    This thread is funny seeing as Google Glass is clearly a techno-widget gimmick and going to flop fairly hard.

    I'm sure Glass will find it's niche but it will be small and the product's hype overblown, and it's adoption low and uneventful.

    If I even see a pair of them being worn by someone going about their business where I live I'll pay up £100.
    D'ya think? I'm not so sure; people love stuff that makes it easier for them to do what they want, no matter how small the difference between that and the old tech. Look at the way that Instagram has taken off, as well as the way phone manufacturers place importance on phones coming with a camera attached. This just seems like another step forward to me.

    Think of the Powerglove for gaming, how many people are going to wear a goofy bit of headgear? I could be wrong but I'm sceptical.

    Plus having that little screen constantly within your field of vision would get annoying.

    The great thing about mobiles aside from covering a wide variety of things you want/need (time-keeping, camera, etc as you said) is that when you don't need it you put it back in your pocket.


    Who knows, time will tell.

    It brings us one giant step closer to becoming one of the fat people in floating chairs from WALL-E, that's my main concern.
