No. I don't believe this will have the same revolutionary impact as the original iPhone. First of all let's remind ourselves what it is... What is it? Did you pause and wonder and strained a bit even trying to work out what it is. It's meant to be a smart device with a heads up display. What do you do with it? Calls, maps, messages - not likely to have apps - and how do you interact with it? Voice input. Let's try to remind ourselves again why that's a bad idea. Voice is frustratingly inaccurate - look at the best in class at the moment. Siri still gets it wrong because sometimes our speech distorts when we're tired, lazy or drunk. While that is ok for other humans to interpret computers just think we're being idiots and doesn't understand. The same can be said with google voice in current android implementation which arguably still a bit behind Siri. Unless you 'sit up straight' and perfect the timing of your diction and voice during that brief window when you're allowed to send instruction to a device it's going to be... Well frustrating to use.
Now let's go back to iPhone original's launch. It was simple and you know what it does. It did what all the current smartphones were doing at the time and just made it simpler and so much better.
Unfortunately project glass is all new and will rely on voice input that's still not polished at its current form. Yes this might be revolutionary but it's launching too many seemingly 'beta' features that it might only attract the earliest of adopters.
Perhaps project glass version 2 will have better success?
