So as many of you know, Google is highlighting the recent creation Google Glasses today and I have to say I am impressed. While there are obvious roadblocks to the design (e.g. the current state of battery technology), this product truly has the potential to be disruptive. When I first saw the demonstration a year ago and placed my order through a Google developer friend, I was excited. Now I am thrilled. There is a great deal of potential in this product and can change the way we live life (anyone thinking video game style achievements for real life?). So are you on board with this idea ? Would you buy Google Glasses and would it encourage you to be more adventurous with your life ? Our would you use to just watch porn 24/7 ?

Exactly what market do you see this as being "disruptive" to?

Can these be made to prescription? I wear contacts, but what are people who need prescription glasses going to do?

Hopefully they make a tinted "flip-down" version that you can connect to your prescription glasses

I think Google is doing great things. This is just one example.

Seems amazing. But honestly you'd kinda look pretty nerdy with these. We'll see if it catches on.

Google glasses will never gain mass appeal because of the appearance. You'll never catch most females wearing those around town.

I'm not sure about that, if they've got 100 people working on it I have a feeling they want to turn the phone into a watch: http://www.forbes.com/sites/greatspeculations/2013...

They're definitely getting desperate though, they've really got to step it up if they're going to make it another 10 years.

Maybe the next step will be to fit all of that in a contact lens? Serious nanotechnology...

What keeps people from running up and shouting 'Google Image, Horse Porn, Open all in windows' or something when I'm walking down the street?

That's my skepticism with voice-activated products. It's also why I'm convinced that Siri will never be a game changer.

Yeah, I have the iPhone 4S and Siri is utter garbage. It's about 20 years away from being halfway decent.
