I can't decide if this will ever be socially acceptable - to start Joe Public won't really know what it is, but once it's popular will everyone think you're spacing out on Twitter while in conversation?

Easy, you put the twitter feed and reply box in the middle bottom left and right of the glasses. Thus forcing the user to go "cross eyed"........hey presto.......you know when people aren't fully involved in your convo. Rude twitter junkies!!!

I thought the FDA said they weren't allowed a wireless transceiver so close the skin but you could get around it using the bluetooth transcever to tether it to your phone for internet access? Unless these are the Euro specs and different laws?

Also when will spec savers be doing google glasses glasses as I don't get on well with contacts

I'd find these really useful in a laboratory, thus why I'll get a pair, also useful for the live maps, so you can look at it when you need it, rather than have a fully fledged sat nav.

They need to be attached to some glasses that don't make you look like a treky.

I am liking this more and more each time I see something about it, but I have heard that apparently there will be a quite a few places which won't allow them to be worn or used when in that place.

I think it'll be just like having mobile phones. It'll be geeky at first and then gradually people will realise the benefit and join in. Personally, I'd like to be an early-adopter.

I think one of the first non-social-network-type applications that will really grab people is having maps available as you're walking/driving. No more having to glance at paper maps or a device on your dashboard, you'll have maps in a heads-up display.

The possibilities are endless.

Great so the times that I'm not using to record a video, I get to stare at the time all day.

[only wear them then when you want to take a POV picture/video]

No different from an ordinary camera then but lower quality.

[its hands free though]

So is a Go-pro and I have a feeling (albeit I haven't looked at the figures) that the Go-pro will be better quality.

It's a great gimmick that I'll probably end up buying myself one day

Sadly, unless they do them with prescription lenses, I won't be able to use them

I'd love to see how good these are for Sat-Nav while driving. Should be like your own heads up display.

I'm assuming they'll work if you wear contact lenses.

I think I saw somewhere that they're going to make prescription glass too. And so I'm uber excited.

I think this technology has criminals and terrorists scared. Imagine, someone could be recording a crime and not even knowing it. Especially with face recognition.

Not sure how this sits with me.

It's going to feel like everyone is a walking security camera. Least with a phone its fairly obvious people are taking a picture.

Not that I have anything to hide but it just seems a bit invasive.

I've just realised..... I'll be able to catch everyone who uses a mobile while driving on film.
I wonder how many dangerous drivers I can report to the police?
