I wonder what people will do in 100 years when you can get it in contacts form and it is undetectable by naked eye.
Probably just wear it, since it will likely be how you interface with your computer. Wearable technology derived from today's experiments with Glass, Oculus and others will eventually have the ubiquity of today's cellular phones.
People said flying cars would be ubiquitous 50 years ago. They ended up being full of shit. Your prognostications have the potential for just as little validity.
If major companies had been bringing early flying cars to market 50 years ago and been doing market research with them on customers, they would at least have inspired whatever kind of car you drive today.
There's a big difference between speculating on the future of technology and actually developing it using real devices that are available for people to buy. Don't lose sight of the future or it'll pass you by. It approaches swiftly.
GM made a fuel-cell car 50 years ago. Guess what? The predominant mode of transport still requires burning gasoline (or diesel depending on what side of the oceans you're on) in a more-or-less traditional internal combustion engine. And fuel-cell vehicles for you and me are no more a reality now than they were then.
Honestly, the fact that anyone can record/snapshot anything you do and upload it to their facebook/twitter/whateverthefuck scares a lot of people.
I just think they're stupid looking
You don't really think that's the same thing, do you? The auto companies had a vested interest in developing that technology, patenting it, and then making sure it didn't enter the market at that time. This couldn't be further from that. The companies developing this want it to be transformative, not lock it up and prevent it from transforming the market. I feel like your emotional reaction to the device itself is preventing you from actually realizing how valuable and innovative this type of technology can be.

Not really...I see the difference between the word "innovative"/"valuable" and "what in the hell is this thing actually useful for". Google themselves have admitted they have no fucking clue what the glasses are useful for...so much so that they pawned off all app development to outsiders as they couldn't it out.
I don't understand the hate for GG wearers.
There are TONS of cameras recording you constantly, pretty much everywhere. Why single out google glass?
I doubt anyone here is going to slap their doctor mid-surgery for wearing Google Glasses.Ignorance breeds fear and hate. There's good and bad use for everything including knives in the kitchen vs on campus, cars for transportation vs DUI, cameras for photography vs upskirt, Glass for doctors vs ... but you get the idea.
