>The product began testing in April 2012.[9] The New York Times reported that the glasses would be available to the public for "around the cost of current smartphones" – $250 to $600 – by the end of 2012

ITS GONNA BE READY THIS YEAR, HOLY SHIT

>> No.24063417

>>24063376
For something that's barely functional and will be less useful than a regular smartphone? Yes. Pricing it off the bat at that is retarded. I'd rather spend that money on a 7970 or something that'll be much more useful and not make me look like a faggot in public.

It could cost even less, considering if the glasses connected to , say, an android phone. The phone would do the processing and internet connections while the headset only acted as a display.

no, but I just can't imagine the technology working that seamlessly and the voice operation being practical in the near future

>> No.24063513

>>24063465
Still, for something that'll probably be barely functioning, it doesn't seem worthy of the hype.

Take calling for example, hearing the call should be okay, but what about talking back? It'd have to use a speakerphone sort of technology. If you're in a crowded place, the person on the other end will hear everybody around you. Unless they decide to make it look even more retarded and give it some sort of speaker thing that hangs down from the ear.

I was referring more to the whole look of it. I mean, just look at the fucking thing. It's half a glasses frame with some stupid thing hanging down the side of it. Would you honestly wear that in pride? You'd look like the most retarded human being ever created.

The biggest problem with this whole concept is that you'll have to close one eye and strain pretty hard to focus the other eye on the screen. There's no way your eye will be able to 'read' the glasses otherwise.
