    Default Coolest thing I saw all year... So far.

    We think technology should work for you—to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.

    A group of us from Google[x] started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do.

    Wow that is insanely cool. I wonder what we're looking at before we actually see that on the market? 5? 10years?

    Hard to say. Physicist/Futurist Michio Kaku says that chips are becoming so small and inexpensive to produce that he feels there will be information overlays on things as small as contact lenses within the next ten years.

    I'm pretty sure the guy in the video isn't an shotgun wielding Austrian robot. I could be wrong though.

    Hard to tell. You are looking out through his eyes. Or did he pass in front of a mirror or pane of glass?

    ignoring the fact it's called project glass.

    if it was implanted in his brain, he wouldnt have to speak at all seeing as it could read his thoughts.

    could you imagine than you could literally say you have a photographic memory... fuck man that's straight robocop shit.

    Well he isn't speaking with an Austrian accent. That might be a clue.

    900 bucks might be a bit much, 900 dollars is more like it. besides, where would you store them all?

    but, in all seriousness it's not going to be more than 700 bucks. I think that's the line probably past it where people say it's not worth it.

    plus, it's by google they aren't hurtin for money. they are more concerned about units sold than unit price.

    also, glasses alone cost a few hundred. i mean it can't be more than 650, i'm actually going to throw out $581.

    quick, everyone throw out a guestimation of how much it'll cost.

    the best ukulele ad I have ever seen...solid

    seriously though, this looks pretty amazing but I doubt it will be even close to how handy it is in the ad

    I feel it is going to be like Siri. Sorta cool but less practical then the ads made it seem.

    maybe I am wrong, but it looks a bit "too good to be true" like a lot of other things that turned out to be less amazing when they came out

    still though, pretty amazing advancement

    id say when it first comes out it is gonna be like 750

    The video is about a regular dude walking around doing regular stuff. Regular people probably can't justify spending $900 on a headset device. If Google marketed it like Apple does with their devices you'd probably see multiple versions. A more simple version priced at an easy entry price, then a medium version for people more serious in the tech and then finally the high end version. I think $900 would be too much for a high end version. The 64GB ipad 3 isn't even that much.

    Such a device could be revolutionary. It could be a smart phone killer.
