Yes, it will connect to other devices. If they can fit a computer into it, great... but if not, it's great if it's just a display device for the time being.

haha, well, at least they can have it almost boot!

I'm not criticizing, as I've only been programming for a hobby (sort of) for about a year, so I understand. Building blocks!

Vuzix is doing these the right way... Google's prototype looks annoying to look at and it's only 1 eye. Vuzix is a dual display that look like wrap-around sunglasses with a transparent screen. This would allow for a true heads-up display scenario for both eyes, allowing 3d. This could allow objects to look like they are actually in the same room as you, not just layered on top of it.

Good for watching porn any time anywhere ;-)
Also there's always going to be somebody watching a movie while driving. This tech will need some laws. Now if they could find a way to connect it to person's nervous system, that would be an accomplishment..

Yes, because what we all want are HUDs on both eyes obstructing our LOS with texts and graphs. For fighter pilots, that isn't a big deal in skies that aren't filled with traffic to begin with. WIth helicopter pilots, they have a HUD on only one eye (last I checked anyways). So to have a HUD on both eyes, that's a problem. If you look at Google's design, its not directly in front of your eye, allowing you to look up briefly to see what notification you need.

Google's approach is more intuitive and natural. It will also prevent you from trying to pay attention to the screen when there is something ahead of you to worry about (ie a car in traffic). What Google seems to want to do with this is create a simple widget/notification display and a camera with which to share video with.

It's a known fact that Vuzix aren't good.

It's OK when it's on your smartphone, but putting the screen near your eye somehow changes everything? What a bunch of trogs. TH never changes.

Bleh, I wouldn't wear that at all. Now I can have even more annoying things popping up all the time - not just on my laptop. I prefer to focus on the reality actually in front of me.

this is SOOO cool! I rly don't like looking at screens outdoors, head down to see something at my phone screen, and stuff like that, I rly hope they don't give up, cause there will be a LOT of issues with this tech, but for sure, will be the future... hopefully, way smaller =)
I also hope they realize how dumb is to have anything in the center of your fov... this just can not be! =)
