    Loving how people are knocking the Google Glass. It may or may not take off and this is one of the first devices of its kind, so it will be quite expensive. I bet you loads of people were knocking the mobile phone when it first came out.

    The very way he got famous was exactly what you're doing.

    Will take off once the tech can allow the display on regular glasses or sun glasses and when you can drive it without using voice commands (can you imagine how irritating it would be if you were surrounded by people all calling out voice commands to their phones?).

    From over 3 years ago and technology has already advances significantly since that time. We can already control most devices with thoughts alone. Just a little calibration needed. Military has been utilizing this in experimental contols for pilots etc. In theory, your reaction time can be much quicker if your brain doesn't have to send an impulse to your finger to pull the trigger but rather go right to the source.

    I would have assumed that they've been working on this for years.
