There are multiple companies developing some very cool AR systems for firefighters, and other areas have taken this sort of thing up already, there are tech goggles for skiing and snowboarding with GPS and heads up displays.

I think just like anything else, there will be good and bad, just like there are good and bad uses for everything we already have in our cell phones and are constantly carried with us.

Having your hands free and being in your line of sight will actually help a lot of the situations where people are currently morons with their phones already.

I can't wait until hordes of people on Slashdot start arguing about Glass vs. the iWatch.

There are bars already banning them.

Honestly I can see people saying it's ridiculous and they won't use it, and then in five years not being able to live without one.

"Glass- directions." - directions appear on road.

"Glass- movie times"- movie times appear before your eyes

"Glass- recipe" - cook with the recipe right there

I don't know, could see people getting hooked with the convenience.

Personally, still don't own a smart phone, so it could be a good while before I get something like this. Plus I definitely see people's hesitation with this tech, especially being able to take a photo or video at all times.

And then wear them while playing light-gun games and make sure you raise your off-hand when firing!

Along comes a new generation who grow up with it and wonder how people ever lived without it.

Sigh,

I think this will be the blue tooth headset of 2013. It might be great when your alone, but you'll look like a pillock wearing one in a group of people. It just sends the message that your more interested in your phone than the people who are in the room with you.

Yeah... the phrase "I saw something on youtube..." is the worst thing I heard when a group is talking. So what? Everybody has youtube. Give us some rest from the digital world.

It will take voice rcognition to get a lot better before I'll be interested, and I mean A LOT.
Even unaccented and with great pronunciation a keyboard can't be replaced yet, and I have no intention of lobbing around glasses, their case and a bluetooth headset all the time if I already have to have a smartphone in my pockets.

I'm not adverse to the idea though, and am glad someone's doing it.
The fact Google is doing it doesn't mean having to wear their glasses in the future, it means glasses in general as a personal device will become an option in the longer run.

I am actually really impressed with google now's voice recognition. It is the first time I have seen a device understand %90 of the things I say, even when using long sentences.

I could not agree more, but I can't help being really pesimist about this. Of course it has a great potential, but let's face it. Even before anyone can do anything useful with it, it's gonna be full of ads and adverts. I really don't need people around me watching their facebook or tweeter while I'm talking to them. It's rude enough when they check whatsapp or whatever.

And I agree, it's not the tech's fault, but sadly, we know it's a new space brands are going to invade to get you buying shit 24/7. I think ads are way more invasive than they should be as it is...

So am I (nexus 4), kicks the living daylight out of dragon, siri and all else.
It's still 90% or thereabout on a good day, and SOME words, especially if you are multilingual like me, and therefore will have some names in your address book and words in your grocery shopping list, you just can't get in, and there's no option to "train" it. Not that I'd bother anyway.

When dealing with a personal device's input, you need the means, and fallbacks for when the first tier means don't succeed, to hit absolutely 100%.

I have successfully dictated an entire mail with no re-dos once. That was satisfying.

I don't want to pass judgment before using it, but I'm not sure how great it'll be watching something from one eye. Looks good on a video, but how does it look when I'm the one wearing the glasses.

This is a much more real representation of Google Glass's future IMHO. Quite scary really...
