At $2600 its way too much money. However if they could get them down to less than $500. Then I would be on board.
Something else I would jump on board with is Project Ara (modular phone). What ever happened to that project? Where is it going? They were suppose to have devices out in the wild by now. I hope that project hasn't been put on the back burner.

Its clear hardware isn't ready for AR
Especially for something so tiny like Google Glass
IMO Google would be better making bigger and more capable like Microsoft's Hololens (even Hololens is still $3000), until hardware is ready
There's finally going to be more info about Project at IO in May
Hopefully its a market pilot

I remember when nice pair of glasses cost around six to eight hundred dollar. I would totally upgrade for smart glass designed glasses outfitted with proper optics over the regular pair I'm using

Oakley should make some smart glasses like Tag Heuer made a smartwatch.

$2600? Do you know how many more important things one can do with $2600

the design totally of balance, right part used for that huge device, while left part only have thin metal bone..
cant they put something like extra battery for that left part, to balance something..

"The company has already stressed that the product did not evolve as was hoped"
How about bring it back to the market for £300-400 and let it spread. Instead of a £1000 and whining.

Everyone here seems angry and confused. Google Glass still is not for "everyone", hence the giant price tag. It's clear you guys want one, that's why you're all angry with the price, but the glasses are, like you all have also said, in very early stages, hence the high prices.
They stated many moons ago that the price will eventually be for the consumer, but the Explorers edition and the Enterprise Edition are not for the consumer. And no, Google shouldn't make a hololens. Clearly you all also need to know that this is not AR, this is a notification hub with extra bits and pieces (speaker, camera, gps etc), for your face. I love my Google Glass EE, but it's got a few things to sort out before the consumer version is ready. This new edition moves in the right direction though.

Not many people are brave enough to wear Google Glass in public now.
