    Because this is my first post, I would like to say Hello.

    Next I would like to hear some of the thoughts of my esteemed fellows on the subject of Google Glass.

    If you have yet to see or hear of it, here is its website: g.co/projectglass

    There's also, the funny and dishearteningly honest parody: Here

    Thanks.

    Glad you put in the parody. I would've if you hadn't.

    I can imagine how such a device might just possibly be helpful to people with some forms of disability. For the rest of us?

    Here is an update on Google Glass:

    Google's futuristic glasses move closer to reality (Update 2)

    You can order your $1500 prototype if you are a developer, which you will get at the beginning of next year. When they are released in 2014, they will be "more expensive than a smartphone".

    I can see employers ending up using something like that to check up on their staff. Though I think that the idea of having a factory full of workers forced to where these does not sit well with me. Whilst this can kind of technology can seem just like a bit of fun there are implications here that could see it used in ways that could effectively lead to the end of privacy.

    I don't get it-why anyone would want that kind of connection all the time--addiction?

    How do the eyes focus on something that close anyhow?

    I think that this would be bothersome. A screen in your face.
