1,500 is a little steep for something I don't even know the specs of or how buggy it might be

yeah, i think this is a cool idea. I'd totally get one if it was affordable. I like this kind of stuff that looks like the stuff that people in the 50's thought we would have had 25 years ago.

Meh, it doesn't look that ridiculous. $1,500 to avoid reaching into my pocket and pulling out my iPhone, however, is a bit steep.

For $1500, it would also teleport me home after I picked it up in NY, right?

will not go with cutoffs and BOC vest, might have problems wearing with coon skin hat. Google can do better. I am interested in seeing if people will be able to wear these and concentrate on walking like a normal human. Also, is it waterproof?

Think of all the creepy real world applications. Now if there was a way to make the technology more discreet...

Its not something that interests me, but I think it looks cool. Do you think they have any faux google glasses that are completely superficial?

Looks cool but $1500 is way too steep.

Edit: Maybe steep isn't the right word. With the tech involved, I can't imagine they're cheap to make. It's just more than I'd pay for it.

i believe an eddysnake edition is in beta. Aviators with a confederate flag frame. for an extra $49, you can get "Heritage not Hate" in gold leaf on the frame.
