Imagine your glasses on info mode, so when your walking down the road, you just need to look at a building and all the information about it just displays in a seperate window, where you can scroll down by using eye movement.

I also can't wait until the first see through clothes app comes out :)

I don't have many geeky friends so i like to think I'm a fairly good evaluator:

There's noway Google Glass takes off as being cool. Smartwatches on the other hand, certainly could eliminate a traditional watch by 2017.

That's my prediction.
