  1. Never let the machine control you, Its you who is and has always been in control, that's all I can say.

  2. The blind could use this as an audible GPS navigator tuned to pedestrians not cars, combined with an ultrasound object and hole sensor (sonic specs and long cane)the world will be accessable again.
    I dare say that spies and the military will have a use for it as well.

  3. I Imagined of a device that lets you see things differently with a computer you can actually see through you're vision. Now its starting to unfold. Next is Micro chips or micro memory hard disk to put in Information that human memory cannot hold.

  4. I really doubt that Google Glasses will take off in the mass market until they do not look like cyborg eyewear.
