    It sounded like a good idea at the time. I never bought into it myself but I wonder how many people did.

    Here is an article that says it "may" be down, but not out.

    I actually have been keeping an eye on Google glass just because I want to see it evolve. It'll come back. Probably smaller. Maybe an implant lol

    If it wasn't for the price point, I would've picked a pair up to play with. It hasn't been anything more than a beta at this point, hence the fact that they use the term Explorers.

    I think it's got plenty of useful applications if done right and we all know that tech and the "Internet of Things" are headed to something like Eddie joked about, implants and etc.

    As someone who wears contacts/glasses, I'd be interested to pay an extra $100 or 2 for a pair of specs that also offer functionality of Google Glass, if they look more like regular glasses.

    It's an interesting tech for sure and I like that the author of the article believes it's not going anywhere. If nothing else, it's a great start/experiment into wearable tech.
