One of the +1 of +Google Glass is I guess it would make people less narcissistic? Because it stops people from navel gazing, staring at their phones and taking selfies like narcissus who admired himself too much in the mirror to the point he had a deep hatred of other people. One day when he looked in the mirror to worship himself once more, and he turned to dust.

Glass is a very sociable technology. It might even make people make eye contact again and bring people physically closer together rather than preferring to distance themselves through the phone and not wanting to talk to people face to face.

Maybe we need more of glass like technology to make mankind human again?

Anyone else scared to even use their device since Google went silent. At this point there are no official statements on anything, no updates, no word on what happens next for those of us who dropped $1500+ on the device. My understanding is that the team is still pretty good at repairing failed units, but the +Google Glass team really needs to step up and say SOMETHING.

Look, I get it, I bought the device to be a part of the program, and wasn't promised anything, but we went from monthly updates, to..fell off the map, overnight. And I am still pretty perturbed that my favorite feature, Hangouts, was removed and replaced with..Livestream? Give us something..at least closure?

I have a close friend who has a degenerative eye disorder and is slowly going blind. We read that Google Glass can help expand the range of sight for people with this disorder, so I gave them my Google Glass.

It worked exactly as hoped and is extending their line of sight making things like crossing the street safer (they can no longer drive).

The issue is they need for the +Google Glass​​​​ to stay turned on not just for photos or apps but all the time, have the viewfinder turned on permanently. Does anyone know of an app like this or who can make one for him?

Updated, Prism repair kit I have successfully repaired the foiling issue on +Google Glass​ need to add a polished metal layer for looks but the important part is the Display and clarity are perfect. The kits will include materials to put on a new layer of "Foil" and then a soft insulated cap to protect the new foil. The best part you only have to purchase one kit you can repair kit you can repair it multiple times of you get foiled again. Let me know what you think any questions let me know!

I gotta learn to wear glass more often. But thing is, you who wear glasses can because glass is your prescription glasses. For me who doesn't wear glasses it isn't as easy just to grab glass and put it on. It ends up being like just another electronic device like my camera where I don't use it all the time or as often as I use my phone. It's not like taking your phone with you or putting your shoes on, if you catch my drift?

+Brett Kessler my business partner lives in Manitou Springs and I was in town for work and play from flat land Florida...otherwise I would have definitely been up for a run with a fellow Explorer!  I am sure Glass comes in handy on all these endless trails...

I just don't think making glass a consumer device is really practical for everyday consumer use. I mean, it stops people from looking down at their phones yes. It just looks more like something you'd see in an industrial/work place setting than a everyday consumer setting.

What do you think? Do you think glass is really impractical to be given to people as a consumer device?
