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.

The main problem is that all their promo videos.. show it up as just being a camera. I mean seriously, i don't care if its 6pm when i'm paragliding.

I don't care to get the GPS when i'm slaloming cars (i think i'd die in 10s otherwise.). I have the audio gps instead; much safer and convenient. (yes i slalom cars with a bike in a busy city.)

So basically, i've seen zero good use case for this so far. I think the software is just not up to it. Most of it should be unattended AND useful. Well, on phones, the unattended software sucks terrible hairy balls, so yeh. (its close to AI and that's hard to get right.)

Additionally, those promo videos are likely mostly recorded by pros, certainly professionally edited by pros into short clips, with nice music - that is why they seem impressive; not because of Glass, which will probably ~disappoint when used by more typical folks.
