How can eyeglass wearers use Google's Project Glass?
There is no question that Google's Project Glass has already caught a buzz. You can tell by how many satires of Google's video were made within just days of the announcement. One question that Google has heard often is if Project Glass will be available for those wearing prescription glasses. So the crew at Mountain View got to work, as you can see by the  picture on the Google+ site of Google employee and one of them was apparently used as a model for a mock-up of what Project Glass will look like over a pair of prescription frames.

While the final version for eye glass wearers might end up completely different, most of the early response was positive although some of those who commented on the picture worried about irritation. Kudos to Ms. Olsson and her team for even thinking about those who wear glasses. We still have no idea when Project Glass will be available and how much it will cost, but we have already seen Google's Sergey Brin use it in a real world setting.

So, eyeglass wearers out there, would you mind putting this contraption over one of your frames so that you too could enjoy Google's Project Glass?

My real question is can the "goggles" be used as sunglasses?

I think most Bluetooth headsets are totally dorkish. Kinect enabled Minority Report interfaces are meh, at best. I have too many papers on my desk to use MS Surface. And don't get me started on Siri - it's just too Bob with voice. But I'd gladly wear Project Glass with geek pride.

Contacts>Glasses

Sunglasses is the more interesting question. My guess is no with polorized lenses.

I would definitely wear them whenever I could, especially now that eyeglasses compatibility is confirmed. :)

So you would wear a smartphone right next to your brain.
Insanely enough, that is something everyone seem to keep ignoring about this concept - that it's a radiation risk at it's worst - and i just don't see how the fact can be bypassed.

It should be cancelled.

*ahem* I've been using a cellphone/bluetooth for over half a decade now. Many others have been using them for longer. We're fine.

So you're like our equivalent of the grumpy old man on his porch, right?

Admit it, if this was an Apple product you'd be all the f**k over it.

If you pay any attention whatsoever you'd know that the other guy tends to be a d**k about anything related to Google, on many recent articles about Google or Android.

I believe that the use of various high-tech glasses is very convenient, especially for the successful and business people. However, I do not really like the device - all in one, they often break down, and you have more problems with them. I have a pair of Oakley eyeglasses without any high-technology and I'm happy.
