    Still a little too pricey for my taste though I do find them very interesting.

    Nah, really doesn't appeal to me. Price is extreme too, elite. Curious to see if they will ever make it affordable for the regular folks.

    I would probably pay like $200 for the novelty it. Definitely not $1500.

    I don't have time to play around with gadgets like I used too - so no point in being an early adopter. Maybe when they are $500 or less...

    This is really just a gadget so I don't think I could spend that sort of money for something I wouldn't use every day.

    Definitely not for that price! I actually wouldn't at any price. I still use a flip phone and don't care for these gadgets.

    I can look like a dork for a lot less money.

    People are going to get those things snatched right off of their heads, especially if they live in high crime areas. It would be like having a $1500 purse stolen, but easier to identify and easier to steal IMO. icon_lol.gif

    Or maybe I'm just being paranoid, lol

    I still wouldn't trust $1500 loosely attached to my face though.

    Well, you're looking at $800+ for a new cell phone so it's not like we aren't already walking around with expensive tech gear.

    But we don't have to hold it to our ear 24/7 to make use of it :)

    I feel old now.

    I'm already going in tonight for an eye check up, I'm definitely going to need glasses.

    Google is just rubbing it in my face now.

    We don't have to, but most people I know are texting/browsing/facebooking about 90% of the time anyway!

    Don't you think that's an inflated figure? The vast majority of people upgrade at a much lower cost than $800.

    Sure they do and I'm sure Google glass will eventually have a similar price point with contracts. I was just making the comparison that carrying around and using high priced tech is nothing new.

    A person discovers he/she can record anything through the use of cool looking and new technology
    Google Glass for recording: $1500
    Cool new hair style to go with Google Glass: $15-$40
    App to secretly record through Google Glass: free
    Getting beat up and/or sue for wearing Google Glass and/or recording: priceless

    too much? too little? :D

    Way to expensive, i'll have to wait, i'd rather purchase a 5.1 home theater system

    This product is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen and the "fashion" statement that comes with it is even more ridiculous.

    Just wait, thirty years from now, all of us then old people will be telling the younger people about what things were like before smart glasses.

    I doubt it. Maybe it's just me, but I seriously doubt that walking around with a camera on your head 24/7 (turned on or not) will become socially acceptable in my lifetime.

    wait for a contact lense that will be able to do the same thing

    I'll second that it's cool tech but way to expensive I could spend maybe $500 at most for it. However, I would more likely spend only $200 on this gadget since it's a novelty. Otherwise I will pass icon_lol.gif

    Mobile technology can keep advancing all it wants but until a major breakthrough in battery technology comes along things like watches and face gear will be a novelty. I use a Fitbit Flex and I wear it every day, so much I almost forget about it but it syncs with my mobile devices and keeps me walking during lunch. A big reason I like it is that I only have to charge it once a week over night.

    If Apple or Google makes a really nice watch with fitness capabilities, simple notifications but most of all is a nice looking watch I will buy it but only if it has a battery life that I only have to plug it in maybe once a week(?) like the Pebble.

    I agree with you SteveLord. :) The kids these days and their new-fangled "glasses". icon_pirat.gif
  • FloOzFloOz Member Posts: 1,614 ■■■■□□□□□□
    Bunch of people around my office were walking around with them on today. They seem pretty cool. Personally I wouldn't buy them unless they came in the contact lens form, which is in the works. I did get to try out the glasses and it surprisingly worked very well.

    I ordered one at 9am. At 9:05am Chase called my wife concerning 'suspicious activity'. My wife called me, and I told her yes, the charge is valid. She wasn't happy with that. At 9:10am I cancelled my order. =(
