If this were the Star Trek universe it wouldn't be weird. We definitely need more voice activated stuff. I'm really looking forward to the day when I am having issues finding the right screw at the hardware store (you know what I am talking about...you find the ones just bigger and just smaller than the one you are looking for, the dang thing is never where it should logically be located) I can address the "computer" and ask it to locate the screw I need, and then have an attractive yet helpful voice respond with the appropriate information.
That would be nice.

Talking to your smartphone can be a bit weird too. The fact of the matter is that a device like this WILL add value to your life. How much value? No one knows. It has to be enough to outweigh privacy concerns. Google is going to need a strong developer environment and some keen marketing to pull this off. I haven't even found many startups in my travels that are focusing on wearable computing like the Glass platform. I've only found http://www.dsky9.com -- They have a free GlassFAQ with PSD templates for rapid prototyping Glass apps, UI/UX info, market analysis.. the whole shabazzi. I figured that I would pass it along because it was a great resource for me as a developer. Does anyone else have any insights on where this market will go? Will Glass be the be-all-end-all wearable form factor?

I'm just interested in wearable displays. Instead of having a smartphone, and a tablet, and a 13" laptop and a multi-monitor desktop, I wish I could only make-do with a smartphone and glasses or whatever that turn my entire field of vision into a display. Integrate motion sensing into it, maybe even subvocalization recognition, and we'll finally have one form factor to rule them all.
