I'm stoked - I can hardly wait! People think the estimated $1,500 is pricey but they obviously haven't bought a pair of real prescription glasses lately as I dropped about that much on 3 pair, regular, computer/reading and sunglasses.
Which brings up an interesting problem for those of us that actually wear glasses, how will we be able to use these things and will they be sunglasses too?
Too bad they don't have a smaller contact lens version yet, esp. one that could replace your permanent lens for my upcoming cataract surgery :)
We are the Borg, resistance is futile
Meanwhile, in another Google lab, they're working on Skynet...

The description tallies with a patent filing suggesting it plays sound via "bone-conduction" tech rather than earbuds.
Ten or so years ago a Japanese student came up with a wristwatch cellphone. The speaker part was worn on the outside of the wrist facing toward the bone. You listened by sticking your index finger in your ear and spoke into the microphone worn on the inside of the wrist. Ingenious.
