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.
