Google Glass is Provoking a Backlash Because it's Rude to Wear a Computer over Your Eye | MIT Technology Review: "I’ve been reminded of that cyborg encounter by the advent of Google Glass, the Mann-like computer that has provoked a backlash even before hitting the market. I’m on record as predicting that Glass won’t take off except in very specific applications and certain jobs (like a surgeon, augmented for the very first time). But perhaps this is wishful thinking. Because one of the biggest strikes against Glass—that it looks hopelessly dorky—probably will go away as the design is refined. And then the only reason left for people to avoid it would be the fear of seeming like a jerk."
You want to know who will wear these (besides geeks)? Cops and military. Kinda scary.
