this is like spending money on first dinosaur phones. wait out a bit and technology will get better. unwise to spend 2 grands on beta technology.
google made it clear, its for developers and rich people. not everyday consumers.

Yup, the price is ridiculous even at $1000, but i think it's because this is going to be the first of its kind.

The smaller the package the more it costs for the same perfomance... so for the amount of performance for the money it is destoptablet>smartphone>smart watch>google glass. I'm not surprised it costs this much

The glasses itself doesn't cost $1500... the whole development stuff, the RND ... all the men hours put into it... that's that price :) in the future it will come down, of course.

Yeah, the cost needs to come down, and they need to sort out how it works for those of us that wear glasses. After that, I would be totally in.

Will you guys be reviewing Google Glass then ?

Same here on both counts. I would save up and spend 5 or 600, tops. I'd much prefer to see the device come down closer to 3 or 400.

However, I'm happy to see Google get further with Glass than anyone else in the world did with similar concepts before.

You could always try wearing contacts. It's just a thought.

Contacts have their own issues. Glasses are cheaper and much easier to maintain.

I would imagine google will eventually sell prescription google glasses for people with bad eyes.

700USD should be right. Seeing as it's not capable of SMS messaging or 3G connectivity on its own.

man, it's a tough situation because like i'm sure a lot of you are thinking it's much too costly for a first generation product based on such a radical concept. i mean we want it to be successful so that it'll get better and better and probably also cheaper as Google Glass evolves but for that to happen quite a few people are gonna have to bite the bullet and jump on-board the Google Glass train initially. hopefully enough people just have to have Google Glass. i'll look forward to getting the cheaper 2nd or 3rd gen Google Glass.
