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.

Well, the number one consumer of battery is our display. The number two consumer is signal processing. The display looks to be passive and probably won't work in a lights out, dark environment. The data connection is trickier, and with them showing hangouts up in the sky, they allude to an always on environment. That is incredibly difficult. I bet the battery life wouldn't be that bad if it isn't searching for signals, and as soon as it has to up the power to talk to APs you can watch it drain.
