Google This is amazing. Not only has Google just opened up the pre-order program for Google Glass to 'creative individuals', it has also unveiled what the user interface looks like and how it works. It's... Nothing short of amazing. I'm throwing money, credit cards, my car keys, my house keys, my Surface RT, my cats, everything at my screen. I want this so bad.

I like the idea, but:
* How well does it work?
* How long does the battery last?

Certainly the battery has to last a whole day, because it sucks to have it run out of power and you have to carry the device around in a not working state. Remember how we used to leave our homes with our walkman, only to have it run out of batteries before the first song ended?

Turning the device when you need it and off when you don't kind of damages the whole experience. The moment you need it it has to be there, not having to be turned on.

I also wonder if it's safe, because it might be very distracting when used in a car or just walking around.
