I see Google is appealing to the Apple market.
I am fiving the white box of denial because it seems very appropriate. I despise the audacity that Google would even try and invent a spam delivery system that you wear on your face, but not as much as I will despise it's 99% unquestioned adoption rate by the purely stupid of our species.

Truly horrifying. I can't wait till I get wired in to receive automatic updates on how many Starbucks are near me at any given time or get my Twitter feed directly implanted into my hippocampus.

Five big ones for Google thinking that a guy who would wear one of it's computers on his face would have a sexual partner other than his left hand.
He plays ukelele left-handed, so don't you mean his right hand?
There's ukelele and Manhattan in this, for Christ's sake. Are we not meant to believe that this shit parodies itself?
Wait.... is Google smart enough to know that this kind of self-parody gives it more exposure?
So, he's a Gargoyle?
Exactly what I thought Mr. Stabface, exactly what I thought.
I already leave my non-smart-cellphone at home frequently because I find it too obnoxious. Although, as someone that uses public transportation frequently, it's clearly a feeling that others don't share.

When I look at someone, will it tell me whether I should kill them?

I'm so stupid that I can't find my way around a bookstore, and too lazy to ask somebody who works there. Thank god my technospekz obey my commands!
Wow I never thought I'd hear such dumb things come out of all of your mouths. Are you that unimaginative to not see the NON-mundane implications of this?
Yes, its a waste if youre just going to use it like a smartphone, nobody is arguing against that. I want to see what independant developers can do with this stuff, or homebrew people.
No, I see that something like this could become very useful, and be adopted by a large portion of society. If it were just a personal assistant that you wear, and was packaged in a small, subtle form, and had a less invasive -- or at least, highly peronalizable-- interface, it could be FUCKING AWESOME. Right now, the part of my brain that never let go of childhood dreams of jetpacks and personal androids is jumping up and down and shouting like a 300lb unwashed manchild at an anime convention.
However, this is a google project. So you know it's gonna track your every move, your every picture, every purchase, every like, and it might even note your gaze -- do you linger longer on signs of a certain type, boobs or asses of a certain size and shape, faces of people if a certain color or fashionableness?
It's going to be basically google's means of leeching personal information off of you 24-7, so they can sell it/direct highly personalized ads at you on your phone and computer. And you know this thing is going to have fucking ads too, sooner or later.
You can turn the ads off by becoming a Premium Glass member!
I agree, dead cat, the implications are pretty fucking evil. The only way this would ever find its way onto my face is if it was "jailbroken", or whatever you'd call it. I dont even know what it looks like or if it even has much storage capacity, or if itll be google cloud-driven so you can't actually do anything without their express involvement. Lets hope this technology can also be used for good.
Also, I dread the day people start driving with these things on. For fucks' sake.
You're so right, Gmork. Now I can finally ride my Segway with Augmented Reality google goggles! Aren't you riding your Segway? It changed the world!
so essentially we're eventually going to be living in the opposite world of They Live. can't wait to be the guy who's wearing "old glasses", cause he has "eye problems".
I think we'll be living in this world:
I see I can now check "make everyone wears stupid visors" off my agenda to turn the world into a 70s dystopia movie.
