Google Glasses

Photo by Sebastian Thrun
I had an "aha" moment when I saw this picture and read Annalee Newitz's accompanying story. It's just a kid being swung around by his dad, right? Yeah, but there's more.

Imagine being able to record everything you see from your glasses. Cool, huh? Yep. And it's coming.

What do you think? Do you want a pair of these Google Project glasses
Would you go to the difficulties of wearing contact lenses with pixels in them?
