay for this sort of thing?

    Its currently roumored to be $1500(£990) although a recent article has suggested it will be less(didn't say how much less). I think £500 would be more realistic but still not really in the realms of affordable for what it is.

    Don't think I'll be getting one for personal use until it comes down to £250ish, may stretch to £350

    I hope it gets face recognition abilities, would be nice to avoid those 'who is this person I’m talking to?' situations

    Its interesting seeing the difference in comments here compared to a non-geek place (like the DailyMail site). There, they slag them off as 'sad' and 'what's the point?' and then somehow relate them to immigration...

    Tie it to a "known illegal-immigrant" database, with photos.
    Setup facial recognition. [Optional app?]
    Scan everyone's face as you pass them, and send time-stamped location of illegals to immigration.

    "Big brother"-esqe, but could be handy. It could also work with people who have outstanding warrents and people who have skipped bail.

    AR would be a feature I'd like to see. I like the look of the maps and HUD directions.

    I wonder what the law and driving with them on would be like, no use like mobile phones? I can imagine a screen popping up whilst driving to be very distracting.

    Depending on what you have running, it may be the same as a BMW 3-Series. [BMW is the only one I know by name. There's others as well.]
