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.

Features presented are amazing, but in day to day life wouldn't people be reluctant to wear these glasses to avoid being ridicule?


Insecure people, yes, or people who sheepishly follow fashion. I, on the other hand, already look out-of-place everywhere I go, so plopping the Google Glass on wouldn't really change a thing.

You just have to ask yourself: "is the reason why I don't use the Google Glass because there is something wrong with the platform or something about it that makes it not work for my use-cases , or is it really because I am just too worried about what other people think of me?"

Oh yes you're a rebel because you look different.
Truth is, your style is to look different. That's because you do care about what others think. Don't tell me if you were the only person on the planet you would look exactly the same, that's nonsense.
Human nature is to care about what others think. Some people dress to mainstream fashion and others dress to the exact opposite, but both are equally driven by how you want others to see you.
